Eaton Corp. announced a new Value Added Reseller (VAR) program called the PowerAdvantage Partner Program that allows IT solution providers to build their own power practices. This program is designed to provide VARs with the tools to deliver greater value to their customers, says Eaton, and maximize revenues within key growth segments: power and energy efficiency.

“The
PowerAdvantage Partner Program is the result of our deep collaboration
with the VAR community,” said Brooke Lang, global IT channel manager,
Eaton. “This program offers a welcome alternative for resellers in
terms of upfront rebates, sales support, training and competitive
pricing on award-winning products.”




Eaton’s
PowerAdvantage Partner Program is designed in two tiers—Authorized and
Certified—to provide added flexibility for VARs to achieve their goals.
The Authorized tier supports VARs that want to offer power quality
solutions without building in-house expertise. The Certified tier
supports those looking to establish a comprehensive power practice.
Eaton will offer two certification paths: Power Quality Design
Consultant and Power Efficiency Consultant. In addition, Eaton will
offer program participants two classes of uninterruptible power systems
(UPSs) along with other data centre solutions.
