The event featured presentations from Nokia on the strategic alliance with ALE and its benefits to the partner ecosystem. The Nokia – ALE partnership will seek to expand ALE’s current verticals to include energy and utilities, while simplifying technical support and the procurement process and providing cost-effective and reliable network end-to-end solutions to customers.
Building on its impressive portfolio of partners, ALE has revitalised the global partner programme for 2022 with a new HI-TOUCH onboarding plan for new partners. The company aims to use its experience to further build efficiencies into its partner ecosystem and deliver optimised results for customers.
ALE has also launched its channel rewards programme, previously known as Build2Win, in the APAC region. The new programme, named GOPARTNERS2022, focuses on grooming ALE’s Indirect Reseller community by encouraging and supporting partner sellers to grow with ALE.
These programmes align with the core principles of ALE’s partner enablement blueprint, which prioritises loyalty and dedication to ALE’s partner ecosystem. ALE’s organisational strategy also serves to further drive partner success, including leveraging technology to implement agile working practices so the company is better positioned to support partners with their project needs and adapt quickly to the dynamic industry landscape. This has allowed ALE to strengthen its supply chain resilience, improving delivery accuracy, reducing stock levels and driving more secure shipments for high-volume transactions, even during shortages, to ensure business continuity for partners and steady quality service for customers.
