Welcome to the Lenovo Partner Network. We couldn’t be more excited to have you aboard. Now that you’re here, we want to make sure that you know exactly how to make the very most of your new partnership with one of the most influential (and awesome) PC and data center manufacturers in the industry.

Welcome Home

First and foremost, pay us a visit at our homepage. It’s easy to remember – www.lenovopartnernetwork.com (U.S.) or www.lenovopartnernetwork.com/ca (Canada) – and it’s even easier to navigate. Once you enter, you’ll see everything that you will eventually come to know and love all laid out in an orderly fashion, just waiting to assist you in selling our technologies.

The Nitty Gritty

Now that you’re a Lenovo Channel Partner, dive a little deeper with us by perusing our New Partner Welcome Guide. We want to make every possible advantage available to you, and this is definitely the place to start. Begin with an in-depth examination of our company philosophy, then get even more acquainted with our fantastic list of products and services. From there, we strategically break down what to purchase, how to purchase, and how to make the highest possible profit margins and, in turn, achieve maximum success as a Lenovo Channel Partner.

Elevation Through Email

We subscribe to the notion that we are all perpetual students, and, as such, we’re always learning. As part of our #NeverStandStill mentality, we encourage novice and veteran Channel partners alike to personalize your subscription to our regular Channel email alerts. Throughout the month, we’ll help keep you informed on the latest and most exciting products, programs, promotions, and more. You can elect what you do and do not want to receive. It’s an easy and effective way to stay informed on all of our Lenovo Partner Network comings and goings.

A Program for Every Partner

At this point, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Wow! Being a Lenovo Channel Partner is going to be great!” And you’re not wrong, but the benefits don’t stop there. Our simple and profitable partner programs cover new customer bonuses, deal registrations, rebates, SPIFFs, demo units and more. In addition, our programs are stackable so you can gain even higher margins on your sales. View the stacking example on our partner programs page to see how it’s done. All we’re saying is, don’t miss out on all of these beneficial and potentially lucrative programs.

A Truly Powerful Hour

If you thought that we’d just give you an onboarding manual, send you a few emails a month, and cut you loose, then you are mistaken. We encourage partners of all levels of experience to join us for our monthly 4P Power Hour webinars. Though not as rowdy as the power hours you may remember from your college days, these insightful forums bring Channel experts and business partners like yourself together to discuss updates that will directly affect your business. It’s a great way for Channel partners to stay on top of the latest developments in the industry.

Finance with Confidence

It’s no secret that computer hardware (especially industry leading hardware) can be expensive. Fortunately for you and your clientele, the Lenovo Partner Network stands behind you and your customers to ensure that no one is left out it the rain. We gladly extend Partner Credit to our Channel partners, allowing them to maintain wider inventories and, as a result, provide their clients with more punctual deliveries. Similarly, our Financial Services offer your customers financing options that help them realize their most ambitious technology acquisitions. As you move forward, just remember, we’ve got your back.

Keep an Ear to the Ground

Finally, we highly recommend that you pay us a visit on our various social properties, especially Twitter and LinkedIn. We aim to provide our Channel partner community with a private forum in which they can discuss strategies and tactics with peers. These platforms also serve as a repository for a wealth of content that simultaneously informs, inspires, and elevates our partners, not just in their businesses, but in their lives, too.

So, there you have it. It’s just a start, but it’s the start of something great, and that should truly excite you. Whether you are still on the fence or already over the moon, becoming a Lenovo Channel Partner is an exciting and rewarding next step. Thank you for making it, and don’t be a stranger.
