ManagerPlus : About the PartnerPlus Program

- Extended Warranty Services that can be renewed indefinitely

What do we look for in a partner
There are several characteristics that stand out when we compare successful partners to those who are not so successful. ManagerPlus takes great pride in our products and in the quality of people who sell them. We consider our partners to be among the very best in the industry. It is with this in mind that we have tried to design multiple levels of alliances to fit everyone's level of expertise and sales commitment. Margins are based upon volume commitments; profit points are based upon volume.
PartnerPlus Program Overview
Our PartnerPlus Program is multi-tiered — offering opportunities, profitability and service to all levels of resale interest. The ManagerPlus goal is to establish long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our partners through continual improvement and development of new and existing products to meet the needs of your customers.
Bronze level is for partners selling $25,000 or less in wholesale dollars per year.
Silver level is for partners selling $25,000 to $75,000 wholesale dollars per year.
Gold level is for partners doing $75,000 to $150,000 wholesale dollars per year.
Platinum level is for partners doing in excess of $150,000 wholesale dollars per year.
All Authorized levels may have the option of developing networks of partners reporting to them. The total dollar amount of all partners in that network are considered contributors to the distributor's volume.
Positions are available in the United States and internationally for higher volume producers. Express approval must be obtained from ManagerPlus.
- Because of our size and product line, we attract partners worldwide. ManagerPlus currently has products in a multitude of countries internationally. Because of distance and language restrictions we require at least one individual in your organization to be fluent in English. All funds must be placed on credit card, or wired in advance of shipment unless otherwise approved.
- Exclusive territories are not granted within the United States. ManagerPlus fully recognizes and appreciates the dedication and hard work our partners put into each sale. Because of these efforts, we feel that sales, or referrals to branch offices outside a given area, should remain with the original partner, given they are actively pursuing the sale and have registered the potential customer with ManagerPlus. ManagerPlus will not take responsibility for the loss of sales to another partner.
- Exclusive territories are not typically granted to international partners. However, given the issues of selling a product produced outside their own country, ManagerPlus is open to discussions regarding exclusive territories internationally.
Requirements for becoming a PartnerPlus Partner
This program promoted by ManagerPlus allows for all levels of activity from partners. There are some partners whose busy cycles do not allow them to actively follow-up with customers who have displayed an interest in our products. There are those who prefer to recommend ManagerPlus products to their membership or clientele, and have ManagerPlus representatives provide the necessary expertise in determining the customer's business needs.
Simultaneously, there are those partners who see the full benefits and opportunities available for full time involvement and development of an active, profitable business. And, of course, there are many levels in between each of these two extremes.
With this program, you can choose where to place your aspirations. ManagerPlus has opportunities available at any level of comfort or motivation.
Other than Consultants, all levels are advised to purchase an Authorized PartnerPlus Startup Kit designed separately for each level. Included with each kit are the products and merchandising information known to make this level of resale successful. Online Personalized Training is provided with each kit.
Upon receipt of the Startup Kit and training, you will be provided with a login.
The products included in the Startup Kits are priced substantially less than typical partner pricing. The goal is to provide you with the maximum amount of material, software, and systems to help you achieve your goals as a ManagerPlus partner.
