A unique quarterly program to spur Acer's Retail Channel explosion

BANGALORE, February 2, 2006 ? Acer India, one of the world's top four branded PC vendors, announced their latest quarterly Retail Mega Scheme, "Race 2 Glory", aimed at rewarding their partners and encouraging them to expand their reach and product portfolio. The new retail scheme has been created to help the Acer retail channels avail maximum benefits from associating with brand Acer. Through this exclusive retail scheme, Acer plans to encourage and motivate its retail partners to reach bigger heights, as the company goes for an aggressive push through its retail channel.

The Acer "Race 2 Glory" is a scheme meant exclusively for the retail

channel and would be applicable for all purchases made between January 16, 2006 to April 15, 2006. It would comprise of 3 key sub-contests based on quantitative parameters and two special sub categories that will reward retailers on the qualitative aspects of retailing . The retail partners

comprising of Acer Malls (Exclusive brand shops) and Acer Points

(multibrand alignments) are divided into A, B, C and D category on the

basis of their geographical location. Each category of retailers based on

their geographical location and outlet type (Mall or Point) is then given

various types of targets like quarterly revenue targets, targets on product

categories etc.



During the period of the scheme, partners are expected to maintain Acer's

high standard of quality and operate within the market operating price

band. Special price and demo units are not included within the parameters

of this mega contest meant exclusively for this elite channel. To avail of

the benefits of the scheme partners are also required to follow certain

processes like filling in sell-out data in the Daily Sales Feedback System

on a daily basis as a way for Acer to track the product movement from the

retail counter which is an important method of gauging the pulse of the

market.



Mr. S. Rajendran, GM Sales & Marketing, Mobile & Display Products Group, Acer India, said, " The Acer "Race 2 Glory Road Ahead" is an exciting way to encourage our retail partners and involve them with Acer's long term goal of reaching out to our customers. The main objective of this program is to recognize performance across product portfolios and reward partners who have gone all out during the quarter and invested the most into our business. Our presence in the retail space has grown to over 200 outlets comprising of Acer Malls and Acer Points across the country in 2005. Today our retail channel reaches out to over 80 cities and towns. We have drawn out detailed plans to aggressively ramp up the retail footprint this year and we will be sharing these plans very shortly. With the present retail program we hope to further encourage existing partners to take the next step forward along with Acer in our quest for another big year for the company."



The Acer "Race 2 Glory Road Ahead" has four main contests:

'The Big Apple' , focuses purely on revenue achieved by retailers at the end of the quarter. Each category of partner for both Acer Malls and Acer Points will have a specific quarterly revenue target based on the total

addressable market in each of the geographical locations. There are two

levels of achievement for the partner to benefit from. In level one, upon

reaching 100% of the target revenue, the partner will win a full board

holiday package. In level 2, upon on achieving the 200%, 250% and 300% target revenue slabs, the partner will receive additional cash benefits. 'Kaun Banega Product ? Pati' rewards partners for achieving the monthly target in each product category. Based only on the sale of stock and sell models, there are 3 levels of achievement. 100%, 200% and 300% for Acer Malls and 100%, 150% and 200% for Acer Points. The products included in this category are Acer notebooks (All models except premium notebooks), Desktops (All desktops including Aspire and Acer Power series), TFTs (All models including 15" TFTs) and Projectors (SVGA models). In the LCD monitors category the 100% slab can be reached by 100% achievement on any of the 3 TFT product categories (15", 17" and 19"). The 200% rewards slab can be achieved only on one single category of LCD monitors.

'Digital Lifestyle Evangelist' is targeted at the premium products category

including Notebooks (Ferrari, Tablet PC and Ultraportable), Desktops (E

500), TFTs (20" and 24") and Projectors (only XGA models PD300 series, PD500 series and PD700 series). This contest aims to help the retailer cater to the needs of the digital age customer. The partner can win the cash incentives by meeting the target required on the collective sales of

the products mentioned.



'The Quality of Output' contest is designed to reward partners for their

excellence in the qualitative aspects of retailing. There are two awards

being given "The Best of the Best" and "Unique Marketing Initiative". The

winner of both these categories will receive a special trophy and a cash

award of Rs 10,000. The results will be decided at the end of scheme

period, through a carefully assessed audit conducted by the Acer

headquarters and recommendations of quality, initiative and performance

from regional managers.



The 'Best of the Best ' determines the top Acer outlet in the country. The

winner will be chosen based on the variety of models on display in the Acer Malls and Acer Points across partner categories, the variety of

complementary product offerings for a walk in customer, and the display/

look and feel of the outlet. ' The Unique Marketing Initiative' award

recognizes the partner's innovative marketing strategies, out of the box

ideas and exciting demo initiatives, along with meaningful customer

relationship management.



The quarterly retail scheme is Acer's initiative to embolden its retail

partners to grow their own business through the various opportunities

provided by Acer. Thus, expanding Acer's reach to their customers across the country and providing a key engine for growth for the company.
