Accreditation schemes are crap – D-Link

We can do better, Taiwanese firm claims

D-Link, the Taiwanese networking vendor, is looking for 30 resellers to join its new streamlined partner program. Vendor accreditation programes have become too confusing and too complicated, the company claims. "Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards have become no more than pieces of paper." Provocative, heh?

The company says that low numbers of targeted committed resellers will enable it to support and service efficiently. It promises good rebates for dealers who join up.

It's launching the programme with a roadshow taking in Dublin, Leeds, Falkirk, Birmingham, London, Brussels and Amsterdam.
