Singapore, Feb 28, 2011 – (NYSE : MSI) - The formation of Motorola Solutions after the separation of Motorola earlier this year has enabled the company to further sharpen the focus on its strategic growth priorities. One of its key initiatives is to align its resources with the intent to further deepen its engagement with its valued channel partner community, strengthen mutually beneficial relationships to position Motorola Solution and its channel eco-system for an even stronger and more profitable business growth.
To share its vision of growth, industry opportunities and plans with its channel partners, Motorola Solutions is holding five channel conferences in various Asia Pacific markets this quarter to directly engage with the nearly 2,000 channel partners including application developers, system integrator and independent software vendors across South East Asia, India, China, Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Themed "Seize the Moment. Begin. Believe. Become", Motorola Solutions is reiterating its commitment to involving its channel partners in every aspect of go-to-market plans and share the benefits of growth into new vertical markets. Motorola Solutions is rolling out its PartnerEmpower™ program in the Asia Pacific later this year for its channel partners, with an aim to provide resellers and partners with new benefits and growth opportunities and at the end of the day build up a world-class channel community.
The details of the new initiatives and new business opportunities now available to the channels include:
- PartnerEmpower™: A single unified channel program that brings Motorola’s Radio Solutions, Wireless Network Solutions and Enterprise Mobile Solutions partners together under one umbrella. The program is designed to support and strengthen the business and competitiveness of Channel Partners by making available the combined strength of Motorola’s wide range of solutions for enterprise and government.

- PartnerEmpower’s™ unified framework allows channel partners to differentiate their expertise, maximize their profits and be rewarded for their investments in building specialization in Motorola Solutions key technologies and markets. Through its various tracks, channel partners will have the opportunity to achieve new levels of revenue with access to the market’s broadest product portfolio, a comprehensive training and certification program, and extensive marketing, sales and technical benefits, to help better serve Motorola customers.
Specific benefits include:
- Recognition and differentiation for technology and market specialization – and resources for enhancing their expertise even further.
