The goal of the Minnovation Technologies (MIT) Integrator Program is to provide an easy path for system integrators to generate business and create revenue from MIT products. As system integrators progress through the levels of the program, their benefits increase. In order to advance through the program, integrators must demonstrate competency and enthusiasm for MIT products.

One of the core benefits of the program are the joint marketing and lead generation opportunities. We respect that each integration company has its own business practices and models, and we endeavour to work with each member of our integrator program fairly. It is our goal to provide fair and equal support to our entire integrator base; we do this by remaining neutral and not recommending any single integrator over another. We believe it is the end-users who should be able to make their own choice.

Additionally, we want to respect the existing end-user relationships cultivated by the members of our Integrator Program. We do this by registering that customer with their integrator’s accounts in our system and also on the AlphaX platform. To ensure this information is up to date and to avoid potential conflicts of interest, we ask program members to let their MIT account representative know as soon as possible about new opportunities and existing customer relationships. At that point if there is already a current relationship between that customer and another member of our integrator program we will attempt to resolve potential conflicts and ensure all stakeholders understand the nature of the engagement – and ensure that the end user outcome and the experience with MIT/AlphaX products is maximised.

Integrator Program benefits are earned through direct product sales to their customers customer base. To ensure that sales count towards program benefits, it is important that integrators link their customers to their accounts as soon as they begin working with them.

Here are a few examples of sales that do not qualify for the Integrator Program benefits:

  • Sales in which the customer has purchased products from MIT and is being referred for integration services,
  • Sales in which the customer already has a Master Agreement, or schedule of rates in place with MIT.

Required Business-Practice Standards

Integrator Program members must follow a Code of Conduct that is required of every MIT Integrator as follows:

  1. Conducting oneself in all circumstances with honesty and diplomacy.
  2. Working effectively to resolve customer issues and keeping MIT up to date on the status and eventual resolution of the problem.
  3. Treating MIT as a valued business partner rather than a competitor in the selling of products. For example, every Integrator is expected to respect a pre-existing business relationship between MIT and an end-user, just as MIT will respect any previously established relationship between an integrator and an end-user. Notwithstanding the above, occasionally end-users demand a direct relationship with MIT. In this case, we ask that the Integrator work with both their customer and MIT to best serve their customer’s needs and provide the best support for the customer.
