The Oracle Remarketer Programme

First Distribution offers a great opportunity for midsize companies to resell Oracle products via its
‘Oracle Remarketer Programme’.

Specially formulated to have zero barriers to entry, the programme allows resellers to sell Oracle with no initial investment and transact Oracle business immediately with no complicated agreements and up-front commitments.

In addition, partners are able to leverage First Distribution, an authorised Oracle Value Added Distributor, for full support, training and other reseller services.

Historically, only larger enterprise resellers were able to invest in building an Oracle practice. However, with the Remarketer programme, the start-up costs are eliminated allowing partners to realise higher margins immediately and grow their businesses whilst having the option of joining the Oracle Partner Network (OPN) at a later stage in order to have access to a full range of Oracle offerings.

According to First Distribution’s business unit manager for Oracle, Maryka Lishman, it has never been easier to maximise one’s business opportunity:

“Leveraging the Oracle Remarketer programme enables resellers to enhance their current offerings” she says. “By offering customers technology solutions, partners will ensure customers for life.”

Some of the main benefits which Oracle offers to the midsize company include:

  • Affordability for today, scalability for tomorrow. Oracle offers solutions that are upwardly compatible, so that customers can get started at a low-entry cost and upgrade as needed.
  • It’s easy to manage and administer. The ease of use and self-managing capabilities of Oracle solutions enable organisations to minimise the total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • Security. Only Oracle has 19 third-party database security evaluations, providing unrivalled state-of-the-art data protection straight out of the box.
  • Flexibility. Oracle cross-platform supports all operating systems, development languages and tools
