Air Points partnership - a first for IT

Renaissance Limited is about to send it’s customers soaring…

In a first for the IT industry, Renaissance has today announced it will become a partner in Air New Zealand’s highly successful Air Points Programme.

Renaissance is one of New Zealand largest distributors of computer hardware and software, with nearly 3,000 resellers including major retail outlets and individual dealers.

From March 1, all Renaissance Shop customers will be eligible to earn Air Points when they place orders on the company’s reseller web site.

Air Points will be awarded at the following rates:

 Every $5 ordered = 1 Air Point (all products except consumables)
 Every $10 of consumables ordered = 1 Air Point

During the first six months of the programme, Renaissance expects to pass on 6.5 million points. This represents over 200 return (Pacific Class) flights to Australia, or 80 (Pacific Class) trips to Singapore.

Renaissance Business Manager John Hayson says the move to Air Points will deliver a big competitive edge.

“This new initiative is unique in the IT industry,” says Mr Hayson.

“We view Air Points as an ideal vehicle to reward customer loyalty and promote the use of our web site. The move will increase our share of the distribution market”

The Air Points programme is available only to sales people who are authorised to purchase from Renaissance’s reseller web site. To qualify for Air Points, orders must be placed on the @renaissance web site. This programme does not allow for Air Points to be passed on to reseller customers.

Renaissance Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Renaissance Corporation Limited, a publicly listed company on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. Renaissance is one of New Zealand’s leading IT distribution companies, managing such brands as Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Compaq, Toshiba, 3-Com and many others.
