AGCO Australia’s Five Star Incentive Program is aimed at the development of dealers both large and small. The program identifies specific areas where dealers can improve their businesses, streamline operations and increase profitability through professionalism and growth.
Successful participants in the program gathered at the picturesque North Queensland resort town of Port Douglas, Australia where representatives from AGCO presented them with results from the 2012 program and plans for 2013. Dealers were also invited to tour the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, as well as attend a formal function.
Opening the Meeting, AGCO Managing Director and Vice President ANZ Warwick McCormick outlined future possibilities for dealers emphasizing AGCO’s global product strength which now extends to grain storage and handling facilities.
Also in attendance, Gary Collar, APAC Senior Vice president and General Manger, outlined the cooperative approach of the program and strategic initiatives for 2013, while also presenting awards to dealers acknowledging their ongoing participation.
Key features of the 2013 program requirements include the addition of AGCOSHOP as well as a greater emphasis on dealer websites and social media. AGCOSHOP will allow dealers to better service their local parts market and supply parts to not only AGCO brand products, but a wide range of parts and accessories for other brands of tractors and implements.
Congratulations to all participating dealers for their efforts throughout 2012. AGCO looks forward to this continued partnership with dealers which improves the supply of quality products to customers, enhances after sales support and will drive business improvement well into 2014.
