Now Launching...CSI 5

Power your business through the challenges ahead.

CSI 5: Overview

The Cisco Services Incentive Program (CSI) is a program designed to reward and increase margins for Cisco’s Gold and Silver Partners (like yourself) when they promote Cisco Services. It offers you an attractive rebate when you achieve your assigned target during the 3-month promotion period.

What you need to know about CSI 5
  • CSI 5 is a 3-month program.
  • The program runs from April 26 to July 25, 2009.
  • The CSI 5 target rebate matrix determines how your rebates will be calculated.

Example
Partner A booked $100k for Q4 FY08. Assuming his target is a 30% growth rate, Partner A has to hit at least $130k booking for Q4 FY09 to be eligible for the rebate.
So, if Partner A booking for Q4 FY09 is:

  1. $115K (i.e. 15% growth): Not eligible for rebate
  2. $150k (i.e. 50% growth): Rebate payout = $1.5k (3% of $50k )
  3. $210k (i.e. 110% growth): Rebate payout = $3k (3% of $100k cap)
  • Rebate Payment Period
    Rebate for Sales Achievement will be paid after the end of the 3-month program period. It is calculated by multiplying net growth by 3%. Net growth (before rebate) refers to the difference between bookings achieved for the year under evaluation and bookings for the same period in the previous year.
