Is there a new scoring method for the connectivity partner program?
We use the same scoring logic as the CPP2021. The only changes are that some metrics were removed or changed in the way performance is measured. For all details on the metrics, please check our CPP2022 guide (available when you login to Connectivity Hub via the Download link under the Resources tab).
Will partners get any alert when their score changes?
We are looking to test and integrate scoring information on the Connectivity Updates newsletters that are sent out. Details to subscribe to our newsletter can be found when you scroll down to the bottom of this page.
In reviewing the 2022 Connectivity Partner Programme Guide, the scoring system awards 1 point for 40,000 As Booked Room Nights (ABRNs). This level is almost impossible for us to reach every quarter. Will there be a more individual approach in the future depending on the partner's business/size?
The threshold of points for every performance metric in our program is determined by how all partners are performing. In this case, a substantial group of our partners is able to make it to 40k nights and even reach the highest thresholds for this metric. We understand that this is not true for all our partners, therefore, we balanced the program metrics in such a way that you don’t need to score points in all categories to achieve the Premier status. Of course, we are here to help your business grow any metric and give advice, including growing this particular metric.
What is needed to become a Premier Connectivity partner?
To gain a premier partner status, a connectivity partner needs to earn 400 points during the program year. For more information on how to qualify for the tiers and earn points, please review the 2022 Connectivity Partner Programme Guide (available when you login to Connectivity Hub via the Download link under the Resources tab).
Does the Connectivity Partner Program include different layers or tiers, such as gold, silver and bronze connectivity partners?
The current program does have different tiers of partners called Standard, Advanced and Premier. Each tier comes with different benefits and partners can learn more about the benefits and requirements in the 2022 Connectivity Partner Programme guide (available when you login to Connectivity Hub via the Download link under the Resources tab).
