The GroupWise competitive upgrade promotion is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to open doors that may be closed to you right now. Customers who are currently using a competing messaging platform can trade up to the full-version GroupWise product, plus one year of Priority Maintenance, for only $US36 per user. That's essentially paying for one year of Maintenance and getting the licenses free! And this offer is good for as many GroupWise licenses as a customer currently has for their competing product.
While anyone with a competing messaging platform can take advantage of the promotion, we see particular benefits for customers who are using Microsoft Exchange, IBM Notes, Tobit David and various Linux-based products. You can also leverage the synergies between Novell GroupWise and Novell Identity Manager, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Novell Open Enterprise Server to tap sales opportunities among existing Novell customers who do not yet use GroupWise.
Promotion Details and Resources
This promotion runs through December 31, 2009. See the NPAs 5978-5980 for more details. To help you capitalize on sales opportunities, we've also prepared the following materials:

And while GroupWise includes a utility that facilitates migrations from Microsoft Exchange, you can streamline migrations from Exchange and other competing products with a product called Transend Migrator. Tune in to a 45-minute webcast to learn more.
This is an unparalleled opportunity to drive migration business and build a GroupWise base that can deliver ongoing revenue opportunities. Watch for additional resources--including a customer-facing presentation, a TCO calculator, competitive data and a TCO white paper--we'll be releasing in the coming weeks to help you drive success with this promotion.
