Learn How to Maximize Your BIF

Did you know you have a new ability to allow your Distributor see your earned Dividend Estimates? Why would you want to do this?

  • It increases the value Distributors can offer you, particularly in helping you reach the next Partner level and maximize profitability.
  • Distributors can identify deals that will maximize your dividend accumulation and thereby increasing your Reward earnings!
  • Distributors can help you proactively plan and manage your earned Business Investment Fund (BIF) dollars. To be able to see your earned dividends and how can they equate BIF rewards early in the cycle can help you avoid the expiry of any unused BIF funds!
  • You can direct your BIF to Distribution to purchase business development activities, such as Riverbed training, marketing and demand generation activities, NFR Demo products, etc.

How to:
Log into the Partner Center, click on “My Account” (from the drop down menu under your name in the top right corner) and click the “Allow Distributors to view Earned Dividend Estimates” checkbox. You can cancel Distributor access at any time by unclicking the same “Allow Distributors to view Earned Dividend Estimates” checkbox. Please contact us at partners@riverbed.com with any questions.
