Callware has also introduced three channel marketing programs to assist Callware dealers: Co-operative Marketing, Callegra Suite Rebate and Volume Rebate programs.

These funds can be used to reimburse the dealer for marketing expenses such as print advertising, direct mail campaigns, collateral materials, trade shows, end user seminars, etc. that are used to promote Callware products. The Callegra Suite Rebate Program provides a percent rebate to Callware dealers as an added incentive for selling two or more additional Callegra modules as part of their original Callegra system sale.
