How does the Engage & Grow program work?
An authorized manager of the company registers the company and decides whether the company will use a single prepaid credit card for the whole company or every member of the sales team will receive their own prepaid credit card. The manager then defines a program administrator who invites the members of the sales teams to the Engage & Grow portal. Each member of the sales team will receive a personal login for the Engage & Grow website.
What exactly are BonusPoints?
The company sales team can collect BonusPoints through the purchase of predefined HPE products at authorized HPE Distributors. Company related sales targets for turnovers of certain product categories can be determined by HPE. Each team member can access the Engage & Grow portal and see the team's performance.
At the end of the incentive period, the administrator distributes the BonusPoints (in accordance with the number of points achieved in the team) to the company’s card or the cards of the members of the sales team. The BonusPoints will then be converted to a monetary value onto the prepaid credit card.

Is there a maximum limit of BonusPoints which one may collect?

How can I redeem the BonusPoints and obtain cash on my credit card?
Unless you are an Engage & Grow program administrator, you cannot redeem your BonusPoints yourself. Instead, your administrator credits a certain cash amount to the prepaid credit card at the end of the Incentive period.

The distribution must be made within 4 weeks, otherwise it expires.
