Hov Pod Partner Programs
Welcome to our Hov Pod partner introduction page. Hovercraft are not a new concept, the original hovercraft created was in 1950s. It is a concept that has experienced renewed interest due to the recent recognition of their proficiency in performing commercial applications such as solutions for Patrol, Search & Rescue, Survey, Exploration and Transport and innovative product improvements as compared to traditional hovercraft products.
In 2016 we began to experiment with integrated drone operations as there are many synergies between UAV and Hovercraft applications, we researched the many ways our products overlap and the ways they can enhance each other's operations. We are in prototype phase for an autonomous hovercraft which is nearly ready for market, the Hov Pod (USV).
Now we have our own drone platform, a robotic drone battery recharge and swap, developed tethered drone solutions, acquired a disaster preparedness communications system, partnered with a bystander medical rescue system and a unique water filtration manufacturer. We have hired experts in rescue planning, military, law enforcement and patrol operations. In 2017 we've integrated Hov Pod with these new technologies, created unique solutions and launched POD Ops (Perimeter Observation and Disaster Operations).

Hov Pod Referral Program
There are different types of partners, which are defined by the level of engagement and the agreements each party enters into to manage the relationship. Hov Pod Sales Referral Partner Program is an entry level of business development partnerships. This type of partnership has little accountability and responsibility for performance. The value of this strategy is often used to grow market credibility or to align with a partner that has strong relationships with prospective hovercraft customers.
Entering into a partnership for referrals is a first step to test the waters in our relationship. It allows both of us to measure the commitment, willingness and effort required in working together to develop business. A sales referral partnership gives us the ability to determine if this is simply a PR initiative or will actually grow revenues. We will also monitor the organizational support in sales and marketing required to get deals closed.
Our relationship can be a one-way lead pass or a two-way referral agreement. We will both need to determine the best opportunity to refer business by passing on leads, receiving referrals or both.
Sales Referral Partners can be “handshake” in nature if you do not plan to hold anyone accountable for the outcome. It is commonplace for business service professionals who network together to develop non-binding relationships to help open doors and extend value by making credible introductions to other service providers or their respective clients.
Hov Pod Broker Program

Hov Pod, pays the commissions that a hovercraft broker earns – not the buyer, yet we realize brokers have a duty to both buyer and seller in every transaction.

Hov Pod Reseller/Rep Program
There are many types of reseller businesses that you could start. Some reseller businesses require a physical premise and stock, however ours is a Manufacturer Rep business that can be run entirely over the internet or traditionally sales without out pre-purchasing stock. Hov Pod is looking for ladder means you could start a hovercraft reseller business quickly, easily and with little or no capital investment. If you buy and keep inventory we consider you a dealer.
An international Hov Pod reseller may be responsible for, in addition to sales solicitation, handling inventory, dealing with tariffs, and complying with government regulations.
Whether you want to start a Hod Pod reseller business as a full time business or part time as a secondary source of income we will help you to plan your business!
We consider that if you don't own inventory you are a actually a manufacturers' representative, a independent sales representatives or sales agent, is an individual, sales agency or company that sells a manufacturer's products to wholesale and retail customers.
When Hov Pod hires a manufacturers rep firm, this usually means that a contract is signed between our two companies, which empower you to sell, or solicit sales for, the Hov Pod products as an agent in a defined territory. The products will be ordered directly from Hov Pod, and we will pay sales commission.
Hov Pod Dealer Program
Local dealers who are long-established members of their communities can get closer to customers than a global company can on its own. Hov Pod believes to tap the full potential of our dealers, we must forge extremely close ties with them and integrate them into our critical business systems. We know, dealers can serve as sources of market information and intelligence, as proxies for customers, as consultants, and as problem solvers. Our dealers play a vital role in almost every aspect of our business, including product design and delivery, service and field support, and the management of replacement-part inventories.
Our dealers are be much more than a channel to customers. They play an important role in providing customers with a wide range of services before and after the sale. Those services include advice on the selection and application of a product, financing, insurance, operator training, maintenance and repair, and help in deciding when it makes economic sense to replace a machine.
Creating an outstanding distribution organization requires significant investments by both of us and its our independent dealers who are the back bone of the distribution channel. Although those investments take the usual forms of money and capital assets, they also include softer assets such as training and developing a common understanding of what it takes to provide superior customer service.
The quality of the relationship between Hov Pod and our dealers is much more important than the contractual agreements or the techniques and tactics that make the relationship work on the surface. What matters is mutual trust, and that is fostered by observing a few simple rules: Share gain as well as pain; strive for continuity in relationships and consistency in policies; and communicate constantly. For a company like us that relies on independent dealers to present one face to its customers around the world, we must have uniform practices and performance standards for dealers and treat them all with equal consideration while recognizing that they are independent and unique in many ways.
Hov Pod Distributor Program
Hov Pod provides its distributors innovative, commercial grade hovercraft, delivered on-time. Its our responsibility to make sure customers are happy with their craft and referring other customers. However we deliver other types of support as well. The most common is exclusivity, pricing, sales and marketing support, and new or improved products in the pipeline.
ExclusivityHov Pod will typically be open to exclusive regions established within new markets as a means establishing new territories that we would have little hope of building a network in with the help of a distributor. The regions can be big or small, country, a territory or perhaps just a city. But as in most arrangements this type of exclusivity will carry its own expectations from us as well. Hov Pod will expect a ramp up in orders and sales during the period of exclusivity. And if mutually beneficial we will support the distributor to help grow the brand. The level of support will vary from simply supplying graphics and collateral materials to arranging Hov Pod demos, or providing co-op marketing or marketing support for the region.
Pricing adjustments are sometimes warranted, this will entail both sides balancing price against order sizes, etc. Sometimes prices will be used instead of providing other marketing support. Essentially, the additional profit would be used by the distributor to market and promote the manufacturer’s brand.
Sales and Marketing support, Hov Pod will provide regular phone calls or meetings, presentations, demos or simply providing new information, photos, or marketing materials. If the market has substantial growth potential Hov Pod will actively promote the brand to help drive end-user sales down the channel pipeline.
New products, Hov Pod is continually working on new products and solutions that will drive new interest. We know the same product sold for years and years will grow stale among consumers and so continual improvement or replacement is necessary - the need for iteration is driven by the consumer’s fickleness. Our channel partners can expect new products and solutions in the pipeline several times a year or at the least, annually.
In the hovercraft industry, distribution and product support remain underappreciated strategic assets. That situation is different for Hov Pod because we believe the global winners over the next 10 to 20 years are going to be the companies with the best distribution organizations that also provide superb customer support. Hov Pod also offers engineering excellence, manufacturing efficiency, and superior quality and it is why we will be a player. Manufacturers who fails in this endeavor will disappear, indeed, most companies deficient in those areas have already disappeared.
