PARTNER CODE REQUEST FOR MY COMPANY

So I work for the public utility in Anchorage, Alaska and I see under Ford Partner companies Municipal Enterprises and Public Service Electric & Gas companies qualify. No one at my company or with the city has any idea about this program. We fit this description but our company has never had a partner code so I called the Ford people and had my HR manager email them at the xplan@ford.com to request one. I've heard that Ford is very picky about giving these out and I wanted to know if anyone has been through a similiar process or does anyone know if I have a good chance.

Thanks

Hi alaska. As it seems has already been done, you need to have your HR Director contact Ford and find out your Company's "Ford Partner Code" (assuming your company is eligible). If your company has never yet registered for Ford Partner Company Eligibility, they will need to do so now. I do not know how long that process may take.

Once you have that code, you can log onto the Ford Partner Company website. There, you would provide the proper information to allow you to register for an X-Plan PIN. Ford Partner Company employees are allowed two X-Plan PINS per year.

Ford Partner Employees used to be able to register over the phone with Ford AXZ-Plan Headquarters, but that policy was changed recently.

So bottom line is you need to keep the pressure on your HR Director to get that information. :Pokey:

Good luck.

Re: PARTNER CODE REQUEST FOR MY COMPANY

Yeah the thing that strikes me as a bit confusing is that under the eligible ford partner company lists (http://www.pierreford.com/special.cfm?ID=2469- this page may not be the law but it shows a list of companies and Pierre ford does a lot of X-plan deals) it shows Municipal Enterprises and Public Service Electric & Gas Companies and this is pretty much a blanket offer across the country as there are many Municipal owned companies across the nation and many public utilities. I worked for a public utility that is owned by the municipality so I thought it would be pretty clear that we belong under that criteria but many people say, "Well if you haven't been a partner before, you are probably not one." But I find that to be untrue.

Hi alaska. It is hard for me to tell from your post, but I believe the problem may be that you do not quite understand how the acquisition of a Ford Partner PIN actually occurs.

I will try to explain: Dealers do not have any say in issuing a PIN. So it does not matter if your company is on the list and the Dealer knows it or not. The Dealer can do nothing as far as getting you a PIN, or assisting you in acquiring one.

It works like this: If you are an employee of a Ford Partner Company, your company has a Ford Partner Code. Ford Partner Company Employees (such as yourself if your company qualifies) get that code from their HR or Personnel Departments (if their HR/Personnel dept staff know how to do their jobs correctly).

Once the Employee has his company's Ford Partner Code, the employee then goes to the Fordpartner.com website, and inputs that code to acess the website. Once on the website, the employee can register for an X-Plan PIN, access X-Plan rules and information (like the information I have been giving you), browse Dealer inventory, etc etc.

Bottom line is, without that Ford Partner Code for your company, you can not get a PIN. So your HR rep needs to do his job, contact Ford and get your company's Ford Partner code. Until then, we are all spinning our wheels.

I am not sure if this information answers your question or not. I hope it at least makes the process a bit clearer.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Good luck.

Re: PARTNER CODE REQUEST FOR MY COMPANY

Oh no I understand how the acquisition of the partner code works, I was talking with the people at the Ford X-PLan number not the dealer. The confusion inset because typically the ford partner companies are just that companies (Bestbuy, BP, Conoco Phillips, etc) but on that same list they show Municipal Enterprises & Public Service Electric & Gas Companies so it was a bit unclear whether that meant every one of those Municipal Entities or Public Service Electric & Gas Companies is eligible. Also I am going by the list on that Pierre FOrd site does anyone have a list they can post of the current ford partner companies and see if this impression I have is still true?

Hi alaska. Sorry I did not get back to you sooner. We left for the weekend yesterday morning, right after my previous post, and I was not able to access a computer until returning home tonight.

Here is a link to the list I use for Partner Company information: www.bigval.addr.com/commercial/x_plan.htm

I have no idea how up to date the list is.

Hope this information helps.

Good luck.
