What is deal registration?
According to Technopedia: "Deal registration is a program of channel partners in which the vendor is informed about a business opportunity and is provided priority for it. The channel partners, like system integrator partners or value-added resellers, are provided with a definite period to bring the deal to a closure. However during this time, a vendor’s own sales team or other channel members are prohibited from striking a similar deal with the particular lead. Deal registration helps in lowering the channel conflicts between the channel members of a vendor’s internal sales team."
