LAS VEGAS – May 2, 2018 – Channel Partners, a resource for indirect sales channels offering IT and telecom systems and services, is pleased to announce that Broadvoice has been selected as a winner of the 2018 Channel Partners Choice Awards. This all-new award recognizes vendors for innovations in their channel-partner programs.
Three winners were honored during an awards reception on April 19 at the Spring 2018 Channel Partners Conference and Expo in Las Vegas.
“Channel Partners Choice awards recognize suppliers that deliver excellence in their channel programs, but you don’t have to take our word for it,” said Lorna Garey, editor in chief of Channel Partners. “These awards are 100 percent driven by the community. All CP Choice winners were nominated by current partners, with no incentive except saying ‘thanks’ for superior enablement, products and business support.”
Broadvoice was nominated by Sandler Partners, America’s Fastest Growing Distributor of Connectivity & Cloud Services and Broadvoice’s top-producing master agency.
“Broadvoice’s commitment to the channel and their success has helped our partners transition from selling circuits to selling other in-demand services like cloud PBX, UC, call center and SD-WAN,” said Alan Sandler, managing partner at Sandler Partners. “They’ve helped them grow their businesses by expanding the services they can sell, the types of clients they can help and the level of customer care they can provide. Broadvoice is a true partner.”
The Broadvoice partner network – composed of master agents, independent agents, value-added resellers (VARs), managed service providers (MSPs), interconnects, consultants and other technology distributors – more than tripled in 2017 because Broadvoice is not only channel friendly, but channel first in its go-to-market strategy. In the last year, Broadvoice has made a significant investment and commitment to its sales partners, including:
- A growing staff of regional channel managers for in-field support and sales enablement
- Dedicated solutions architects who host demos and engineer solutions for partners’ customers
- Partner sales managers who manage quoting and ordering for partners so they can stay focused on sales
- Creative revenue opportunities and industry-leading partner compensation with evergreen residuals
“It’s an honor to be recognized by Channel Partners for having an excellent channel program, especially since the award is based on feedback from the partner community. As a channel-first organization, we’re determined to make it as easy as possible for partners and their clients to work with us and achieve their desired business outcomes. This award affirms our success in doing that, which is very gratifying for all of us at Broadvoice.”
