Guide Identifies Broadview as Best at Meeting Customer Needs Enabling Partner Success
RYE BROOK, N.Y.—Broadview Networks®, a leader in cloud-based unified communications and information technology services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Broadview in its 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide. The list includes leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.
Broadview’s OfficeSuite® cloud-based product suite offers small- and medium-sized business and enterprise customers a variety of communications services that allow them to move infrastructure and software to the cloud for ubiquitous, secure and cost-effective delivery that ensures business continuity. Broadview partners can use MyOfficeSuite Agent, a single dashboard, to access and manage all of their customers in real time, down to the employee level. A nationwide team of channel managers further supports Broadview’s partners, ensuring that they have the sales tools, knowledge, training and support they need. In addition, Broadview provides extra layers of support through dedicated specialists who provide a quick turn-around on quotes and dedicated customer service representatives who are available around the clock to help with client repair tickets and customer relationships.
“Broadview’s channel program dates back to the 1980s and can support any size selling organization, from the small consultancies to master agencies with hundreds of underlying sub-agents,” said Donna Wenk, Senior Vice President of Alternate Channels. “We continue to grow and improve our channel program to offer our partners support at every level they desire to help them enhance their customer relationships to grow their book of business.”
Earlier this year, Broadview launched the new “Pick Your Own Fast Lane” incentive that runs through the end of the year and is available to all active agents. Agents selling service under the new highly flexible incentive program can earn up to 625 percent in upfront bonuses, and the incentive offers very competitive residuals. In addition, the OfficeSuite® Readiness Tool detects all networking issues to accelerate VoIP installation and ensure quality and reliability after installation.
“For channel partners, active support for their cloud-based solutions is more critical than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide recognizes vendors that provide excellent resources, training and financial incentives for cloud, doing their best to help partners make the most of this now foundational practice area. We congratulate Broadview on their inclusion in this distinguished group of vendors and invite the solution provider community to take full advantage of this terrific resource for finding the right cloud vendors to partner with.”
The CRN® 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide serves as a valuable resource for solution providers navigating the booming cloud marketplace, helping them to identify technology suppliers that offer innovative cloud solutions and partner programs. To qualify for participation in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, technology vendors must have a unique set of partner program benefits for solution providers that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.
The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/cloud-ppg.
