Intelisys Announces RDS Solutions as First Palladium Partner
Sales Partner Wins Drive for 5! Sales Program and Achieves Historic Milestone
GREENVILLE, SC – Intelisys, a ScanSource (NASDAQ: SCSC) company, and the nation’s leading provider of technology services and solutions, announced RDS Solutions has won the company’s prestigious Drive for 5! Sales Program and is the first Sales Partner to reach the Palladium Partner status.
“The RDS Solutions team is delighted to be the first Intelisys Palladium Partner,” said Darren Jones, Managing Partner at RDS Solutions. “Intelisys has been a great partner to us for the past 15 years, and we’re excited to represent our partnership at this level. We look forward to future growth and success together.”
The Drive for 5! program, launched in April 2015, was inspired by the tenacity and drive of the Sales Partner community aligning with Intelisys to succeed and meet increasingly ambitious goals. At the time of the launch of the Drive for 5! Program, only six Intelisys Sales Partners had reached Platinum Partner status.
An Intelisys Sales Partner since the company’s inception in 2005, RDS achieved Platinum Partner status in August 2015. Five years later, the company reached the Drive for 5! revenue milestone and made history as the first Intelisys Palladium Partner.
“We’re thrilled to have won Drive for 5!, especially in a year like 2020. It feels like a fresh start and allows us to continue momentum into 2021,” said J.R. Vernick, Managing Partner at RDS Solutions. “In celebration of this accomplishment, we provided bonuses to our very deserving team and made donations to Michael’s Feat and Telecom for Change. We’ve been involved with these organizations for many years, and this offered a fantastic opportunity to show our appreciation to our employees and give back to our community.”
