Intelisys Recognized in CRN’s 2017 Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide

Commended for its leadership in enabling and educating channel partners
Petaluma, CA (July 24, 2017) – Intelisys Inc., a ScanSource company and the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor, has announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Intelisys in its 2017 Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide. This annual guide highlights service providers, infrastructure providers and master agents whose telecom, cloud and connectivity offerings help partners navigate and succeed in the age of IT-telecom convergence.
“The vendors featured in our 2017 Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide expertly equip their partners with the critical connectivity services needed to get customers to the cloud,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These companies feature some of the industry’s leading telecom, cloud and connectivity portfolios, along with outstanding marketing and sales assistance that enables solution providers to build lucrative, recurring revenue services.”
As customers increasingly look to dedicated advisors or consultants to guide their IT, telecom and cloud decisions, channel sales professionals benefit from the ability to vet and present a selection of best-suited supplier options and a one-stop resource for contracts and commissions. With access to a robust portfolio of carefully selected, high-quality cloud and connectivity vendors, the Intelisys Sales Partner community can offer an expansive and comprehensive range of world-leading network connectivity solutions to their business customers.
Intelisys has numerous innovative programs and initiatives to support its Sales Partners. Its financial resources include the Partner Investment Program, which has loaned more than $5 million to its Sales Partners to help them expand their businesses. Perfect for direct reps entering the agent world, Sales Partners can rely on commissions paid within 15 days of acceptance with the Advanced Commissions Program.
Self-paced education and certification, with a curriculum built exclusively for channel sales professionals, is available to Partners through Intelisys Cloud Services University. In addition, multiple training and networking events are held in cities across the United States every year, including Channel Connect, Super9, Mindshares and Partner Exchanges.
Intelisys Sales Partners also have access to various sales and marketing resources. Dedicated solutions engineering support and dedicated wireless & mobility support offer high-touch, pre- and post-sales support throughout the entire process. Through the Marketing ToolKit, Partners have access to brandable brochures, email campaigns and sales collateral resources. Club TPC Members have direct access to Intelisys leadership for coaching and mentoring programs, plus templates and resources for business strategy and planning, finance, marketing and sales.
“We are honored to be recognized in the CRN Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide,” said Jay Bradley, President of Intelisys. “The convergence of the IT and telecom industries is driving enormous opportunities for the channel. We are focused on offering integrated, complete cloud, telecom and connectivity solutions for our partners, as well as the tools, resources and support to help them grow their businesses. We have some exciting plans to roll out even more resources and services, as we look ahead through the end of 2017.”
