This month, CRN recognized IntelePeer in its 2017 Cloud Partner Programs Guide.

The Cloud Partner Programs Guide is a list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers' cloud initiatives. Challenges in the cloud can be daunting to even the most experienced partners. The annual guide identifies cloud partner programs that help solution providers navigate the cloud market's many twists and turns.

What does that really mean for partners? Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, explains it more below:

"In a saturated cloud market, it can be difficult for solution providers to differentiate among cloud vendors and find the right ones to partner with. CRN's Cloud Partner Programs Guide simplifies this painstaking process, identifying the cloud partner programs with a compelling combination of resources, support, training and financial incentives. Our 2017 guide features a strong lineup of cutting-edge companies with proven track records of helping partners meet and exceed their customers' needs."

I asked Rob Clarke, Chief Commercial Officer, for his thoughts on why CRN continues to name IntelePeer to its channel lists. He feels that our commitment to partner success and the support system that we offer our partners is what makes IntelePeer deserving of this honor:

"We are focused on cultivating strong relationships within the channel and launch sales enablement tools designed with our partners' business in mind. We understand our partners need us to be easy to work with and responsive. Our channel-only sales strategy enables us to utilize our resources more effectively to better serve our partners and mutual customers. It's inspiring when a channel leader like CRN recognizes us and is proof that our efforts to put our partners first are working."

Through its award-winning Cloud Advantage Partner Program, IntelePeer equips channel partners for success by providing support, training, marketing development funds, and self-service tools, needed to excel in the business communications space. IntelePeer's voice and contact center solutions provide partners with flexible services, connectivity and pricing options to meet the needs of their customers no matter where they are in their journey to cloud communications.
