Intelisys Named Top MegaPath Channel Partner, Receives Pinnacle Award


Intelisys gratefully accepts top honors on behalf of its Sales Partners, among MegaPath’s Sixth Annual Channel Partner Awards Winners

Petaluma, CA (March 27, 2015) – Intelisys Communications Inc., the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor, was honored to receive the Pinnacle Award for Top Channel Partner from MegaPath for its success in selling MegaPath’s voice, data, security and hosted IT services in 2014.

“This award belongs to our Sales Partners,” said Mike McKenney, VP, Partner Sales & Business Development, for Intelisys. “We share this honor with them, and thank them for their incredible drive, hard work and commitment – to Intelisys, to MegaPath, and to finding the best solutions for their customers’ needs.”

MegaPath’s annual awards highlight the growth and success of its channel partners in selling the company’s services to businesses of all sizes across the United States. Intelisys makes no direct sales, instead selling through its 1700 Sales Partners, exclusively. 

“MegaPath’s partners are critical to our success and we are proud to acknowledge our top performers for their outstanding achievements,” said Kurt Hoffman, President and Chief Executive, Cloud Services, MegaPath. “The 2014 winners represent the best in the industry, and we are honored that they entrust MegaPath to serve the business needs of their clientele. We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with Intelisys this year.”



Intelisys Launches Cloud Computing Solutions Professional Certification Program

 Intelisys Cloud Services University Releases New Certification Track at Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2015

Intelisys, the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor and creator of the only Cloud university built exclusively for Channel sales professionals, has released the second certification track from Intelisys Cloud Services University (iCSU), available from on Monday, March 16, 2015. 

Timed to launch during Channel Partners Conference & Expo, the iCSU Cloud Computing Solutions Professional Certification Track will dive deeply into the Cloud technologies that are driving phenomenal growth within the Channel. 

Since iCSU launched its first certification track for Telecom Solutions Professionals on February 16, 2015, more than 300 Channel sales professionals have registered for the course, with many of them already achieving that first certification. 

The Cloud Computing Solutions Professional Certification is the natural progression, given the intense interest but common misconceptions around Cloud, in particular how to identify prospects, move them through the pipeline and close deals.

“This certification is the first of its kind,” commented Andrew Pryfogle, Senior Vice President, Cloud Transformation, for Intelisys. “The feedback we’ve been getting since launching Cloud Services University has been incredible. It’s inspiring new ideas and transformation among our Sales Partners, and I know I speak for everyone at Intelisys when I say I can’t wait to see what our Partners do with this latest certification track. Cloud is booming, and we want to enable our Sales Partners to engage successfully.” 

Understanding the Cloud from every key angle is the focus of the certification course, which will cover Virtualization strategies, Big Data, Application Management, Desktop-as-a-Service, Data Migration strategies, and Cloud Storage architectures. Participants will learn about the different types of Cloud silos available, and what workloads make sense where, gaining the knowledge they need to be the voice of clarity for their customers. 

“Knowing telco agents and VARs were on an accelerating path of convergence, I was looking to adapt and understand how we could take advantage of this unstoppable shift in the marketplace,” said Gary Keswick, President, Communications Management Group, about the training. “Intelisys Cloud Services University has provided a fast track educational process, helping us understand how we could recreate our agency and ultimately build a consulting practice around Cloud services and substantial contracted revenue we were previously not able to introduce, implement and support for our current and future customers.” 

As part of iCSU, the Cloud Computing Solutions Professional Certification Track is self-paced and currently complementary to all IT and telecom professionals. Over the course of 2015, additional certification tracks will be released, including Advanced Data Networking Solutions Professional, UCaaS Solutions, Network & Data Security, and Advanced IT Management.

“I am most of all excited to have completed the Telecom Professional Certification Track,” said Brian Pinnock, Senior Technology Advisor for Intelligent Building Technologies, LLC. “As someone who is not originally from the telecom industry, this training has really given me the confidence to talk about the services that we offer. I have already set up some calls with some of my customers I was reluctant to speak with before because of my lack of knowledge, to talk about how we can be of value to their business.”

By earning an iCSU Certification in one or all of the six competencies, Channel professionals will be better positioned to demonstrate an understanding of the latest Cloud technologies; instill confidence in their clients who will be more trusting with their key Cloud initiatives; achieve a greater degree of success in closing Cloud deals; and gain recognition and a distinct edge in the competitive Cloud services market.
