These are Suppliers who Intelisys has not done a full launch with. There are three primary reasons that a supplier would be in this group.
Assigned Contract: In the circumstance where the relationship with that supplier was initially forged with another agent and Intelisys subsequently purchased their contracts, thereby giving us access to the portfolio. If we did not negotiate the agreement, we will not do a full launch without ensuring that the agreement meets our contractual requirements. Given proven performance and Sales Partner interest, we will ensure that the contract meets our standards and move these suppliers to a full launch.
Specific Opportunity: We brought the supplier into the portfolio for a specific opportunity, we generally feel that the partnership has potential, but wish to see the supplier prove their ability to perform and generate a ground-swell of Sales Partner interest prior to doing a full launch.
Intelisys Business Decision
For these suppliers, we do have an existing contractual relationship with them and processes are in place for commissions to be paid. These Suppliers will work diligently to earn your business and provide a good partner and customer experience.
Intelisys is honored to win the Telecom Association’s 2014 Award for Best Overall Master Agency. For the first time in many years, TA restructured how they measured the best Master Agency in the industry. The results were overwhelming. We are honored and humbled and can’t thank our top producing Sales Partners enough, as they truly are the best in the industry. Read the Telecom Association press release below for more information.
“Partner’s Choice” Award Showcases Intelisys’ Ongoing Industry Leadership
Intelisys, a seasoned technology services distributor, won the distinction as the Best Overall Master Agency in the industry as determined by validated 2014 reviews from the 3,800 members of Telecom Association, a professional membership organization of telecom and technology consultants, agents, brokers and sales partners founded in 1996.
Selection as a “Partner’s Choice” Award winner showcases Intelisys’ 20 year commitment to supporting their Sales Partners in growing their businesses and achieving their goals.
“Our association members are heavily experienced technology industry consultants and channel sales partners that have compared all the best and affordable vendors against one another before recommending one or two to their business clients who view them as trusted advisors”, stated Telecom Association’s Executive Director, Dan Baldwin. “They know which vendors to watch out for and which ones to recommend so having them review Intelisys as the ‘Best Overall Master Agency’ means Intelisys is both trusted and proven as the top technology services distributor by their Sales Partners, the top producers in the industry.”
It’s not by chance that Intelisys won this category in 2014. While business end users are exacting in their technology solution requirements, the independent Sales Partners, and reviewing members of Telecom Association, are even more so.
“For 20 years, Intelisys has focused exclusively on the nation’s top producing Sales Partners,” said Andrew Pryfogle, Intelisys’ Senior Vice President of Cloud Transformation. “The ‘best of the best’ are extremely demanding, so we’re constantly evolving with new programs and processes to meet and exceed their demands, whether through our diverse supplier portfolio, our presales engineering, our Cloud Services University, or by building the largest and most responsive back office in the industry. We are deeply humbled and grateful to win this award, and sincerely thank our Sales Partners for honoring us with this award.”
Pompei Joins Fast Growing Technology Services Distributor After 14-Year Partnership
Intelisys has added Stacey Pompei to its executive management team as Vice President of Supplier Management and General Counsel.
Ms. Pompei joins Intelisys from a private legal practice and will report directly to Carol Beering, Senior Vice President of Sales Operations.
Pompei is a corporate attorney and has provided legal and business consulting services to start-up and established companies in the finance, internet, software and telecommunication industries for more than 20 years. She has worked with Intelisys and other businesses in the Channel for the past 14 years.
“After serving as a business partner to Intelisys for many years, I am delighted to join the team full-time to support our Sales Partners in all aspects of their business growth,” Pompei said. “Intelisys has built a solid reputation with its Sales Partners and Supplier Partners as a successful and trusted company and I can’t wait to help the entire company continue growing at unprecedented rates.”
Pompei likes to think of herself as an attorney with the mindset of a business person. Her specialties include contract review, drafting and negotiation; corporate books and record keeping; trademark applications; litigation management.
Stacey was the natural choice to fill this new role at Intelisys because she understands our business and has played a role in our success for many years,” said Carol Beering, Senior Vice President, Sales Operations. “Her legal and business expertise will be a huge benefit to our Sales Partners and help our community raise the standard of how business telecommunications services are bought and sold in the Channel.”
“Stacey has been an integral part in helping Intelisys approach the $100M milestone, whether through providing legal and business services, strengthening relationships with our Supplier Partners and Sales Partners, or by being a key sounding board for our management team over the years,” said Intelisys Co-Founder Rick Dellar. “Stacey will have an immediate impact and I couldn’t be more excited to have her on board. This is a huge win for our Sales Partner community.”

Join the conversation with four of the Smartest Guys in the Cloud as they discuss game-changing insights that will help you win more deals.

Panel 2 – Winning by Solving Problems
Sales Partners who are consistently winning in the cloud are realizing their strength is in solving problems. Being able to unearth the problem and then effectively quantifying the impact on the business if the problem is solved is key. In this panel we will be presenting several real-life business problems to our expert panelists who will then speak to solutions on the fly that can helps us solve these problems and win deals. (note to suppliers: final problems will be tailored to the strengths of the panelists. Feedback welcome.)
Panel 3 – Cloud, Shock & Awe
The book “The Challenger Sale” suggests giving customers what they ask for is a mistake. Simply providing services they feel they need is short-sighted and doesn’t separate sales people from the masses. The theory is that top performers actually challenge the thinking of customers. They bring compelling thinking and innovation that forces decision makers to look at problems and opportunities differently. In disrupting their thinking, top performers become the go-to experts and separate themselves from the sea of sameness. Hear how you can leverage Cloud to disrupt current thinking and challenge your decision makers to move in new directions. Find out how to present new perspectives that can shock & awe customers into action.
Panel 4 – Real Cloud Wins
Moving beyond theory and into practice, we will be hearing detailed case studies of real cloud wins. Each win will feature the supplier as well as the participating sales partner telling the real life story. The case study will be pre-recorded and produced at the Intelisys studio in Petaluma and will require participants to travel to Petaluma for studio work. The final case study will be aired live during CLOUD LIVE! and will be followed up by several minutes of live recap by Andrew Pryfogle. Suppliers & sales partners participating in this segment will not be required to be in Petaluma on 11/20.
