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.
“For more than a decade, I’ve admired the almost fanatical devotion that Subsidium Technologies places on helping, assisting and supporting their loyal clients,” said Intelisys Co-founder Rick Dellar. “Today we couldn’t be more excited for the Subsidium team.

Subsidium Technologies has become Intelisys’ fourth partner to achieve Platinum Status, with the achievement attaining $1 million in recurring monthly billings. Congrats go out to the entire Subsidium Technologies team for hitting this milestone!

Andrew Pryfogle, Senior Vice President of Cloud Transformation at Intelisys, commented on this merger for CRN this week:
"TW Telecom has made a big investment in the intelligence of their network to do bandwidth on-demand and to ratchet up bandwidth very, very quickly in order to meet the demand of cloud applications. They have really taken a significant position in being a cloud enabler," Pryfogle said."If you combine that with what Level 3 is doing around their interconnections with Amazon Web Services and others, I think it’s a really good complement."
We’re pleased to announce that another one of our Sales Partners, LanYap Networks, has achieved Platinum Status by reaching the $1 million milestone in monthly billings.
“We are thrilled to welcome LanYap Networks to Platinum Status,” said Intelisys Co-founder Rick Dellar. “The dedication of their team to achieving this milestone is admirable, and it proves that the relationship between a Master Agency and its partners truly does benefit everyone.”

To be more accurate, this is a glimpse into the conversation on Cloud or, as we like to call it, the "conversation on convergence."
We wrapped up our second CLOUD LIVE! event of 2014 yesterday at the Petaluma studios. We had a great time doing it and wanted to say "thank you" to everyone involved in the setup, the panel conversations, as well as everyone who took time out of their schedules to join us. The next event is coming up quickly — our second Polycom Cloud Services University — and we’re hoping you’ll all be able to join us again!
For now, have a look at some of the inner workings of CLOUD LIVE!

The MyIntelisys dashboard was initially rolled out to Diamond Level Suppliers late last year. This upgraded release is now providing all MyIntelisys users — including Suppliers — with a new set of enhanced tools within the dashboard. Specifically, this upgrade includes additional views and access to key and valuable information and statistics beneficial to Channel Managers and marketing teams of the Suppliers.
“I recently ran an experiment and logged into our order tracking and commission system the old way. It took 45 minutes to find 70% of the information easily and readily available on MyIntelisys,” said Dana Topping, Co-Owner of Intelisys and creator of MyIntelisys. “No one is going to take the time to do that. But when the information is at your fingertips, you are going to use it and it does become priceless.”

The announcement was made today at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo that Intelisys hit the $2 million mark in loans to its Sales Partners through the Intelisys Partner Investment Program.
The Partner Investment Program was launched in the fall of 2010 and was designed to make working capital available to qualified Sales Partners for business expansion and client growth. The $1 million mark for the program was achieved two years ago in 2012. This new $2 million milestone today highlights the success and value the Partner Investment Program has had—and continues to have—among the Intelisys Partner community.
