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.

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.”
