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.
“When I speak with principals and every word is ‘I, I, I’ I know that’s a company headed in the wrong direction."
Mache stressed the importance of building a strong, reliable team. He also advised managers to take the emotion out of the equation. The focus needs to be in building the best team possible, keeping that team running at optimal level, and making sure they know you appreciate what they’re doing.

I’d also like to extend a BIG thank you to our Intelisys team for the months of hard work that went into pulling off such a massive event. Thanks to their dedication and attention to detail, everyone who attended had a wonderful experience.
For those who were unable to join us, we enjoyed three fun-filled days and nights of learning and networking. Thursday morning and afternoon were filled with informative Supplier Presentations, and the evening featured a Business Fair where partners perused info tables. Friday offered excursions to wine country, Alcatraz, Muir Woods, or Presidio Golf Course.We culminated the event with an awards banquet followed by dancing to live music.
