San Ramon, CA, August 12, 2011 – Intelisys and the Cloud Services Coalition (CSC) today announced their decision to partner as Intelisys unveils its Cloud Services strategy. Intelisys provides a broad spectrum of telecom solutions through a nationwide network of top-producing independent sales agents. These agents have been awaiting a Cloud Solution to take to the marketplace and with the CSC, they now have access to experts in the Cloud Services arena at the beginning of the sales process all the way through implementation.
Cloud solutions often require deep technical knowledge and a consultative approach to uncover the potentially complex requirements of a business. The CSC is purpose-built to engage with agents and prospects early on in the sales process and to perform all the heavy lifting, including fully project-managed implementations, across a national footprint. Through the CSC, Intelisys will have access to a range of Cloud Solutions with business specific applications that address the needs of the SMB market. This opens up significant opportunities for Intelisys. The agents will also be fully supported by senior sales engineers and technical experts from the CSC, allowing them to engage with more prospects and build a recurring revenue stream more quickly.
“The CSC is thrilled with this new partnership. Intelisys is the undisputed leader in the Master Agent community and the model most others aim to emulate,” said Andrew Pryfogle, President & CEO of Terrapin Solutions and co-founder of the CSC. “Intelisys agents are the best and brightest in the industry and together we are now in a position to fully capitalize on the burgeoning Cloud opportunity.”
“CSC provides a layer of support and expertise to our Sales Partners and brings selling to the next level,” said Mike McKenney, VP, Partner Sales and Business Development. “CSC doesn’t just provide a product to our sales partners. Their strategy is to assist them in recommending sound business solutions for their customers that will ultimately establish them as experts in their field,” he added.
A Cloud solution can have many moving parts, but with the Cloud Services Coalition supplying their extensive knowledge and experience, Intelisys agents can be confident that they are approaching businesses with the leading Cloud offerings and the expertise required to be successful.
