Channel: Can I Get Some Credit?

For the most part, solution providers are reporting business as usual in light of the economic crises plaguing America these past few months. However, stories are beginning to surface about credit lines getting yanked and therefore killing financing for a deal.

Not only might spending begin to change, partners also can expect a change in buying behavior. As PHONE+ reported earlier this year, the economic downturn, along with ecofriendly trends and concerns, were causing more businesses to seek out teleconferencing solutions and telecom expense management platforms. An uptick in desire for managed services is also a common theme in this sloppy economy.

It’s no doubt that service providers, distributors, members of the indirect channel and even customers are lying in wait to see what the economy rollercoaster has in store. Is the credit crunch going to throw the telecom channel for a loop?
