PHONE+ magazine, a resource for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, announced that Granite Telecommunications LLC has been selected as a Top 50 Channel Program. Details on this contest, including a list of all 50 winners, are published in the October issue of PHONE+ magazine and in the online Channel Program Guide. The winners also will be recognized at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Washington, D.C., Sept. 20-22.
Granite was selected from among hundreds of companies — carriers, resellers, master agencies and hardware and software vendors — that submitted their channel programs for the 2010 ballot. Winners were determined by the more than 1,500 votes submitted Aug. 10-20 by indirect sales partners.
“PHONE+ is proud to recognize these channel programs for their exceptional service to the channel," said Larry Lannon, group publisher for PHONE+. “These companies set a high standard for others in the indirect channel; how much they’re appreciated is evidenced by the number of partners that turned out to vote for their favorites."
Granite provides POTS, Internet and cabling solutions to multi-location businesses across the U.S. and Canada. The company’s clients benefit from a single point of contact; one consolidated online invoice with management reporting for all locations; Web-based line and feature inventory by location; 24/7 customer service and meaningful savings.
