Cloud computing provider iCore is teaming up with master agency Intelisys.
The deal has iCore branching out from its legacy direct sales strategy and into the indirect world. iCore said more partner organizations are interested in adding its products.
"We expect to on-board several other master agencies within the next three months," a spokeswoman told Channel Partners.
As such, iCore is hiring dedicated channel managers across the country and providing partner sales support with tools including webinars.
iCore's products include Microsoft Exchange and Lync, virtual desktops, HD video, unified messaging and more. For Intelisys, adding iCore's capabilities comes at the right time.
“With hundreds of VARs joining our ranks in the coming months, iCore is perfectly positioned to help us scale to meet the demand," said Andrew Pryfogle, senior vice president and general manager of cloud services and complex bids for Intelisys.
