Fusion’s recent acquisition of Broadvox's cloud services business, and subsequent integration into NBS, has created additional sales and revenue opportunities for both companies’ partners. Combining the two partner programs adds more services, additional compensation options and opportunities for evergreen commissions, as well as expanded SPIFFs and promotions, NBS said.
The combined program consists of VARs, telecom resellers, interconnects and consultants, as well as master agents, systems integrators, MSPs and independent IT professionals on a nationwide basis.
"With this acquisition, a new leader in the cloud solutions provider arena was born: a better, more flexible organization with a stronger financial position and larger customer base," said Russell Markman, NBS EVP of business services.
“The NBS and Broadvox partner bases were very complementary in their geographic reach and customer bases," said Arnaud Gautier, NBS SVP of marketing and product. "Together we are bringing to the channel a unique and rich network and cloud connectivity product set, from simple DIA to complex MPLS network solutions. And that translates into expanded sales opportunities and earnings potential for our partners."
