PlanetOne Funding Big Cash Giveaways
February 26, 2014 - News

CHANNEL PARTNERSPlanetOne Communications, an Executive Sponsor, has funded a $50,000 cash giveaway to reward partners who sell orders totaling more than $5,000 in monthly revenue.

Separately, PlanetOne said it also is offering $500 prizes during events at this week’s Spring 2014 Channel Partners Conference & Expo.

First, the rewards program and cash giveaway apply to orders submitted for services from PlanetOne’s preferred vendors. Rewards will be given on a sliding scale: the larger the order, the bigger the payout.

“This is a cash bonus program that is exclusively funded by PlanetOne, so these rewards are in addition to the carrier bonus incentives that we’re already offering," said CEO Ted Schuman. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for sales partners to further capitalize on strategic, larger enterprise prospects that can carry their businesses to the next level."

Lauren Shapiro, president of PlanetOne, said the market is ripe for partners pursuing new customer segments.

“We are seeing a big shift in demand for cloud-based services and TDM replacement, in particular," Shapiro said. “In addition to our traditional base of small and medium-sized businesses, larger businesses and enterprises are embracing this technology. Channel partners are well-positioned for that market because of their consultative role as technology advocates. We want to reward them for those efforts and help them build their business for the future."

The giveaway marks the latest in PlanetOne’s ongoing investment in the channel, which includes the recent launch of the Telecom Partner Toolbox.

Meantime, PlanetOne will be offering $500 prizes for a few lucky partners among those attending the company’s Toolbox demonstrations this week. The demos are scheduled for 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 in Sands 301.
