PHONE+ announces the launch of its new Partner Portal, CSP Network, on the Web at www.csp-network.com.
CSP Network is a comprehensive resource created especially for converged solutions providers agents, VARs and VADs, systems integrators, interconnects, aggregators, consultants, independent sales representatives and other business partners that offer indirect sales distribution for telecom and datacom products and services suppliers.
Channel partners face different challenges and requirements than even a few years ago, says PHONE+ Group Publisher Mike Saxby. They are under increasing pressure to deliver end-to-end solutions as technology converges and as end users demand simplicity in managing their communications infrastructure.
Partners sales organizations are on notice that they have to expand their product portfolios and skill sets to become converged solutions providers. Thats what CSP Network is all about helping them with that transformation.
CSP Network offers converged solutions providers a single repository for information on technologies, vendor products and promotions, channel programs, sales techniques and business-building strategies. Membership is free and includes:
Unlimited password-protected access for one year
Weekly CSP Network News e-mail newsletter
Complimentary subscription to PHONE+
The portal is more than an online magazine, says Saxby. It provides a gateway to training and educational programs as well as a forum for the converged solutions provider community.
Expertly-sourced content will provide a platform for a community of converged solutions providers. Members have the opportunity to comment on posted news, establishing a dialog with other readers. Plus, topical Webinars, held periodically, present added occasions to interact with trusted advisers, vendors and peers.
The Web site also is a link to The Channel Partners Conference & Expo, the premier networking event for indirect sales organizations held twice yearly and sponsored by PHONE+ and CSP Network.
In addition, Converged Solutions Provider Certification training is a key component of the CSP Network value proposition. For details, visit www.cspcertified.com.
