Unified communications provider CallTower Inc. says it has improved its channel partner program, offering better revenue sharing according to a new tier structure.
VARs and other partners now earn recurring monthly revenue on closed deals for the life of the contracts, CallTower said. There are three tiers: Partner, Premier and Gold. The Partner level nets 15 percent revenue share; Premier gets 18 percent; and Gold earns 23 percent. CallTower does installation and maintenance, and provides around-the-clock customer support. The upgraded program is available now to resellers and consultants in North America.
