Telarus, TCG, WTG, Carrier Source, Telephony Partners and X4 all have adopted the new terms as well, allowing them to sell voice, data, cloud and managed IT services nationwide. Last September, EarthLink Business rolled out updated agent agreements that integrated contracts from its acquisitions of New Edge Networks, Deltacom, One Communications and STS Telecom. The individual companies only let partners sell specific products in a specific area.
For Sandler Partners, signing the consolidated agreement is a big deal.
“The partnership between EarthLink and Sandler Partners benefits the agent community at large, as EarthLink’s network expansions via its acquisitions mirror our own northeastern and southeastern expansions and our new regional headquarters in Atlanta and Dallas/Ft. Worth,” said Alan Sandler, managing partner for Sandler Partners. This mutually beneficial new contract is a win for both Sandler and EarthLink, giving our subagents confidence in commission protection that will help us substantially grow our relationship.”
That’s key, since Sandler Partners boasts the largest base of EarthLink Business customers, according to EarthLink Business.
Sandler Partners was a top-performer selling our nationwide MPLS offering with one of our legacy companies,” said J.R. Cook, vice president of channel partners for EarthLink Business. “Our ability to now offer access to a nationwide IP voice and hosted solution across that same private secure network represents a huge potential to this already successful partnership.”
Sandler Partners was founded in 2003.
