Thanks to a partnership with industry veteran and collaboration expert Sarah Deatherage, Intelisys aims to boost its agents’ income.
On average, collaboration services represent 2.5 percent of an agents customer base,” Deatherage explained. “At Intelisys, we are on a mission to increase this number to more than 10 percent. In just two months, we have doubled the amount of collaboration services sold compared to historical monthly averages. We have recently renegotiated contracts with our conferencing providers, resulting in the most competitive rates in the industry. The message we want to send is clear: Intelisys is where agents should bring their conferencing and collaboration business.”
Jay Bradley, president of Intelisys, said the partnership with Deatherage means agents will “tap into new revenue streams and more advanced collaboration services.”
The capabilities comes as the Web and video conferencing market is predicted to reach $14 billion by 2017, according to the latest Global Industry Analysts Inc. report. SMBs’ use of mobility is fueling that growth. Intelisys, for its part, wants to make the most of that trend.
We are always looking for unique ways to help our sales partners be more successful, and the collaboration program is one more way we are accomplishing that,” Bradley said.
