They are the products and services that can take a partner’s business to new heights.
In March, thanks in part to a flurry of announcements at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, a bunch of new offerings hit the market.
What follows is a sampling not only of brand-new services, but some existing services that are new to the channel; and others that aren’t for partners to sell, but can make their own businesses run better.
There are way too many to describe in a single slide show, so we’ve identified some of the most significant from some of the biggest players in the telecom and IT indirect sales channels.
Here you will find services from AT&T, ShoreTel, NTT America, Telarus and more.
Looking for more new products and services? Check out our recap from last month.
