Fonality Trixbox Pro Channel Program Named To Top 50 by PHONE+
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PHONE+ magazine, a resource for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, announced that Fonality has been selected as a Top 50 Channel Program. The results of this contest will be published in the magazine's 2008 Channel Program Guide special issue, due out Oct. 15.
PHONE+ is very proud to honor Fonality and the Top 50 Channel Program winners. Fonality was selected from hundreds of companies who submitted their channel program details in hopes of being recognized as a Top 50 Channel Program. Voted on by more than 1,000 indirect sales partners, the winners represent communications suppliers -- carriers, resellers, master agents and manufacturers – who provide their agents with that extra something -- extra attention, rapid quotes, sales training or special promotions -- that makes agents want to do business with them.
"PHONE+ is honored recognize these standouts. Their support for the indirect channel in the telecom industry are much appreciated and lauded," said Mike Saxby, group publisher for PHONE+.
"Fonality is very proud to get this award only one year after launching the trixbox Pro channel program," said Chris Vuillaume, Fonality vice president of business development and channels. "We will continue to grow our channel, and continue to improve our program and product."
This week in Los Angeles, Fonality is hosting the first trixbox Advisory Panel (TAP). The event is an opportunity for a group of Fonality's trixbox channel partners to meet with the company to learn about the product roadmap. It gives Fonality the chance to get direct reseller feedback on both the product and its related channel programs. The goal is to understand what is working and where changes are required, so that the program continues to grow and channel partners are maximizing the revenue potential that trixbox represents.
