PlanetOne Celebrates Partner Success; Launches Cloud 411 Partner Program

End of year Telecom Tour events honor partner growth and preview 2016 goals, initiatives and programs

PlanetOne Communications, the IT and telecom industry’s preferred cloud and connectivity partner, is pleased to announce 2015 as a banner year for the company and its channel partners. Founder and CEO Ted Schuman reports year-over-year growth is set to exceed 30% as partner engagement and satisfaction ratings from the company’s annual survey show record high returns on investments and relationships.

“Our expansion into the MSP and IT channel community and continued advocacy and enablement around convergence and cloud drove success and partner satisfaction to new highs in 2015,” says Schuman. “Distinguished honors from our vendor and partner community, as well as local and national press are raising our visibility within the IT and Telecom channels and giving way to new relationships. On top of that, our commitment to exceptional service and business execution remain clear differentiators for PlanetOne and have increased our partner loyalty year-over-year.”

Fueling PlanetOne’s success is the addition of several new vendors including Corvisa, IntelePeer, Lightower, NTT America, Nuvestack and Rackspace, and expanded relationships with its more than 250 Preferred Vendors. Additionally, PlanetOne welcomed hundreds of the telecom and IT channel’s top connectivity executives and service providers to its multi-city 2015 Telecom Tour and closed out the year strong with the introduction of its Cloud 411program. Available exclusively to PlanetOne channel partners, the new Cloud 411 online education center and resource tool is a one-stop for all things cloud.

“We worked with our top cloud providers to create a central, online location to host the most recent and relevant cloud sales tools, training decks, presentations and data sheets,” says Lauren Shapiro, President, PlanetOne. “Cloud 411 is a valuable resource that empowers PlanetOne channel partners with the knowledge they need before, during and after the sale to create and capture more cloud services business. It’s also an easy way for our vendor partners to share with channel partners what’s driving demand for cloud services and how best to capitalize on it.”

“It’s been a great year for PlanetOne and our partners,” closes Schuman. “Thank you to our award-winning associates, vendors and channel partners for making this year so memorable and cheers to even greater success together in 2016.”
