Channel Partners Account for Consistent 20 Percent Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth
DALLAS – July 23, 2013 – Masergy Communications Inc., a global leader in managed networking services and cloud communications, today announced that it has grown its Global Partner Program, with 20 percent year-over-year revenue growth, and has expanded the number of FY 2014 Platinum and Gold Level program members - doubling Platinum partners over last year.
Masergy’s Global Partner Program includes more than 100 IT solution providers from around the world. The Platinum and Gold partner status for fiscal year 2014 is based on sales performance in fiscal year 2013 which ended June 30, 2013.
Also announced today in a separate press release, Avant Communications has become Masergy’s top Platinum channel partner for the third consecutive year, crossing the $1 million mark in monthly revenue during Masergy’s 2013 fiscal year.
"Our channel partners play a significant role in our new business development and consistently have been contributing over 20 percent year-over-year revenue growth—and last fiscal year was no exception," said John Dumbleton, senior vice president of business development for Masergy. "Our focus is to grow wallet share with our strategic base of Platinum and Gold partners and move more of our Certified partners into the Gold and Platinum partner level tiers."
“Our partners continue to prefer working with us not only for our superior technology and solutions but also our unique commitment to customer service, recently validated with our industry leading Net Promoter Score far exceeding the technology industry benchmark,” continued Dumbleton.
Masergy works in close collaboration with its Platinum and Gold partners to develop strategies for joint-marketing initiatives and revenue growth opportunities. Along with booking bonuses and supplementary co-marketing funds, Platinum and Gold partners are eligible to receive special services such as participation in Masergy's Partner Advisory Board, co-branded collateral, as well as joint participation in and sponsorship of special programs and events.
