LOS ANGELES – April 18, 2017 – Channel Partners, a resource for indirect sales channels offering IT and telecom systems and services, is pleased to announce that TPx Communications (formerly TelePacific) has been selected as a winner of the 2017 Channel Partners Choice Awards.
TPx was among only four winners honored during an awards reception on April 13 at the Spring 2017 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.
“This is the first year for Channel Partners Choice awards,” said Lorna Garey, editor in chief of Channel Partners. “We wanted to recognize top channel-focused suppliers, but we didn’t want to simply have a group of editors or analysts making selections. If we were going to add a new award, it had to be driven by the community. We think we achieved that. All Channel Partners Choice winners were nominated by current partners, with no incentive except recognizing excellence in channel programs.”
This all-new award recognizes vendors for innovations in their channel-partner programs. Anyone in the channel community may nominate a vendor partner.
TPx was nominated by Alan Sandler, managing partner at Sandler Partners, for its commitment to ongoing service innovation and operational excellence so critical to partners and their customers. Over the last couple of years, the company has doubled down on delivering managed services, which are in high demand by customers and represent a stickier sale for agent partners. This effort began a couple of years ago when then-TelePacific created high-value solution sets it calls the 3Cs – Connectivity, Cloud and Continuity. Underneath each of these is a deep portfolio of services that its partners can mix and match to create custom solutions for their business customers.
In 2016, TelePacific bolstered these core offers through new investments (e.g., its nationwide SD-WAN pilot), new strategic alliances (e.g.,becoming a Microsoft Cloud Partner) and the acquisition of DSCI Corp. The DSCI deal is particularly compelling because it not only brought managed unified communications and managed IT platforms to the table, it also extended TelePacific’s ability to serve customers from coast to coast as TPx Communications.
