What additional opportunities do you see for resellers who want to use your products?
As part of the program, partners receive significant discounts for Pacnet services they use for their business, and this is on top of trailing commissions. In addition, partners have access to the marketing development fund, which is unique in the way it contributes funds and resources to the partner to launch revenue generating marketing campaigns to bring hot leads to the channel partners. Marketing activities include direct mail, lead generation, search engine, brochures, billboards and more.
What are some of the challenges they should be aware of?
As customers run increased content and applications over their networks, the quality of a businesses infrastructure is vital to ensure it will cope with growing demands of traffic over the network. Low-end or consumer-grade connections will not support many of the business applications that are latency sensitive or does not provide classes of service to priorities business critical applications. Channel partners need to be able to partner with a service provider who specialises in the area of business grade networks. Pacnet understands this growing trend and specialises in delivering business-grade networks for customers to gain maximum efficiency. Pacnet has a long standing history of working with partners to create tailored data and voice solutions to provide business grade solutions that are customisable as technology demands grow.
What are some of the key focuses for your company over the next year?
