Internap Partner News
Welcome to the October edition of our monthly Internap Partner Newsletter “Channeling Success”!
Hello Performance Partners!
October has been busy for Internap’s Performance Partner Program. We started this month by sitting down with MicroCorp at their offices in Atlanta for the Internap Cloud and Managed Hosting Training & Certification event. With everyone from senior leadership to back office personnel in attendance and actively participating, it was a great response from the entire MicroCorp team. MicroCorp did not stop there—their annual One-on-One was this past Sunday and Monday in Atlanta! It was fantastic event and our Channel Team had the opportunity to speak with many outstanding MicroCorp subs. It was rewarding to see how well the Internap story is resonating with them.
Meanwhile, out in California Intelisys continues to roll out the red carpet for their annual event, Channel Connect. I can report that both of our Channel Sales Directors Mike and Colm came away impressed by both the organization (as always), but even more so by the quality of their sub-agents that were in attendance in Napa. We look forward to returning again in 2015.
And there’s more good news to share!
First, I’m thrilled to announce the addition of Pete Bell to our senior leadership team as SVP of Global Sales. Pete comes to Internap with years of IT Infrastructure experience and almost as equally important significant Channel experience. We are excited to have Pete leading all of our sales teams and I know his addition is only going to further our success here in the Internap Channel.
Second, WE HAVE A NEW PORTAL! We’ve totally revamped the Performance Partner portal to improve the look and feel and make it easier to navigate and use. Sign up today if you haven’t already so you can use all of our selling tools and marketing collateral, view training videos and register and search for deals. Let us know what you think: Internap Performance Partner Portal (http://partners.internap.com).
Finally, as we mentioned in the newsletter, we are bringing BACK the Internap Channel Promo for November. Be on the lookout for details in your inbox after the start of the month. Hint: you’re going to have options to make it work best for you!
