New Avaya Edge Partner Program Expands Rewards, Streamlines Requirements, Aligns to the Digital Business Imperatives
Santa Clara, Calif. - Nov. 1, 2016 - Avaya today announced a new streamlined channel program that better equips partners to thrive in a software and services industry and provides greater rewards for demonstrating customer centricity by delivering exceptional value. This new program—Avaya EdgeSM— will help drive mutual profitability and help ensure partners possess the expertise required to provide the transformative solutions customers need in the digital marketplace.
Key elements of the program include:
The new program is in effect as of October 1, 2016. To support the transition, existing authorized partners are evaluated under both the previous and new programs and awarded at the higher level for the first six months.
“The strength of a channel program is the degree to which it enables the success of its partners, recognizes and applauds their unique capabilities as they apply them to serve our customers. This means the program needs the flexibility within a supportive structure that reduces requirements to only those that are most essential. I believe the new Avaya Edge program accomplishes this and enables our channel partners to capture share through the transition of the market and Avaya.”
Steve Biondi, Vice President and Global Channel Chief, Avaya
"Like many organizations today operating in a rapidly evolving environment, Avaya is updating its channel partner program to one that is more in line with the world of software and services. The company has worked diligently with key partners, including the Avaya Partner Community Council, to ensure partners are kept abreast of the plan as it develops and have the opportunity for feedback. This open communication has been important to ensuring the new "Edge" program is a change for the better and its success. Telanet and PCC Americas are glad to have been part of this process.”
Dan Silverman, Chairman, PCC Americas and President,Telanet Canada Inc.
“The new Avaya Edge program enables partners to differentiate across the channel community based on the individual partner’s strengths and capabilities, and thus enhancing the channel’s value."
John Lyons, president and CEO, Enterprise, ConvergeOne
“The communications industry has moved towards a software-based approach and away from bespoke PBXs. Vendors that utilize channels as a primary route to market need to focus on helping their partners to reinvent themselves to meet their customers’ needs. Avaya’s new Edge program is an example of a vendor that is re-orienting its partners by monitoring how the industry is transforming, responding to customer feedback, and evolving their programs accordingly. Consequently, this approach enhances Avaya’s partners’ ability to compete and differentiate in the marketplace.”
