Santa Clara, Calif. – September 20, 2018 – Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Avaya in its 2018 Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.
The CRN 2018 Cloud Partner Program Guide serves as a valuable resource for solution providers navigating the growing cloud marketplace, assisting them in finding technology suppliers with ground-breaking cloud offerings and partner programs. To meet the requirements for inclusion in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, tech vendors must have unique partner program benefits that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.
“With so many options available in the cloud marketplace today, solution providers often have a difficult time deciding which vendors offer the best program to complement their business strategy,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of the Channel Company. “The CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide helps to simplify the process by researching and identifying the cloud partner programs with the most comprehensive combination of resources, support, training, and financial incentives. Our 2018 guide includes a strong combination of innovative companies who support their partners needs and help them to succeed.”
Avaya Edge is an innovative channel program built on Avaya solutions and partner’s expertise with accelerated rewards and benefits. The program offers partners the flexibility to choose their level of participation and achievement of competencies. For Avaya's fiscal year 2018, the Avaya Edge program was enhanced to provide an opportunity for partners to differentiate themselves for excellence in Avaya Cloud, provide a bridge for partners transitioning to Cloud and expand the opportunity for more partners to receive benefits.
“It is an honor for Avaya to be listed in the CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide for our commitment to helping our partners, because we know it’s the best way to serve our customers,” said Tom Phillips, vice president, cloud channel sales, Avaya. “We are dedicated to helping our partners and continue to enhance our team and customer engagement solutions both in the enterprise and midmarket segments, as well as cloud-based and subscription services through our Avaya Edge program. Our partners are critical to Avaya and our customers’ success and we continue to invest in our partner community.”
“Many channels struggle with the transition from predominantly on-premises sales to hybrid and cloud sales,” says Robin Gareiss, president of Nemertes Research. “Avaya Edge provides a feature-rich, yet not too complex, program for channels that encourages cloud sales with an impressive incentive program and tiers to reward success.”
The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/cloud-ppg.
