RYE BROOK, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Broadview Networks, a leading provider of hosted voice, data and cloud computing solutions, has earned a Diamond PARTNER Program Award from Mitel, a global provider of business communications and collaboration software and services. The Diamond Award, an honor given only to Mitel’s top performing partners, recognizes the outstanding business performance and sales success of partner companies throughout the course of the fiscal year.
“It’s an honor to win a 2011 Diamond Award,” said Brian Crotty, Broadview’s chief operating officer. “Our partnership with Mitel allows us to combine their state-of-the-art IP phones with Broadview’s patented OfficeSuite system, providing our customers with unsurpassed flexibility, reliability and value in a cloud-based phone solution.”
OfficeSuite is Broadview’s easy-to-use cloud-based phone solution that provides businesses of any size with an IP-based phone system, unlimited nationwide calling and an intuitive website to manage services. It delivers a complete communication solution, including state-of-the-art IP phones, basic and advanced features and call center applications, all without any capital investment, maintenance contracts or additional IT resources.
“Great partners are the lifeblood of Mitel’s growth,” said Phil Keenan, Mitel’s executive vice president for North America. “For many of our customers, these organizations serve as trusted advisors and partners, helping them to architect how their employees collaborate. We’re proud to recognize Broadview Networks at this year’s Business Partner Conference.”
Because OfficeSuite is used in conjunction with Mitel’s IP phones, the two companies have established a unique program that allows authorized Mitel partners to receive credit from both Mitel and Broadview Networks for OfficeSuite sales. Not only can Mitel partners receive recurring commissions and upfront payments from Broadview, they also receive quota credit under their Mitel contracts when selling OfficeSuite and are able to complete the installations themselves. This double-credit program makes it as easy as possible for value added resellers (VARs) to sell OfficeSuite® while simultaneously fulfilling their Mitel partner commitments.
“We are grateful to have in Mitel a partner that understands the value of OfficeSuite and the impact it can have on customers’ business performance,” said Rob Westervelt, Broadview’s senior vice president of alternate channels. “The Mitel PARTNER program and our Quota Retirement Program provide the support and opportunities necessary to make selling OfficeSuite a successful and rewarding business decision for all parties involved.”
