MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Intermedia, a one-stop shop for cloud IT services, announced today it has been featured in The Channel Company's prestigious CRN® 2015 Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide (PPG), which recognizes the service providers and technology vendors whose proven offerings provide the secure network connectivity solutions required by today's digital marketplace. Critical partnerships between IT solution providers and the telecom industry's master agents, voice and ISPs are needed now more than ever as customers demand a single provider for their voice, data and Internet needs. The leading companies recognized in this list are building the bridges to facilitate IT-telecom convergence and bringing together the many moving parts involved.
As companies look to consolidate their voice, data and network services under one provider, Intermedia offers the essential IT services needed to do business in a single, tightly-integrated platform.
Intermedia's Office in the Cloud™ integrates core Unified Communications functionality (messaging, telephony, presence, and email) with data services (file sync and share, email archiving, Outlook backup, identity and access management) and even infrastructure services such as SIP Trunking and Cloud Server. With Intermedia's HostPilot® Control Panel, partners and administrators can easily provision and manage users and services through a central management portal.
"The channel is core to our business," said Curt Mark, Vice President of Channel Sales at Intermedia. "We take great pride in delivering a comprehensive suite of highly-customized services to our partners that are backed by powerful management tools, 24/7 support and five nines reliability. We're honored to be listed as a top vendor in this year's Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide. This recognition serves as further validation of our channel-first approach to business."
"As network solution providers continue to expand their offerings to include cloud and connectivity services, telecom agents and ISPs are focusing their efforts on finding new customers in the IT channel," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "As a result, the IT industry is continuing to converge and once-dissimilar types of solution and service providers are becoming more synergistic to meet customer demand. The CRN Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide facilitates this new provider ecosystem by connecting like-minded organizations in order to establish relationships and partner services that can address customer needs."
The Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide will be featured in the August issue of CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, and will be available online at www.crn.com.
