SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 7, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PanTerra Networks today announced that TMC extensionnamed PanTerra the winner of the 2022 INTERNET TELEPHONY Friend of the Channel Award, presented by INTERNET PHONE magazine.
PanTerra offers Streams, its unified cloud service that includes business voice, video, and collaboration like meeting rooms, screen sharing, and group conferencing. Because Streams is built with the end user in mind, it starts with a feature-focused Basic workstation for small offices with mobility, a mid-range Professional workstation with team collaboration tools, and eventually builds to a very broad feature set for his Call Center station. Channel partners and customers benefit from PanTerra’s comprehensive quoting tool, presales site analysis, and unmatched level of support provided by a dedicated team of channel sales, sales engineering, and service representatives customers. All of our partner programs include a comprehensive ramp program and after-sales training program. PanTerra supports our channel partners and their customers every step of the way.
We offer four types of partner programs:
All programs offer residual commissions and revenue sharing on the hardware.
Master Agent: Master Agents are the most well-rounded type of reseller, who need to have an established networking business and the ability to manage their own VARs, resellers and agents. They need the infrastructure to support and pay their partners. PanTerra bills the customer directly.
Agent: Becoming an agent is the lowest barrier to entry for partners who want to represent PanTerra. The agent finds opportunities and, with assistance from PanTerra’s channel staff, closes sales to grow their business portfolio. Agents are not required to support, maintain or bill the client.
Value Added Reseller (VAR): This established partner usually uses their own trucks, support staff and sales team. This partner powers, closes sales, installs on-site equipment, and supports their customers. With this added requirement to take care of the customer comes residual income and bigger bonuses. PanTerra bills the customer, not the VAR.
Wholesale: PanTerra’s wholesale “white label” program is for large, established partners who can own and maintain their entire cloud communications services business, while we manage the technology and network on the backend. Wholesalers have a custom branded offering from PanTerra and are responsible for all aspects of the business including marketing, quoting, sales, installation, support and customer billing.
Arthur Chang, President and CEO of PanTerra, said: “PanTerra’s unified cloud collaboration has been a major attraction for both partners and customers long before Covid forced many companies to rethink their communications infrastructure to support work. at a distance. With low deployment overhead, minimal on-site time to deploy and install equipment, and support customers, partner costs are significantly reduced. Arthur continued: “Add to that a new business model that rewards the partner with residual payments for the life of a customer and the partner has found a great way to grow a monthly income stream that goes beyond just closing a new client. We offer bonus accelerators on long-term contracts and revenue sharing on phones that increase our appeal. PanTerra’s solution gives partners and customers peace of mind knowing they are in good hands with a company that understands and delivers the best communications solution in the industry.”
“On behalf of TMC and the publishers of INTERNET PHONE magazine, we are honored to recognize PanTerra as the winner of the INTERNET TELEPHONY Friend of the Channel Award for its distinguished program,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We look forward to seeing PanTerra’s continued excellence in the future” .
