Cloud based WAN as-a-Service Pioneer increases focus on channel sales by partnering with industry-leading technology services distributors and telecom master agents
Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that it has launched its domestic channel partnership program and has signed up Intelisys and Bridgepointe Technologies as the program’s inaugural partners.
Intelisys is the industry-leading Technology Services Distributor of telecommunications network services. Their 2500+ sub-agent community of telecom sales and consulting professionals assists enterprise customers in making informed choices about networking services, technologies, potential cost savings, and how best to align networking technologies with business objectives.
Bridgepointe Technologies’ network of professional agents provide unbiased, vendor-agnostic technology recommendations. Bridgepointe’s agents have an in-depth knowledge of various service provider solutions, and they use that deep knowledge as the foundation that enables them to identify customizable, cost-effective, and business-responsive solutions for their customers.
On the basis of their firsthand experience with customers, sales, and consulting professionals, both Intelisys and Bridgepointe Technologies felt that the market needed a solution that helps enterprises tackle globalization and cloud megatrends. Outdated approaches such as MPLS and CapEx-based WAN Optimization appliances weren’t built for agile businesses and today’s cloud, mobile, and social era. Enterprises are on the lookout for a holistic WAN solution that combines enterprise-grade private connectivity with optimization and application acceleration. Enterprises are also expressing demand for a solution that can be deployed rapidly and is available via an on-demand delivery model.
“As a master agent and technology services broker, we are always on the lookout for partners who understand the evolving market landscape, partners who are constantly innovating with the objective of addressing the most urgent enterprise needs,” said Brian Miller, CEO of Bridgepointe Technologies. “Aryaka’s WAN as-a-Service offers MPLS-grade connectivity over the middle mile combined with a built-in optimization stack. Aryaka has also incorporated additional features into all of its services that other vendors use as upsells, such as visibility into WAN and application traffic and a fully managed service delivery model. These are the vital pieces that only a truly holistic WAN solution can deliver. With this partnership, we will be able to help our clients capitalize on globalization trends and the migration of business applications to the cloud.”
“We have hundreds of customer contracts at Aryaka. Yet the enterprise WAN market is barely penetrated. We notice a growing pain in the market with legacy approaches like MPLS and WAN Optimization appliances. And there are thousands of companies that still depend on the unreliable public Internet for global collaboration,” said Sean Dublin, Director of Channel Sales, Aryaka. “Enterprises can truly benefit from what we’ve done, and we are constantly striving to ensure that they learn there is a better way of tackling today’s IT and hybrid WAN trends.”
As a company, Aryaka has been achieving over 100% YoY growth since its inception. With their Domestic Channel Program, Aryaka aims to grow even faster by turbocharging their sales and marketing efforts and through onboarding technology services brokers, master agents, and other service providers. This partnership gives customers of Intelisys and Bridgepointe Technologies immediate access to a global, private, optimized WAN infrastructure that enables higher productivity and better collaboration without the need to invest in expensive equipment, private links, and additional management overhead.
Founded in December 1994, Intelisys is widely regarded as the industry leading Technology Services Distributor of telecommunications network services in the Channel. The company has built a solid reputation with its Sales Partners, Supplier Partners, and end-user customers as a successful and high integrity company to do business with.
Today, Intelisys is focused on empowering the independent sales channel by assisting business telecom customers in making informed choices about services, technology, and cost savings. Intelisys delivers the best carrier neutral solutions to end-user customers through an elite nationwide network of telecom sales and consulting professionals.
