PlanetOne Awarded Symbol of Excellence for the Third Year in a Row
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–July 30, 2014–Scottsdale-based master agency PlanetOne has announced that it has attained Platinum status in Masergy’s distinguished Global Partner Program for the third consecutive year, after seeing double-digit sales growth.
“We are honored to be recognized by Masergy for the hard work that our sales partners have put in over the last year, working with clients to transform their businesses for the era of managed networking and cloud services,” said PlanetOne president Lauren Shapiro. “Our partners are trusted advisors, providing the best products, services and support as clients look to make the right investments to grow their businesses–Masergy’s impressive portfolio and stellar customer experience have been critical to our success in achieving that.”
As a global leader in managed networking services and cloud communications, Masergy awarded Platinum partner status based on a partner’s sales performance in fiscal year 2014, which ended June 30, 2014. Platinum partners are eligible to receive special benefits such as participation in Masergy’s Partner Advisory Board, co-branded collateral, as well as participation in and sponsorship of joint programs and events.
“Fiscal year 2014 has been a great year for Masergy’s partner program,” said Chuck Ward, vice president of the global channel at Masergy. “With our expanded portfolio, including security as a service and global UCaaS, complementing our managed cloud network solutions, fiscal year 2015 should be the most exciting year yet for Masergy and our partners.”
PlanetOne’s Platinum achievement with Masergy for the third year in a row reflects a growing demand for cloud-based and managed services across all customer tiers. From large, multi-location enterprises to small and midsized businesses, the rapid adoption of next-generation services is accelerating as companies look to eliminate up-front costs and the additional ongoing maintenance costs associated with on-premise solutions.
“We are thrilled to be named a Masergy Platinum partner again,” said Ted Schuman, CEO at PlanetOne. “Our success as a top sales partner for Masergy demonstrates our commitment to giving our partners the best tools and offerings that we can, to help them make the most of their existing and new opportunities as the cloud continues to revolutionize the communications landscape.”
