SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PanTerra Networks Today, TMC announced PanTerra as the winner of the 2022 INTERNET TELEPHONY Friend of the Channel Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
PanTerra Streams offers its own unified cloud service, including business voice, video and collaboration such as team rooms, screen sharing and team conferencing. Because Streams is packaged with the end user in mind, it starts with a feature-focused Basic seat for a mobile small office, a mid-level Professional seat with team collaboration tools, and finally a very broad feature set for a Call Center seat. Channel partners and customers benefit from PanTerra’s comprehensive bidding tool, pre-sale site analysis and unmatched level of support provided by a dedicated team of channel sales, sales engineering and customer service representatives. All of our partner programs include a comprehensive drop-in schedule and after-sales training program. PanTerra supports our channel partners and their customers every step of the way.
We offer four types of affiliate programs:
All programs offer residual commissions and revenue share on equipment.
Master Agent: Master Agents are the most comprehensive type of reseller, they must have an established network business and the ability to manage their own VARs, resellers and agents. They need infrastructure to support and pay their partners. PanTerra bills the customer directly.
Agent: Becoming an agent is the lowest barrier to entry for partners looking to represent PanTerra. The agent finds opportunities and closes sales with the help of PanTerra’s channel staff to grow their books of business. Agents are not required to support, retain, or bill a customer.
Value Added Reseller (VAR): This established partner typically uses its own trucks, support staff, and sales team. This partner educates, closes sales, installs and supports their customers on-site. With this additional requirement for customer care comes greater residual income and bonuses. PanTerra bills the customer, not the VAR.
Wholesale: PanTerra’s Wholesale “white label” program is for large partners who can own and run their entire business of cloud communications services while we manage the technology and network on the back end. Wholesalers have a private branded offering from PanTerra and are responsible for all aspects of the business, including marketing to the customer, quoting, sales, installation, support and billing.
Check out our website to learn more about our affiliate programs. PanTerra pays $500 for qualified partner referrals who sign up to resell our services.
Arthur Chang, president and CEO of PanTerra, was quoted as saying, “PanTerra’s unified cloud collaboration was a huge draw for both partners and customers long before Covid forced many businesses to rethink their communications infrastructure to support remote work. Partner costs are significantly reduced due to low distribution costs, minimum time for equipment deployment and installation, and customer support.” Arthur continued, “Add to that a new business model that rewards the partner with residual payments for the life of the client, and the partner has found a great way to increase their monthly revenue stream that goes beyond simply closing a new client. We offer bonus accelerators and revenue share on long-term contracts on phones that increase our appeal. PanTerra’s solution offers 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 its editors INTERNET TELEPHONY We are honored to recognize PanTerra as a Friend of INTERNET TELEPHONY Award winner for its outstanding program,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “We look forward to seeing continued excellence from PanTerra in the future.”
