Cloud services are hitting their stride, and as this once mysterious technology moves mainstream, the number of cloud vendors, services and firms leveraging the cloud is mounting. As the industry bears witness to this maturing market, a few things grow abundantly clear: The cloud isn’t going anywhere, innovation is a bound and sometimes in a competitive space like this you need a little help from your friends.
Today, Fusion announced a newly minted partnership with master agent Telarus (News - Alert) to sell its cloud services. Already a well known cloud services provider, Fusions gains an added boost from the arrangement, as Telarus is a leading value added distributor of cloud, network and UCaaS services.
"Telarus and Fusion share a passion for service excellence and a desire to help our mutual partners and customers grow faster, stronger and smarter," said Matthew Rosen (News - Alert), Fusion's Chief Executive Officer. "Telarus is well known and respected for its innovation in seeking new ways to help its agents succeed and grow. With Fusion's single source solution for the cloud, Telarus partners will be able to offer everything an enterprise needs to successfully migrate to the cloud, and profit from its many benefits," Mr. Rosen continued.
As a master agent, Telarus takes its partnerships quite seriously. It is a top rated resource in helping partners succeed by offering the ability to “See What Others Can’t.” The set of tools provided include Cisco (News - Alert) and Shoretel certified cloud engineers, VXSuite pre-assessments to evaluate network readiness for UC deployment, GeoQuote real-time pricing tools, real-time VoIP pre-assessment as well as monitoring of all circuits sourced through Telarus powered by the VXsuite.
"Telarus places the highest value on team success," said Patrick Oborn, Telarus co-founder. "We're firm in our conviction that individual success is only meaningful when it's shared, and we're committed to helping our partners win every step of the way. Telarus is focused on providing hands-on support from pre-sale to post-sale, helping develop marketing and business development strategies and working in concert with our providers to ensure an exceptional customer experience. That's why we're delighted to partner with Fusion, whose unwavering commitment to delivering the highest level of service is every bit as passionate as our own," Mr. Oborn stated.
Business at its roots is a team game. And in a highly competitive space, it never hurts to get a little help from your friends. Fusion has facilitated growth via partnerships, acquisitions and mergers; Telarus has built a reputation as a top master agent – only time will tell how high the two climb.
