PHOENIX, AZ, November 5, 2007 - PHONE+ magazine, a monthly publication of Virgo Publishing LLC for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, is pleased to announce that ShoreTel, Inc. has been selected as one of its Top 50 Channel Programs. The results of this contest are published in the magazine's first-ever Channel Program Guide special issue, available now at www.phoneplusmag.com/ebooks.
PHONE+ is very proud to honor ShoreTel and the Top 50 Channel Program winners. ShoreTel was selected among hundreds of companies that submitted their channel program details in hopes of being recognized as a Top 50 Channel Program. Voted on by indirect sales partners, the winners represent communications suppliers -- carriers, resellers, master agents and manufacturers - who provide their agents with that extra something -- extra attention, rapid quotes, sales training or special promotions -- that makes agents want to do business with them.
"PHONE+ is honored to bestow special recognition upon these standouts. Their support for the indirect channel, and gains in the telecom industry overall, are much appreciated and lauded," said Mike Saxby, group publisher for PHONE+.
In addition to recognizing the Top 50 Channel Programs, the PHONE+ Channel Program Guide special issue features the Top 15 Channel Managers and includes articles that focus on the key traits of a successful channel program and master agency, how to sustain a healthy partner relationship, and the anatomy of an agent agreement.
