Broadvoice has announced that its its channel sales, from both a volume and revenue standpoint, have grown by more than 200 percent compared to Q1 of 2015.
The company has increased its commitment to the channel over the course of the past year, expanding its partner program significantly and making ongoing investments in the program. As part of that effort, it has launched second-quarter sales incentives for partners selling cloud PBX and SIP trunking.
The latest sales incentives give Broadvoice channel partners the opportunity to earn upfront payments when selling hosted voice services and SIP trunking during the second quarter, on top of their recurring commissions.
Cloud PBX Q2 incentives offer two choices: Partners can make four times the sale’s monthly recurring revenue (MMR), offered as an upfront SPIFF; or, they can choose an upfront payment totaling twice the MRR along with a free lease on an HD voice IP phone for each hosted voice seat—a value of $120 per seat.
For SIP trunking, partners can receive double their MRR on the sale in the form of an upfront SPIFF, on any SIP package. That includes SMB, enterprise, call-center and unlimited packages.
“Our focus is firmly on growing and deepening our relationships with master agencies, mini masters, independent agents and VARs going forward,” said Sam Ghahremanpour, president at Broadvoice. “The Q2 channel incentives build on previous SPIFFs for Q1 sales, which were very well received by our partners, as it benefited both their businesses and their customers. We firmly believe that investment in additional resources, program enhancements and sales incentives is crucial for mutual growth and success as we continue to expand our market presence.”
