Windstream named Mitel’s Top Channel Partner of the Year


There are awards, and then there are awards.  We’ve just been honored with one of the latter, and we’re incredibly proud of it, because it says a lot about the way we do business.

Mitel has just honored Windstream by naming us as its Top Revenue Channel Partner of the Year, Enterprise Channel Partner of the Year and Service Provider Channel Partner of the Year, in the U.S. As Mitel’s Top Revenue Channel Partner, we were recognized for exemplifying the highest levels of business performance, expertise, sales achievement and customer satisfaction that Mitel seeks in its channel partners.

By partnering with Mitel and offering the full line of its business communications solutions, we’re making it possible for our customers of all sizes to work more efficiently and cost-effectively.  We’re offering them a broad choice of communications products that meet their diverse requirements. For instance, Windstream and Mitel provide businesses the ability to transparently connect through a single network, regardless of where their offices are located.

And over time, we’ve found that Mitel’s fully integrated IP telephony platforms are often a perfect fit, especially when it comes to keeping a geographically-dispersed workforce connected.  They’re highly scalable, secure, easily managed, and optimized to meet the evolving communications needs of our customers.

In other words, as our customers grow across multiple locations, and their needs grow with them, they don’t have to start from scratch; the solutions they already have will scale as they work to retain, attract and connect to their own team members and customers.  You can be in one office, and your co-worker can be thousands of miles away; but to the network, you’re in the same office.  That makes doing business far easier. 

With our consultative approach, we’ve made our partnership with Mitel a key differentiator in how we do business.  We recommend Mitel’s products, because we know they’re flexible enough to meet our customers’ specific needs, and they’re dependable enough to keep meeting them over the long haul. 

So, by honoring us, we believe that Mitel is saying far more than, “you’ve sold a lot of equipment.”  They’re honoring us for working with our customers, going the extra mile in understanding their needs, and in crafting specific solutions that will solve their challenges, and take their businesses to the next level.  That’s the way we think everyone should be doing business these days.
