FreedomVoice's innovative partner program combines comprehensive sales, marketing and training tools to ensure partners' ongoing success

FreedomVoice, an industry-leading provider of cloud-based communications systems for small to mid-sized businesses nationwide, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

FreedomVoice’s innovative partner program combines comprehensive sales, marketing and training tools all designed to ensure partners’ ongoing success. Channel partners initially participate in an onboarding process that incorporates both technical and sales training. Then, FreedomVoice provides a number of co-marketing programs to help acquire customers. When a partner signs its first client, FreedomVoice engineers guide the partner through a “white glove” installation process, to ensure the process goes smoothly. In addition, each FreedomVoice partner is assigned an account manager who provides weekly guidance as well as quarterly sales and marketing planning assistance.

To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

Chris Sterbenc, Vice President of Sales, FreedomVoice, said, “We are deeply committed to the success of our partners and have invested significant resources to ensure they have the training and tools to achieve their business goals. From our Onboarding program through our quarterly sales and marketing planning support, we work hand-in-hand with our partners to ensure their success. CRN’s 5-Star Partner Program rating is quite an honor, as it validates our efforts and ongoing commitment to our partners.”

The 2015 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at
