Designed to distinguish, empower and reward current and future partners; IR’s enhanced global Partner Program will recognize partners in three tiers: Authorized, Gold and Platinum and comes with a rich array of benefits at each level.

“IR employs a channel-preferred business model to drive the best possible customer relationships and strong sales funnels for our partners” said Darc Rasmussen, CEO, IR. “It is important for us to formally recognize our channel partners through an official IR Partner Program. This new program was created to provide our partners with the flexibility to align with customer requirements, buying preferences, routes to market and business models, enabling them to grow their business with IR.

IR continues to strive towards a deep understanding of customers’ business challenges, working with strong alliances to better understand how IR’s technology can help them solve business critical problems. The new program will also provide support and resources to alliance partners like Avaya, Service Providers and distribution partners. The program emphasizes the company’s commitment to larger ecosystems tackling industry issues like the continued rollout of Microsoft Skype for Business.

“Following extensive research and review with our partner community, we believe we have a best of breed program and we look forward to bringing new partners on board“ said Mona Lolas, IR Global Partner Program Manager. “We look to feedback from our channel partners to always improve the way we do business. We will continue to work with our partners to implement best practices and evolve our strategies and teams to enable mutual long-term success.”
