Executives will use the conference as an opportunity to discuss the company’s transformation, the importance of UCaaS, and its newly released SD-WAN functionality
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., April 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream Enterprise, a leading provider of advanced network communications, will unveil its new “Our Size Fits You” campaign and discuss the company’s commitment to be pathfinders for partners through technological disruption at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2018 in Las Vegas.
“Last year we announced our channel transformation plan. This year I can proudly point to several areas where we delivered on our commitments. We are moving in the right direction,” said Curt Allen, senior vice president at Windstream Enterprise. “Proof of this transformation is clear in our recent invitation to join PlanetOne’s Preferred Provider program, which is just one of several announcements we expect to make in the near future regarding renewed momentum with many of the largest master agents and direct selling partners in the space.”
In October 2017, longtime master agent Curt Allen joined Windstream Enterprise to lead the channel program. In February 2018, Windstream Enterprise unveiled new brands for its enterprise and wholesale businesses, and in March its channel program was named a preferred provider by PlanetOne.
“Our momentum continues, and with the launch of the Our Size Fits You campaign there has never been a better time to partner with Windstream Enterprise,” said Allen. “This new campaign is about claiming our provider differentiation, telling partners that we are a fundamentally different company today, showing them through performance how that is true, and giving them a unique incentive to partner with us. We are positioned to be an agile service provider between the LECs and the local cable companies, which will help our partners guide customers to solutions like SD-WAN, UCaaS and growing security solutions.”
