BOSTON, MA (August 13, 2019)—Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications and collaboration platform provider for the modern global enterprise, has been awarded two 2019 Visionary Spotlight Awards (VSA) presented by Beka Business Media and ChannelVision Magazine. Fuze was recognized for overall excellence in Channel Program of the Year, as well as a leader in Enterprise Technology for Unified Communications and VoIP. The VSA program honors outstanding leadership and innovation in the channel.


“As the UCaaS market continues to mature, we believe that cloud technology is now a requirement of successful business communication models. With more than 400 partners engaged directly or through master agents, the growth of the Fuze channel program reflects the hard work of our team and the market’s demand for a powerful unified communications platform,” said Timothy Puccio, VP of Global Channels and Alliances at Fuze. “We are proud to be recognized as an industry leader in the channel and remain dedicated to building trusting relationships with our partners and enabling them to empower their customers with a modern communications platform that increases end-user productivity.”


Fuze channel partners are fully supported at all stages of the sales process with a flexible program, allowing partners to choose their own levels of involvement across the Fuze sales cycle, whether through collaboration on customer acquisitions from start to finish or simply offering an initial recommendation. The Fuze channel program enables value-added resellers, solution providers, and IT/communications consultants to offer a platform solution to their customers and prospects to help grow their business.


“This year’s class of VSA winners is one of our most innovative groups to date,” said Beka Business Media president and CEO Berge Kaprelian. “These companies are ushering in a new era in communications, built on technologies such as software-defined everything, IoT, the cloud, and next-generation security. In the process, they’re opening up many new doors for channel partners.”


Over the last 18 months Fuze has made significant improvements to its channel program, launching the Global Partner Program (GPP) to enable partners to resell the Fuze platform, developing the Professional Services (PS) Partner Program to increase its service delivery through partners, doubling headcount, increasing investments in global sales incentives and rebates and streamlining back-end processes.
