Network service provider recognized at 2017 Channel Partners Evolution Event for its innovative partner program

CHICAGO – Oct. 12, 2017 – Nitel, a leading nationwide managed telecom service provider, announced today it has earned the 2017 Channel Partners Choice Award from Channel Partners, a resource for indirect sales channels offering IT and telecom systems and services. Nitel was one of three companies to be honored with this inaugural award recognizing vendors for innovations in their channel-partner programs.

“Channel Partners Choice Awards recognize suppliers that deliver excellence in their channel programs, but you don’t have to take our word for it,” said Lorna Garey, Editor-in-Chief of Channel Partners. “These awards are 100 percent driven by the community. All CP Choice winners were nominated by current partners, with no incentive except saying ‘thanks’ for superior enablement, products and business support.”

Nitel was nominated for the 2017 Channel Partners Choice Awards by TVX, The Virtual Exchange. “Nitel brings a whole new level of innovation and creativity that simply isn’t available through other carriers,” said Strickland Jones, Partner, TVX. “They are not afraid to step outside the box when helping us solve our customers’ business problems, and there are no one-size-fits-all or standard solutions offerings with Nitel. Instead, our customers benefit from telecommunications solutions that are tailored specifically to meet their unique needs and requirements.”

“Thank you to TVX for nominating Nitel for this partner-led award,” said Jason Dishon, EVP of sales and marketing, Nitel. “It’s an honor to receive this award from Channel Partners for our partner program excellence and innovation. We are thrilled that our partners are benefiting from our channel-first approach and look forward to further program enhancements that continue to drive our mutual success.”
