TalkSwitch Channel Program Wins PHONE+ Top 50 Award

PHONE+ ranks TalkSwitch among prestigious list of best channel programs voted by industry sales partners.

Ottawa, Canada, September 24, 2008 --( PHONE+ magazine, a resource for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, announced that TalkSwitch has been selected as a Top 50 Channel Program. The results of this contest will be published in the magazine’s 2008 Channel Program Guide special issue, due out Oct. 15.

PHONE+ is very proud to honor TalkSwitch and the Top 50 Channel Program winners. TalkSwitch was selected among hundreds of companies who submitted their channel program details in hopes of being recognized as a Top 50 Channel Program. Voted on by more than 1,000 indirect sales partners, the winners represent communications suppliers -- carriers, resellers, master agents and manufacturers – who provide their agents with that extra something -- extra attention, rapid quotes, sales training or special promotions -- that makes agents want to do business with them.

“We’re very proud to be recognized by our channel partners in this way,” said Tim Welch, VP Sales, TalkSwitch. “This award is particularly rewarding because it comes from the readers and the resellers themselves. Our TalkSwitch &You channel program was created to support the specific needs of our value-added resellers selling telephony products to the small business marketplace, and this accolade reinforces our commitment to being a truly vendor-friendly™ partner. We look forward to continuing our strong relationships with our channel partners in the future.”
