Phone+ magazine, a resource for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, recently announced that NBS has been selected, once again, as a Top 50 Channel Program. Details of this contest are published in the October issue of Phone+ magazine and in the online 2010 Channel Program Guide. The winners were also recognized at the recent Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Washington, D.C., which ran from September 20th to the 22nd.
NBS has placed in the Phone+ Top 50 Channel Program for the past 4 years in a row, as voted by members of the indirect channel. NBS was selected from among hundreds of companies who submitted their channel programs for the 2010 ballot. Winners were determined by the more than 1,500 votes submitted by indirect sales partners. The company was voted one of the best when it comes to channel specific concerns such as ease of doing business, quick quoting, responsiveness, extra support, higher commissions and better spiffs.
“PHONE+ is proud to recognize these channel programs for their exceptional service to the channel," said Larry Lannon, group publisher for PHONE+. “These companies set a high standard for others in the indirect channel; how much they’re appreciated is evidenced by the number of partners that turned out to vote for their favorites" Mr. Lannon added. NBS founder and CEO Jon Kaufman commented, "We are honored to be among the Top 50 programs voted on by those in the industry themselves. For more than 25 years our dealers and channel partners have been the life's blood of our organization, and keeping them happy is our top priority.”
