Equinix, a global provider of colocation and interconnection services, has launched its expanded Master Agent Program providing sales and marketing resources spanning sales and technical training, event marketing and demand generation. The program would offer generous sales incentives to Equinix Master Agents and their sub-agents.
Equinix helps partners grow recurring revenue streams with data center colocation, network offerings, and enabling public/private/hybrid cloud hosting platforms for enterprise customers. US-based Master Agents receive commissions for business they develop in any of Equinix’s 100+ International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers operating in 32 business metros, in 15 countries in Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
“Our expanded Agent program, now with very competitive commissions, is the product of a commitment by the Equinix executive team to accelerate long term growth through our partners,” said Scott Walker, vice president, Global Partner Program. “For example, US Agents can extend their sales reach into our global markets by offering their clients access to all of our data centers worldwide. Couple this reach with our innovative technical offerings like our Solution Validation Centers, Equinix Performance Hub, and Equinix Cloud Exchange and our partners have a complete arsenal of data center solutions. This creates enormous competitive advantage for our partners.”
Several leading partners have enrolled in the new program including Avant Communications, Bridgepointe Technologies, Colotraq, Intelisys, Presidio, and the World Telecom Group.
“We have worked with Equinix many years but now we project our sub-agent sales activity to pick up significantly by participating in the new Equinix Master Agent Program,” said Brian Miller, owner, Bridgepointe Technologies. “Equinix has always been an easy and safe choice for our clients because of their global footprint, network choice, security, and more than 99.999 percent global average uptime. We are excited about serving enterprise customers with direct access to major cloud hosting providers such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. Direct access to these major cloud providers gives our clients the ability to build hybrid cloud solutions in an Equinix data center that they can’t do anywhere else.”
