Today, I am pleased to announce that Datatel1 and Digital Planet Communications Inc. have attained Apex level status within the Masergy Zenith Program. We’re delighted to induct them into this elite group and celebrate their achievements as top leaders in our channel community.

“Datatel1 is thrilled to be named as an Apex partner of Masergy. Our partnership with Masergy is supported through deep sales alignment with our team and the best-of-breed solutions Masergy provides to our customers,” said Stephen Murray, CEO of Datatel1.

“Masergy checks all of our boxes. As one of Digital Planet Communications’ top suppliers Masergy has it all, network, product selection, SLA’s, industry recognition, customer service, and most of all, great people. We highly recommend Masergy,” said Brent Killen, Owner of Digital Planet Communications Inc.

Partner agents who reach Apex status have the proven ability to help companies of all sizes digitally transform with Masergy’s cloud networking platform. They understand how to leverage Masergy’s flexible portfolio of SASE, SD-WAN and unified communications solutions to present a wide selection of choices, meeting companies no matter where they are in their transformation journey.

Apex is the highest level within the Zenith Program for our agents. Partners ascend to the Apex level based on sales bookings, deal volumes and training. Apex members receive many benefits, some of which include:

  • Revenue & sales growth with differentiated and innovative SD-WAN solutions
  • Enhanced co-marketing including campaigns, leads, social selling and MDF
  • Expanded sales support with quarterly business & marketing reviews
  • Incentives and highly competitive commission structures available to all partners

As a partner-first company, Masergy launched the Zenith Program in 2020 to re-energize our partner community, putting more programs and resources in place that sharpen our focus on shared success. We view Apex members as trusted advisors for companies addressing the challenges of work-from-home, data security, and the ongoing need for innovation. As IT consultants, partners play a critical role in helping companies rapidly deploy best of breed solutions that can deliver a competitive edge.
