Share one cloud related success that qualifies you to win this award.

 Earlier this year I launched something that has been a vision of mine for about 5 years. I noticed that with the shift to cloud, many of the legacy telecom/IT partners are desperately seeking out education and tools to establish and promote themselves as thought leaders ahead of the trends, but many don’t know how to take this knowledge and execute/market it in an effective way.

I wanted to solve this gap by building the industry’s most comprehensive Demand Gen Suite for partners, which I believe I’ve achieved with CoNEXtion. CoNEXtion is a cloud based end to end Demand Gen Suite specifically designed for legacy IT/telecom partners. (I believe) we’ve developed something never before seen with CoNEXtion; I’m thrilled Nextiva is now providing the best possible solution for partners to easily create end-to-end marketing strategies, do their jobs more effectively than ever before, and effectively position themselves as true thought leaders.

It utilizes quality lead syndication and easy to use demand generation tools to provide partners with the ability to seamlessly create marketing strategies that uncover and manage leads from the top of the funnel to close of a sale.
