CLICK TO TWEET: Ruckus adds four new specializations to the Ruckus Ready Partner Program.
Partner Specialization programs will enable us to uncover new highly profitable
customer opportunities for MSP and Support services," said Jon Novakowski,
CVO, Vector Tech Group. "These Specialization Programs are further
testament that Ruckus invests in its channel and provides unique programs—with
targeted training and incentives—to benefit its channel base. We look forward
to extending our partnership with Ruckus in the years to come."
new specializations include:
- Support identifies leading regional partners that define, sell and deliver support
services to end customers for their Ruckus network switching and wireless
solutions. Qualified and certified Support partners receive deep discounts and
performance-based rebate incentives, enabling partners to invest in capability
and infrastructure to achieve excellent customer experience, leading to high
profitability and customer satisfaction.
- MSP recognizes
partners with expertise in delivering and managing services based on Ruckus
solutions, as well as Outcome-as-a-Service to the customers. The program
provides partners with additional product discounts to solve customer
technology needs and financial solutions to provide subscription-based
Network-as-a-Service solutions. This removes hurdles on capital expenditure in
the sales engagement. Since managed services require a wide variety of
capabilities, the MSP specialization provides partners with a collaboration platform
for critical sales opportunities.
- Federal recognizes partners with expertise in selling, deploying and supporting Ruckus into
the U.S. Federal Government. Additionally, Ruckus SKUs that are compliant with
the Federal Trade Agreement Acts (TAA) are available to partners via an
authorized Ruckus distributor.
- CBRS develops and recognizes partners with expertise in selling, deploying and
supporting Ruckus CBRS LTE solutions. These partners can deliver Private LTE
solutions for enterprises in markets such as education, large public venue, retail,
hospitality, industrial, federal, health care and others to enable the highest
quality wireless connections for mission-critical applications. This
specialization is available to partners in the U.S.
Federal and CBRS specializations can all be added onto an existing level of the
Ruckus Ready Partner Program, either Elite or Select. The support
specialization is available to Elite and Distribution partners as well as MSP
committed to our channel partners and are always looking for new ways to
provide a world-class partner experience for our solution providers,” said Raelyn
Kritzer, vice president of global partner programs, Ruckus Networks. “The
additional capabilities available through these four new specializations give
our partners yet another valuable way to expand their skillsets, be recognized
for their competency and rewarded for their investment in our solutions,
ensuring a mutually profitable relationship.”
