Partner-Friendly Approach to Buoy Success

* Free Training and Certification â€“ Xirrus will ramp up its sales and technical teams and provide ongoing support
* Implementation Guarantee â€“ Xirrus will provide its partners the level of necessary support to complete implementation of its Wi-Fi Arrays and ensure that customers are experiencing optimal signal strength performance upon completion

* Sales and Marketing Support â€“ Xirrus will give partners access to the Xirrus Partner Portal, which contains downloadable brochures, sales tools, logos, images, promo items, presentations, case studies, videos and other helpful information
â€śe92plus are delighted to be supporting Xirrus in the launch of their new Partner Programme. In addition to their innovative technology, the unique Xirrus Guarantee and site surveys offer real differentiation for our channel partners above traditional vendors and more resellers are recognising the opportunities with Xirrus,â€ť said Mukesh Gupta, Managing Director of e92plus. â€śTheir continued investment in the UK market complements our value added services to help grow the business, and we look forward to building on our current success with continued growthâ€ť.
Partner Programme Generating Early Returns
Xirrus has established channel partners on almost every continent and is rapidly expanding its partner base.
â€śOur industry has reached a point where user density is no longer an excuse for glitches common in most public Wi-Fi solutions,â€ť said Brian Shemilt, Vice President of Channel Marketing at Xirrus. â€śUnderpowered or error-prone wireless technology drains technical resources and prevents users from completing mission-critical tasks. We support the greatest density, deliver the highest bandwidth, and offer the greatest price-for-performance on the market. More importantly, our technologyâ€™s unmatched reliability allows our clients to focus on their businesses rather than wasting precious time battling poor network performance.â€ť
â€śWe are experiencing explosive demand from organisations that increasingly depend on wireless for data centre and cloud access and our innovative wireless architecture delivers the performance and reliability users have come to expect from wired networks,â€ť said Sean Larner, Vice President of Sales for EMEA at Xirrus. â€śTo better service this clientele, we are investing in the rapid expansion of our partner programme, offering more resources and support to our partners throughout EMEA.
High Standards for Partners Ensure Top-notch Customer Service
Xirrus partners will be classified into two levels of membership, Platinum and Gold, depending on sales volume and the number of Xirrus-trained technical consultants. The company will require its partners to maintain high standards through:
* Strong sales and engineering teams
* A joint business plan co-developed with Xirrus
* Demonstrated willingness to actively promote Xirrus products
* Targeted marketing initiatives tailored to Xirrus products
