Are You Busy or Productive?

September 28, 2016

Everyone is busy. Super busy. So busy. But are you productive?

Are you stepping closer to your goals?

Is Your Channel Program Up to Standards?

September 28, 2016

You have a channel program but it isn't going well. There might be solid reasons for this.

You might be too hard to do business with. Too much friction and I will sell the other guy.

Billion Dollar Time Bomb

September 23, 2016

It used to be a celebration to hit a billion dollars in revenue in the CLEC space. It was like they crossed the finish line, because after they hit the billion dollar revenue mark, they went for beers and never looked back. And these Billion $ CLECs tumbled.

Intermedia was the first.

The Cyber-Security Threat

September 21, 2016

If you have read most of my blogs, you know that I am critical of speakers, especially keynotes. Usually it is a commercial, an advertisement for the company they work for, which is total crap. Who wants to sit through that?

Chris Richter, Level3 SVP of Global Security Services, did a great job as the keynote for Microcorp's One on One event.

The Sub-Agent Dilemma

September 20, 2016

Fresh off coming back from Microcorp's annual partner event (and 30th Anniversary party), I am reflecting on conversations with the partners.

Some are wondering what vendors to look at. Who is real and who is not. Who will be around to pay commissions in three years?

The State of UC&C - Part 3

September 14, 2016

I have a lot of snippets on the UCAAS and UC&C space to share, in no certain order.

We have seen consolidation in the contact center space - ININ-Genesys and others. It isn't over yet. There are too many players in the marketplace, and for right this moment money is still cheap.

Skype is Taking Share

September 12, 2016

Microsoft beat Salesforce in the enterprise SaaS market in Q2, according to Synergy Research Group. "Microsoft was only number two with 7.9% market share of the global enterprise Software-as-a-Service industry in H1 2015." Now in "Q2 2016 resulted in Microsoft taking 15% of the enterprise SaaS market, beating Salesforce's 14% share."

NoJitter did a reader survey about Skype4B. Gary Kim has the break down HERE.

Where is the Demand?

September 8, 2016

There are a number of external sales channels: franchises, affiliates, referrals, VAR/inter-connect, systems integrated, agents/brokers (to name a few). It works for more industries than just telecom, real estate and insurance.

All those models are for Sales. Remember though that isn't the same as demand or lead generation or any marketing.

Contact Center Consolidation

September 7, 2016

Rumor was that Genesys was trying to buy Avaya's contact center business. Next thing you know, the announcement is that Genesys bought Interactive Intelligence for $1.4 Billion. The PR says that it will to Create the World's Premier Omni-channel Customer Experience Company. Last time I heard that was when NICE bought Incontact.
