Broadvoice and RingCentral won big in Sandler Partners‘ latest partner awards.

Broadvoice claimed the service distributor’s MVP award at Sandler’s recent National Summit. In addition, Broadvoice took home an award for operational excellence.

RingCentral also doubled up on awards, earning the largest revenue growth with Sandler and winning best unified communications supplier. They joined 8×8, Zoom, Comcast, Spectrum, Broadvoice and Dyopath in the list of vendors winning awards.


Sandler Partners’s Alan Sandler

“Our award-winning providers, who are in a very tough competition, also shared common themes. They aren’t satisfied with the way it’s always been done,” said Alan Sandler, Sandler Partners managing partner. “Instead, they are true partners and demonstrate tremendous channel leadership. They have spent time listening to feedback and actually moved to implement changes that benefit everyone in the ecosystem. They are deserving champions, and we appreciate our partnership.”
