CHANNEL PARTNERS CONFERENCE & EXPO, LAS VEGAS — UC provider Nextiva on Tuesday unleashed the new NextivaOne partner program at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. The company designed it to support increasing opportunities for channel partners and their customers.

NextivaOne is for all types of partners to allow them to keep pace with the rapidly changing UCaaS and CCaaS markets. It allows them to expand their service portfolios and build revenue streams with Nextiva solutions.

Building beyond the existing Nextiva partner program, NextivaOne puts an increased emphasis on simplicity, flexibility and value. The program was built on the principle of enabling partners to succeed using their preferred growth models and aligning Nextiva resources to support their success.

Chris Reaburn is chief marketing officer at the company. He said Nextiva is doing everything from expanding the types of partners it engages with to modernizing its infrastructure. Also, the company is increasing the reach of its field base teams and scaling the marketing organization. The goal is to support a much larger revenue base.

In addition, the program makes it easier to build in additional service tools for partners to diagnose issues and serve customers without spending time in queues.

“We dramatically scaled the size and scope of our partner organization, which includes dedicating more resources up and down the line. This includes more than just account management,” Reaburn said. “It means offering solutions design, solutions engineering and project management and implementation. It also means involving customer relationship management within the guise of what we’re doing for our partners. This is kind of a capstone event for us.”
