Sandler Partners surged in sales for Cox Business and its RapidScale subsidiary last year, and Clear Connect continued its strong performance with the cable provider.

Cox once again announced its annual awards for top technology service distributor (TSD) and technology advisor (TA) partners. The results show that Sandler Partners performed the best among the TSDs in terms of selling the combined portfolio connectivity (Cox) and cloud services (RapidScale).

"Sandler Partner’s ability to sustain historically strong customer relationships and deliver enterprise solutions skyrocketed sales in 2023. The team celebrates [managing partner] Alan [Sandler] and the team for their collaborative efforts in the channel, achieving top cloud and connectivity sales with Cox Business and RapidScale," Cox Business said.

Cox recognized Telarus as top connectivity growth distributor.

Clear Connect Stays Dominant

On the customer-facing partner side, Clear Connect won top overall connectivity partner. Clear Connect has announced that it has now sold more than $10 million in monthly recurring revenue in its overall practice.

In the meantime, Clear Connect's sister company, Innovative Business Solutions, won top connectivity distributor. In addition, Cox named Innovative senior director of product Matt Marshall its top connectivity evangelist.
