(NYSE: LVLT), recognized Intelisys, a technology services distributor and master agent, with its inaugural Channel Partner Program Summit Award. Intelisys received the honor for reaching a significant revenue milestone as an Elite member of Level 3’s Channel Partner Program.

“Intelisys has built a solid reputation with its sales partners by providing outstanding value-add services and carrier solutions to solve customer challenges,” said Garrett Gee, indirect channel chief, Level 3. “We are proud to recognize their accomplishment with our first-ever Summit Award and appreciate the long-term relationship with Level 3.”

In its ten year history working with Level 3, Intelisys has optimized the independent sales channel experience to raise the standards for how business telecommunications services and cloud services are bought and sold for the greater benefit of end-user customers.

“We are humbled to receive this honor from Level 3, and in truth, we owe this success to the partnership itself and our incredible sales partners,” said Jay Bradley, president, Intelisys. “At Intelisys, we have a carefully honed list of supplier best practices against which we evaluate all our partnerships. Level 3 ticks every box on the list. We are passionate about overcoming challenges to help our sales partners make informed choices so they can maximize the value of their customers’ technology investments. Level 3 has been equally passionate about providing the dedicated resources, tools and people where they matter. Indeed, more than 100 of our most elite sales partners—our Club TPC members—are receiving Level 3 commissions.”

The milestone, marked by the Channel Partner Program Summit Award, was is due in part to Level 3’s committed nationwide presence and exceptional diversity across Intelisys’ national network of sales partners. Coupled with a reliable escalation path and well-priced, diverse product mix, Intelisys sales partners have been able to position Level 3 with confidence in front of their business customers.

The Level 3 Channel Partner Program includes three tiers: Elite, Premier and Authorized. At the Elite level, there are eight partners. Elite partner status is awarded to a select group of channel partners who achieve specific sales and revenue performance targets. Intelisys is the first Elite Channel Partner to have reached the Summit award level.
