MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 -- Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services and the world's largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, has announced significant enhancements to its industry leading Partner Program as well as a brand new Partner Sales Portal to help accelerate its fast growing channel.

Empowering over 12,000 resellers, Intermedia's Partner Program already gives partners the ability to resell an entire suite of cloud services -- including Hosted Exchange, Cloud Server, Hosted PBX, Lync, file sharing and syncing, back-up, security and more -- entirely under their own brand. Partners get complete control over billing, bundling, and every other aspect of their customer relationships, which enables them to seamlessly integrate Intermedia's cloud services into their existing portfolio of services.

The enhancements to Intermedia's Partner Program -- which is the leading partner program for MSPs, VARs and other companies that provide cloud services to SMB customers -- make it even easier for partners to quickly build high-margin, recurring revenue around a broad suite of cloud services. Existing Intermedia partners will now be classified as Gold, Silver or Registered based on multiple factors that demonstrate their commitment to growth of their Intermedia business. Each partner status comes with a wide-range of benefits, including special incentives, increased levels of support, and improved tools and resources delivered through Intermedia's new Partner Sales Portal.

The new Partner Sales Portal gives Intermedia's partners' sales and marketing teams easy access to the resources they need to be more successful. This includes on-demand webinars, educational documents, and white-label materials to help partners generate leads and close deals. In addition to 24x7 phone support, partners will have immediate access to their Intermedia partner sales representative through live-chat and request call-back functionality.

"We've been very successful building our cloud business with Intermedia's Hosted Exchange, Cloud Server and Hosted PBX services. This new Partner Sales Portal gives my team easy access to resources they need to take our marketing and sales execution efforts to an even higher level," said Mike Maendler, Chief Executive Officer of Technology & Beyond.

With the launch of these new partner program enhancements, Intermedia continues to demonstrate its commitment to the channel. "As our suite of cloud services continues to grow rapidly, we're increasing partner support, sales and marketing tools, training and demand generation resources," said Michael Gold, president of Intermedia. "These new enhancements to our partner program are specifically designed to keep pace with our expanding portfolio of cloud services."
