Comcast Business Adds SYNNEX Corporation to Channel Partner Program as First Distributor Master Agent
Comcast Business's Ethernet, Internet, Voice, Cloud and TV Solutions are Key Platform to Leading Distributor's Telecommunications and Networking Practice
PHILADELPHIA & FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Comcast Business today announced that SYNNEX Corporation (NYS: SNX) , a leading distributor of IT products and services that serves thousands of value added resellers (VARs) across the country, has joined the Comcast Business Solutions Provider Program as the first distributor to serve as a master agent. Comcast Business's full line of Ethernet, Internet, voice, cloud and TV solutions are a key platform of SYNNEX' mobility, communications and networking services distribution practice, MOBILITYSolv, that complement the numerous cloud application services SYNNEX VARs are already offering to their customers to provide an ideal pathway to the cloud.
"We are very excited about the relationship with Comcast Business, a key platform of fixed line service offerings in our MOBILITYSolv strategy," said Kevin Murai, president and chief executive officer, SYNNEX Corporation. "Comcast's large national footprint of connectivity solutions along with their hosted voice and video solutions provide a natural complement to the needs of SYNNEX customers. By offering these services, our VARs can now provide a singular source to the end user - a true differentiator which allows them to grow their recurring revenues at an accelerated pace."
MOBILITYSolv allows SYNNEX to create "solution bundles" that combine network connectivity services from Comcast Business with other SYNNEX offerings, such as local area network (LAN) switches and routers, servers, security products, storage equipment and mobility products. This includes Comcast's full line of Ethernet, Internet, voice, cloud and TV services. The resulting solution bundles will enable SYNNEX VARs to build end-to-end mobility and cloud communications solutions for their customers, from small-to-medium businesses to the enterprise.
SYNNEX is also equipped with sales and support tools, as well as dedicated sales and support staff to assist their VARs in the sales and quoting process. The company is available to work with VARs located throughout the Comcast footprint, which covers 39 states and the District of Columbia, and includes 20 of the top 25 metropolitan markets in the US.
"We have always been impressed by SYNNEX's support - it is unique in the industry and helps us grow our business," said Allen Brooks, executive vice president at ServIT in Kennesaw, GA. "The Comcast Business relationship is yet another example of SYNNEX's innovation, and the resources they put in place to support this model are a 'game changer' in the IT distribution industry. We are already recommending services from Comcast Business to our clients, and we use them in our data center and corporate offices. This new relationship will add greater value to ServIT in order to grow our monthly recurring revenues."
"VAR partners are selling network connectivity services in greater numbers than at any time in history due to the rapid adoption of cloud services by small and medium sized businesses," said Terry Connell, senior vice president of sales at Comcast Business. "SYNNEX has an impressive reach into this community and the dedicated networking practice that they have built to support Comcast Business will be able to support a large number of VARs and their end-user customers in the Comcast national footprint."
"Comcast Business is an integral part of our 'Connect, Move and Control' mobility strategy, making it easier than ever for our VARs to build a services-led, recurring revenue stream business model around connectivity," said Adnon Dow, vice president, global mobility solutions business unit, SYNNEX Corporation. "Our relationship facilitates bringing services delivery capabilities to our VAR ecosystem, which is a key to keeping them ahead of their competition."
