FluentStream Wins 2022 Channel Program of the Year Visionary Spotlight Award

UCaaS Provider Recognized for Industry-First Commission Buyout Incentive and Channel Program Enhancements

DENVER (June 22, 2022) -- ChannelVision Magazine has named FluentStream, the fastest-growing unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) provider for small and mid-sized organizations, the winner of the 2022 Channel Program of the Year Visionary Spotlight Award. This year’s awards recognize innovative solutions addressing the challenges of a changing workplace.

FluentStream was recognized for enhancements to its Partner Program, announced earlier this year, which includes an industry-first commission Buyout Incentive Program. Historically telecom sales agents lacked reward opportunities for the commission streams they built. FluentStream’s Buyout Incentive Program gives partners the opportunity for a one-time commission buyout when they reach a commission threshold. FluentStream designed this program to give partners a lucrative incentive option that allows them to receive a cash influx for the business they have built.

In addition to designing the first-ever Buyout Incentive Program, the company offers multiple ways for its partners to gain a competitive edge by adding FluentStream’s reliable communications services to their product portfolio. Partners can choose from different partner tiers based on what structure best aligns with their organization. FluentStream also offers a web portal that allows its partners to create quotes, register deals, and access co-branded marketing materials.

“Given our industry’s consolidation and general economic uncertainty, we have focused on innovative partner programs to help our partners achieve their objectives,” said Cass Gilmore, CEO, FluentStream. “We have had a tremendous response to our Buyout Incentive Program and are tracking another year of record channel growth.”

Last year, FluentStream experienced 200% year-over-year growth in its number of partners. The company is on track to achieve another milestone year in 2022 due to its channel program enhancements and the several additional advantages it offers to help partners close deals and grow their businesses, including:

  • Rapid Response Time - US-based fast and friendly, human customer support available 24/7.

  • Personal Onboarding - Customers without in-house IT teams are often at a disadvantage due to the resources required to deploy new systems. FluentStream removes that barrier by providing every client with a dedicated onboarder to ensure that the system is deployed correctly.

  • Easy to Administer - FluentStream’s software suite is easy to use and can be managed by anyone in the office.

  • Complete Product Platform - Customers gain a cloud-hosted phone, conferencing, fax, text messaging, and a full suite of reporting tools well suited to support sales teams and call centers.

  • No Contracts - FluentStream does not require long-term contracts, which means clients receive absolute flexibility to grow and manage their accounts as their business requires.

  • Integration - With the FluentStream platform, customers can seamlessly integrate with popular software tools like Salesforce.

“We appreciate this recognition from ChannelVision for our efforts to maximize support for our channel partners,” Gilmore said.
