    Birch grants Partner Excellence Award to Sandler Partners after surpassing $1M in monthly billings

    Atlanta – May 18, 2015 – Birch Communications (“Birch”) a leading nationwide provider of communications, network and cloud services to small, mid-sized, enterprise and wholesale businesses, announced today that it has awarded Sandler Partners, one of the nation’s largest master agencies, with a Partner Excellence Award.

    This exclusive award reflects Sandler Partners’ success in generating more than $1 million in billings per month. Birch continues to provide value to its agents, and their customers, by delivering comprehensive communication solutions while allowing customers to combine their locations into one bill for all of their needs.

    “As one of Birch’s most important partner relationships, I’m proud to honor Sandler Partners with this exclusive distinction,” said Brad Smith, Vice President of Indirect Sales at Birch. “Birch’s investment in Sandler Partners has spanned the greater part of a decade and has been successful due to Birch’s long history of commitment to the channel, our diverse portfolio of products and services and our expansive geographic footprint that can service truly any-sized business, in all 50 states.”

    Birch is dedicated to building partner relationships that enable the channel to thrive in the marketplace. The company has strategically broadened its product portfolio and geographic footprint, increasing partners’ ability to sell in new markets and generate greater service revenues. Birch is known for its outstanding partner compensation plans, which include upfront, residual, and bonus components.  Birch partners can sell basic phone and broadband along with symmetric, business-grade internet such as T1, Ethernet over Copper, and Fiber technologies, and these solutions can be used in combination with MPLS.  Together with its feature-rich TotalCloud PBX, TotalCloud Data Center, and TotalCloud File Storage solutions, Birch partners have everything their customers need from one provider.

    Only a select number of Birch’s partners have been able to attain this exclusive status. This also marks a year-over-year increase of more than 20% for Sandler Partners and it’s projected that much more growth is ahead.

    “We are honored to receive this Partner Excellence Award from Birch,” said Alan Sandler, Founder and Managing Partner at Sandler Partners. “Birch is an important part of our portfolio, delivering a potent alternative to incumbent LECs, especially for multi-location customers, where Birch’s ability to combine their locations under one bill, including for POTS services, is a strong value proposition.”
