SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 07 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PanTerra Networks today announced that TMC has named PanTerra as the winner of the 2022 INTERNET TELEPHONY Friend of the Channel Award, presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine.
PanTerra offers Streams, its unified cloud service that includes professional voice, video and collaboration such as team rooms, screen sharing and team conferencing. Because Streams is designed with the end user in mind, it starts as a basic feature-focused chair for the small office with mobility, a mid-range professional chair with team collaboration tools, and finally morphs into a very comprehensive set of features for its call center seat. Channel partners and customers benefit from PanTerra’s comprehensive quoting tool, pre-sales site survey and an unrivaled level of support provided by a dedicated team of sales, engineering and sales and customer service. All of our partner programs include a comprehensive ramp program and after-sales training program. PanTerra supports our channel partners and their customers every step of the way.
We offer four types of partner programs:
All programs offer residual commissions and hardware revenue sharing.
Chief Officer: Master Agents are the most comprehensive type of reseller, who must have an established networking business and the ability to manage their own VARs, resellers and agents. They need the infrastructure to support and pay their partners. PanTerra invoices the customer directly.
Agent: Becoming an agent is the lowest barrier to entry for partners wishing to represent PanTerra. The agent finds opportunities and, with the help of PanTerra’s channel staff, closes sales to grow their business volume. Agents are not obligated to support, maintain or bill the client.
Value Added Reseller (VAR): This established partner usually uses its own trucks, support staff and sales team. This partner nurtures, closes sales, installs equipment on site and supports its customers. With this added requirement to take care of the customer comes greater residual income and bonuses. PanTerra charges the customer, not the VAR.
Wholesale: PanTerra’s “white label” wholesale program is for large, established partners who can own and maintain their entire cloud communication services business, while we manage the back-end technology and network. Wholesalers have a custom branded offering from PanTerra and are responsible for all aspects of the business including marketing, quoting, selling, installation, support and customer billing.

Arthur Chang, President and CEO of PanTerra, was quoted: “PanTerra’s unified cloud collaboration was a big draw for partners and customers long before Covid forced many companies to redesign their communications infrastructure to support remote work. With low distribution overhead, minimal on-site time to implement and install equipment, and support customers, partner costs are significantly reduced. Arthur continued, “Add to that a new business model that rewards the partner with residual payments for the life of a customer and the partner has found a great way to develop a monthly revenue stream that goes beyond just closing a new client. We offer bonus accelerators on long-term contracts and revenue share on handsets that increase our appeal. PanTerra’s solution gives partners and customers peace of mind knowing they are in safe hands from the company that understands and delivers the best communications solution in the industry.
“On behalf of TMC and the publishers of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, we are honored to recognize PanTerra as the winner of the INTERNET TELEPHONY Friend of the Channel Award for its distinguished programming,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “We look forward to seeing PanTerra’s continued excellence in the future.”
