Verizon Seeks to Strengthen Asia-Pacific Presence

Asia-Pacific Presence

Verizon Wireless has taken a bold step towards strengthening its presence in the Asia-Pacific region with a new partnership program.

It will allow the company to serve a broader range of clients. A press statement dated March 21 said that the Verizon Partner Program (VPP) will offer systems integrators and solution providers tailored engagement opportunities to tap into Verizon’s network, managed security, cloud, advanced communications, connected devices and professional services expertise.

Francis Yip, Verizon’s group vice president of Asia-Pacific said the new program will give a completely new outlook to their engagements in the region as they seek to dominate. “The new streamlined VPP has now been introduced in the Asia-Pacific region and we’re seeing strong interest from the partner community. Compellingly, companies can decide how they want to work with us whether on specific solution areas, vertical markets or targeted geographies,” Yip said.

“While we’re not putting a cap on the number of partners who work with us, our chosen partners must be as passionate as we are about adding value to our customers as they evolve their business in the digital world.” Partner members will receive access to the Verizon Partner Portal, co-marketing resources, online training tools and global certifications. Members can progress through 4 partner tiers – Member, Silver, Gold and Platinum all at their own pace.

Peter Yialas, Managing Director of Australian-based DX Solutions said they are happy to have partnered with Verizon. “We view this as an opportunity to work with Verizon, a world-class technology leader, to expand our customer offerings. The combination of Verizon’s product capabilities and our market leading reputation, products and services, means we are able to offer a very compelling value proposition.”

Since its introduction in the US, more than 1,300 partners have signed up to the program which was initially being rolled out for ‘agent’ partners in Japan, Australia, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
