Focus on Next-Gen IT Solutions

When you’re shooting at a moving target, you aim at where it’s going, not where it is.  One of the key values we offer our partners is our constant assessment of technology, analysis  of the market, and futurecasting of trends to keep them aligned with the rapidly changing needs of the market.  In turn, we align our internal resources and efforts to ensure that our partners are prepared for “the next big thing” before it hits.  

SD-WAN

Application driven demand for network optimization and enhanced WAN performance is driving the explosive growth of SD-WAN.  No master agent has more SD-WAN vendors or experience in the SD-WAN market.

UCaaS and CCaaS

Unified Communications and Call Center as a Service is now the core solution to enable communication and collaboration.  But it’s still early in the adoption cycle and AVANT is the best partner to prepare you to get your share.

IaaS

Public or private cloud and hyperscale environments are now the preferred method of building IT infrastructure.  It’s an expansive world that requires deep expertise, and AVANT is uniquely experienced to get you prepared to sell. 

Security

Security challenges and malicious attacks continue to grow in complexity and frequency.  New tools and services are emerging to respond to the new world threats. AVANT is the only master agent with a dedicated security practice with experts on staff. 

Our Approach to Channel Sales Enablement

Most master agents offer their partners some sales enablement services but leave their partners to piece it all together to make it work for them.  AVANT has the entire scope of the sales enablement tools and activities needed to take on the new landscape of next-gen IT solutions, and it’s glued together with unmatched born-in-the-cloud experience and personal touch.
