PARTNER PROGRAM

Channel Partners

We know what a good partner program looks like.

Your Advantage with Windstream Enterprise

Genuine and Transparent. We know what we do well and what we don’t. Our channel program has undergone and will continue to undergo extensive improvements—the proof is in the results. We hold ourselves accountable and share our performance with our partners.

Power Products. We lead in network, SD-WANUCaaS and CCaaS. As businesses look to the cloud, our SD-WAN Concierge and OfficeSuite® UCaaS offerings are the two hottest solutions in the voice and networking industry. And all our products are delivered on our secure nationwide network.

Market Position. We understand what’s happening in the market, and our partner program transformation reflects that strength. Which is why we intentionally evolved into a carrier with assets that scale and the agility partners need to serve enterprise and small business.
