ScanSource, Inc., of Greenville, SC, has acquired Kingcom’s channel business assets and associated support organization to sell communication solutions through the Verizon Partner Program (VPP). The acquisition was completed through ScanSource’s subsidiary, Intelisys.
Kingcom, which has been an Intelisys partner since 2013, is a VPP Platinum member and its channel business brings specialized resources through which Intelisys sales partners can sell Verizon services.
“As Verizon continues to focus on the channel, it’s imperative our sales partners are ready and able to most effectively sell and support these services offerings,” said Jay Bradley, president of Intelisys. “We are excited about the level of support and expertise we are able to bring to our partners through our relationship with Verizon, and we look forward to the continued opportunities ahead through our investment in this relationship.”
“Kingcom has done a tremendous job in bringing Verizon’s business services to the channel,” said Janet Schijns, VP Solutions and Sales Channels for Verizon Business Markets. “We are excited about this next chapter as together we dig deeper and reinforce our commitment to the channel and to the Intelisys Sales Partner community.”
In August of last year, ScanSource entered the recurring revenue telecom and cloud services market through its acquisition of Intelisys, a provider of business communications services, including voice, data, access, cable, collaboration, wireless and cloud.
This acquisition creates a direct supplier relationship between ScanSource and Verizon, and enables Intelisys to add highly qualified Verizon-focused resources to support its customers.
