RapidScale Turns to Master Agent to Distribute its Cloud Services
RapidScale is a managed cloud services provider that recently became the latest cloud provider to sign a partnership agreement with master agent Bridgepointe Technologies. Bridgepointe is a California-based telecommunications and IT service distributor that also agreed to distribute the unified cloud services of PanTerra (News - Alert) Networks in February.
Bridgepointe’s agreement with RapidScale will see the former incorporating the latter’s cloud solutions into its portfolio of services. RapidScale joins Bridgepointe’s expansive portfolio of service providers as the premier managed cloud computing provider, specializing in desktop as a service (DaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), hosted Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange, and the unique all-in-one SMB solution CloudOffice.
“At Bridgepointe, we are very excited to have finalized our sales agreement with RapidScale, as we have known the company, product set, and executive team for years,” said Gary Jacobs, Bridgepointe's vice president of Channel Sales, Southern California. “We are very confident in the products and technologies that RapidScale offers and, more importantly, we are confident in the level of service we know they will provide to our mutual customers. We see RapidScale as a big component of our business going forward as we continue to do more and more in the public cloud space.”
Bridgepointe has an impressive network of professional agents ready to handle RapidScale’s suite of services, pairing them up with the companies that need them the most. In other words, RapidScale benefits from this agreement by an expanded reach via an experienced master agent. Bridgepointe, meanwhile, gets to expand its efforts in the public cloud space.
Both companies align in their strong focus on providing the best possible client experience.
“RapidScale sees this as a key partnership and is thrilled to work with a group of sales partners who are forward-thinking and provide a true consultative approach,” said Homa Popal, senior strategic channel manager, West Region at RapidScale.
