With several key organizations already on board, Knight and his team are focused on providing hands-on engagement, training and support to ensure partner success while continuing to seek and build strategic relationships.
“No one else is approaching cloud communications like Corvisa,” said Knight. "The combination of contact center software, integrated business phone and platform from a single vendor is truly unique. I am excited to be part of a company that is changing the way people are thinking about communications software. Partners find the versatility of Corvisa’s solutions equally compelling. This is the first time the partner community has had access to the kind of flexibility that the Summit Platform provides paired with scalability that can support top tier enterprise contact centers. It empowers partners to effectively and confidently address the needs of any size organization.”
