WHAT is a VAR or Referral Partner?
A VAR (Value Added Reseller) or Referral partner is a business partner that has customers who need T1s, PRIs, DS3s, OC3s, MPLS, Ethernet or similar Services. Examples of VARs are businesses that sell, maintain, manage or repair computer networks, Telephone Systems, PBXs and/or other Telecommunications solutions and equipment.
A VAR is a business that sells services that are needed by some of our Telecommunications carrier service customers.
WHY become a Referral Partner?
As a GAIA Referral Partner, you can provide a more complete set of Telecom services to your customers. A customer who obtains more than one service from a vendor is more likely to stick with that vendor for additional products and services. So the more products and services your company offers, the more sticky to customers you will become. Through the very successful business model that T1Guy employs (Gaia's T1 expert), that is, real-time online T1 quotes, DS3 quotes, PRI quotes, MPLS quotes, Ethernet quotes, etc. based on location -- you can function like a full service firm.
