Partner Perspective on Doing Business with Cyxtera

Successful partner relationships are rooted in ease of doing business. Hear Cyxtera partners discuss why they do business with us.


2019 trends have illustrated how integral positive channel partner relationships are in making companies successful. According to Forrester, “75% of world trade flows indirectly.” The channel is growing exponentially, and indirect sales are becoming increasingly valued in the technology industry. Strong partner relationships are needed for companies to be able to scale, experience growth and tap into new verticals.

The key to partner relationships is engagement and frictionless interactions. According to a recent survey, partners’ number one deciding factor in determining which suppliers to further invest in is ease of doing business. Partners want to be working with companies who make their business transactions easier. To increase engagement, companies should use channel teams to create and nurture relationships and give partners access to programs and training to enhance enablement.

Cyxtera recognizes the value that partners bring to our go-to-market efforts and looks to the channel as a key component of our sales efforts. Through support and enablement material, Cyxtera partners have access to resources to grow their businesses. Keep reading to hear from some of our partners on their experiences.
