AVANT Doesn’t Call it “Special Forces Summit” for Nothing
Five9 recently joined the annual AVANT Special Forces Summit in Phoenix, an event featuring keynote speakers, breakout sessions, live demos, and content to help Trusted Advisors enhance their expertise, evolve their business, and drive revenue forward. This year's Summit hosted more than 1,500 Trusted Advisors and vendor sponsors focused on educating attendees on bleeding-edge IT solutions and services; as a provider and proud sponsor, Five9 had the privilege of participating in two breakout sessions on the red-hot CX and AI spaces.
AVANT recognized Five9 with two highly sought-after partner awards at the Summit:
#1 CCaaS Supplier and #5 Overall Top Vendor. At a separate ceremony in September, we were named AVANT’s EMEA Vendor of the Year. Each of these awards is noteworthy in its own right, and to receive all three in one year – within one month! – is especially gratifying for the Five9 team, and we’re excited to be partnering so successfully with AVANT.
Securing these awards is especially impressive as AVANT and Five9 have only been partnered for four years. The impressive growth and strength of the relationship is evidence of the dedication from both the Avant and Five9 Channel teams, as well as the two companies’ ability to execute frictionlessly to deliver Joyful CX. With more than 300 suppliers in the AVANT portfolio, we could not achieve this success without significant channel harmony, intent, and collaboration across both teams.
“This year at Special Forces Summit, AVANT awarded a select group of companies and individuals who are consistently working to innovate and disrupt the channel to stay ahead of the rapid pace of change. Five9 is a prime example of this, and we were so excited to recognize their valued partnership and achievements over the past year.” -Samantha Zuniga, VP of Supplier Engagement
“Five9 is proud of our commitment to strong partnerships in the channel. We align our vision with partners who understand the power of customer experience, and AVANT is a shining example of just such a partner. We are grateful for the recognition of our global relationship and are determined to continue delivering and winning with AVANT and its incredible community of high-value trusted advisors!”
-Jake Butterbaugh, SVP Global Partner Organization
We’re honored to receive the awards and recognition from AVANT, and we salute AVANT for their tireless dedication to their Trusted Advisors and vendor partners. Five9 helps AVANT deliver on their mission to keep their partners ahead of the curve, to see around corners, and to stay on the bleeding edge of technology. Along with the AVANT Trusted Advisor community, Five9 looks forward to bringing Joyful CX to our mutual customers and growing our partnership and success in the coming years.
