SAN RAMON, Calif.— Jan. 28, 2021—Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading provider of the intelligent cloud contact center, today announced its inaugural Five9 Partner Sales Summit and Kickoff aimed at celebrating and strengthening its global partner ecosystem. The event will be held virtually during the company’s annual Sales Kickoff.

In 2020, Five9 saw exponential success and significantly grew the number of Technology, Channel and System Integrator partners globally - helping expand its overall partner ecosystem. The Five9 Partner Sales Summit and Kick Off will support the Company’s focus on partner success by helping align partners around a common goal, enable them on the Five9 differentiated value proposition, and ultimately help Five9 and its partners deliver business value for their joint customers.

This will include the launch of new ways to engage and connect with Five9 to help accelerate sales, marketing, and joint go-to-market activities. The Summit is designed to help partners learn and take advantage of the latest innovations Five9 has brought to market - including new IVA and Conversational AI capabilities that are now being integrated into the Five9 platform through the acquisition of Inference Solutions.

“At Five9, we believe that we are stronger when complemented by our vibrant partner community,” said Dan Burkland, President, Five9. “When we win together, our business opportunities are endless.
