Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a $1.5 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, and Wanify, a managed services provider (MSP) delivering SD-WAN solutions, today announced a strategic partnership wherein Granite will operate Wanify’s managed SD-WAN services for its small and medium business (SMB) and enterprise customers.
Under the terms of the agreement, Granite will provide managed network services for Wanify customers while Wanify focuses on customer acquisition. Since Granite and Wanify both leverage VMware VeloCloud SD-WAN solutions, the transition, which took place July 1, has been seamless.
Wanify customers also get instant access to Granite’s support infrastructure, network assets, network operations center (NOC) and solutions suite.
“Granite’s core strength is bringing enhanced support to multilocation customers. Wanify and its customers are now able to leverage Granite’s 24/7/365 support resources, including our world-class NOC,” said Granite Vice President of Channels Charlie Pagliazzo. “Plus, Wanify’s customers can take advantage of Granite’s full suite of products to further consolidate communications and connectivity services under one managed services provider.”
The expanded relationship between Granite and Wanify is an evolution of an already successful partnership centered on meeting the complex needs of multilocation customers.
“We are so excited to join forces with Granite Telecommunications on our SD-WAN practice,” said Wanify Co-Founder and Partner Brian Robertson. “Granite has proven to be a great partner and has helped us get to the next level with our clients.”
Wanify CEO Nick Prosser said that Granite’s customer-centric culture has helped the partnership mature. “There’s so much to like about Granite -- from their company culture and ability to execute on complex solutions to their commitment to customer satisfaction. Wanify always has shared these core values, so this deal really is a natural fit.”
In addition to leveraging each firm’s core competencies to better serve and grow Wanify’s customer base, the partnership strengthens Granite’s nationwide base of VeloCloud-powered managed SD-WAN customers.
Wanify simplifies wide area networking for businesses by leveraging the marketing-leading VMware VeloCloud SD-WAN solution, the best pricing for best-of-breed bandwidth, world-class customer service and solution management. For more information, visit http://www.wanify.com.
