"How Quest helps revolves around five tenets that define what it really means to be a trusted advisor as we go to market with our partners," continues Technology Partner Program Director Adam Burke. "Listen to customers to understand their strategy, goals, expectations, and constraints; Respond to each customer's needs with support and guidance - and on their terms; Always provide superior technical and management skills; Regard every customer engagement as part of a long-term relationship - and; neve forget: Each customer is unique, so each engagement must be specifically designed for them."


To determine the winner of Channel Partners 360°, companies created a "Partner Profile" that detailed how the applicant addresses the convergence of IT and telecom services and how the company creates business value for its customers. Channel Partners editors and an expert panel evaluated all Partner Profiles to determine the top 25 candidates that exemplify the Channel Partners 360° values.
