Why Attend?

DRIVING INNOVATION IN WHITE LABEL UCaaS & COLLABORATION SINCE 2014

The Vectors 2018 Annual User Group Meeting (UGM) unites the SkySwitch family of reseller’s across North America for three inspiring days of innovation review, peer networking and specialized training sessions. The Skyswitch management team was uninamous about selecting this year’s conference theme of “Unite and Conquer.” Unity is strength and it is a very profound proverb meaning that ‘sticking together is a source of strength’. Only through Unity are we then able to Conquer the challenges and never ending obstacles lying before us in this very competitive cloud based business landscape.

The hundred’s of SkySwitch partners across the United States and Canada are exclusively invited to participate in the nightly festivities, daily focused training, relevant user and industry presentations. Vectors 2018 is also a valuable networking opportunity for you to strengthen connections with industry colleagues and the entire SkySwitch team. Compliance Solutions Inc. (CSI) has graciously sponsored the annual Monday Dinner Party this year located in the heart of downtown Nashville. So come to Nashville prepared to learn, share, engage and win a multitude of raffle prizes from some of the industry’s leading providers and global VoIP distributors.

“Vectors really gave me the opportunity to meet with my peers and share ideas and talk with them. I really have gotten a lot of benefits from being here. The SkySwitch team is great. SkySwitch has provided just about everything that I could ever ask for in a white label platform”

– Doug Haldane – Unicom Solutions

KEYNOTE SPEAKER 

Gunter Wessels, PhD., M.B.A., Practice General Manager, LiquidSMARTS

“Upselling, Cross Selling and Failure Recovery"

The topic for this year’s keynote speech was chosen to address a concern shared by every SkySwitch partner – how to sell more effectively.    Dr. Wessels and the team at LiquidSMARTS create timely, digestible and effective sales training programs.  This keynote speech will leave you with practical and actionable  techniques that you can use to sell more to your existing customers.  It will also chart a course that will allow you to ignite the sales process in your organization.

Panel Discussion

This year at Vectors, we welcome the first panel discussion forum to trigger an exchange of,

viewpoints among our reseller experts, your SkySwitch peers, with a series of prepared questions and interactive questions from the audience. In this session, we hope to gain a divergence of viewpoints from our panelists to create learning atmosphere for service and support best practices, the do’s and don’ts of selling and training, as well as maximizing profitability in the competitive UCaaS landscape. The panel will be announced prior to the event and if you are interested in sitting in on the panel, please fill out and submit the form to be considered.

“Vectors feels more like a family reunion than a conference. The other white label partners we used seemed to care more about their success than ours.  The thing I love about SkySwitch is they seem very interested in my success.  They recognize that my success is their success.  That is something I really appreciate”

– Jeff Hawkins-Telepath, Inc.
