On January 1st, we announced a number of significant changes effective May 1, 2010.  With the changes being made, there are several sales opportunities partners can take advantage of now before the changes take effect.

Please make sure that your partners are aware of the changes and challenge them to review the changes with their customer base.  These changes will affect all existing customers, therefore we will not be sending customer specific notifications via direct mail.  We have announced the change on CustomerSource and will include the information in Newsletters.  It is the partners responsibility to educate their customers.

The changes make a huge window of the opportunity for partners to sell both to their existing customer base as well as prospects.  It can be a huge revenue driver in the coming months.
