FAQs

What is Super9?

Super9 is an intensive cloud training program. The first Super9 training was launched in April 2016, with a group of nine elite Intelisys Sales Partners from nine different regions across the country. Currently offered in a variety of formats, the trainings focus on cloud business development skills, education, and resources at a standard never before seen in the channel. All trainings are designed to give channel sales professionals first-class insights into cloud services, and dramatically increase the probability of closing larger, more complex cloud deals. Complete with real life, actionable steps, attendees are coached by elite cloud minds at Intelisys and the top cloud providers in the world.

What are the different types of Super9 trainings?

We offer three different types of Super9 events:

Super9 Foundational

Super9 Foundational events consist of three days of intensive cloud compute technical and sales methodology training.

Super9 Convergence

Super9 Convergence is a three-day education conference. Attendees gather for education, tech deep dives, peer group meetings, and networking. The training is designed to bring the Intelisys and ScanSource Partner communities together, converging around the central theme of accelerating the growth of attendees cloud business.

Super9 Intensive

Super9 Intensive events are subject-matter deep dives. Current topics include the lucrative and tricky CCaaS and Security markets. Participation in this training enables attendees to confidently identify, position, and close big deals in the cloud contact center or security space.

Why should I attend a Super9 event?

Since its launch in 2016, the success of the Super9 training program has been nothing short of groundbreaking. After closing several large, complex deals as a direct result of the training, inaugural attendees dubbed their victories the “Super9 Effect”. Examples include:

  • One week after the first Super9 training ended, one attendee secured a 450-seat call center opportunity. The resulting $75,000 MRR deal was due, in large part, to one simple technique learned at the training. 
  • A mere five months after the first Super9 training, each and every company represented by the attendees increased their cloud orders by 60 percent.
  • Just weeks after attending the first Super9 training, one attendee closed the single largest site count sale in one Intelisys Super9 Supplier’s history. This brought the attendee’s company to within $50,000 of being a Gold Partner in under a year with Intelisys.
What is the cost associated with the trainings?

Super9 Foundational or Intensive

Super9 trainings are offered to attendees at no cost (at a value of $4,500). Participation in the trainings includes all meals, course materials, ongoing education, and access to the elite cloud minds at Intelisys and the top cloud providers in the world. Travel and accommodation costs are at the expense of the attendee.
