Our 2024 Zayo Partner Award Winners

New Partner of the Year: Technologent

When a satellite TV provider was in the market for new equipment with a co-managed solution, Technologent and Zayo worked together to seamlessly integrate solutions that would enhance the provider’s broadcasting capabilities. Using Zayo’s Managed Edge solution and Technologent’s expertise in IT management, we delivered a scalable and resilient solution tailored to the satellite TV provider’s unique demands. This collaboration signifies a significant milestone in our new partnership.

Most Innovative Partner: Advantage Communications

Advantage Communications uses its many differentiators including its proprietary platform for customer management and its unique relationships, particularly in the European and Canadian finance and technology markets. Together, Zayo and Advantage are tapping into new markets and using Zayo’s Managed Edge, DIA, Ethernet, Wavelength, and Dark Fiber solutions in new ways to win client deals. 

“We’re honored to receive this award. Our clients have very complicated global network environments that present tremendous challenges. Together, Zayo and Advantage have embraced these unique enterprise opportunities and have pioneered, innovated, and implemented compelling and enduring network solutions globally that continue to exceed our clients’ demanding expectations.  And we’re just getting started! – Steve Rome, Advantage’s Co-Founder & Chief Revenue Officer

Partner of the Year: Inflect

Inflect and Zayo partnered to create the industry’s first and only instant pricing offering for Dedicated Internet Access (DIA). Rather than waiting days or weeks to quote network services, Inflect’s Quote Tool allows near real-time procurement of network services. This allows customers to immediately see and compare terms for DIA such as access speed and contract length and instantly initiate the contracting process. Instant Pricing automates this process by connecting customers to Zayo services directly through an API integration with Zayo’s Tranzact platform,Zayo’s innovative online shopping and self-service platform, significantly reducing service delivery times.

With this outstanding partnership, Inflect and Zayo have revolutionized pricing strategies and structures for their clients and paved the way toward a more connected world.

“We are humbled to be named Zayo’s Partner of the Year.  Inflect’s mission is to drive frictionless transactions in the digital infrastructure industry through our marketplace and advisory.  Zayo is a fellow traveler on this journey, this award is a testament to our shared commitment to be of service to our mutual customers.
