In the July Partner Update video, Jared Pangretic, SVP of Sales, offers some updates on our acquisition of Resello, telling us it will soon be transitioning its brand and image to align with the Pax8 brand. In addition, its regional websites will see some tweaks as well, including localized vendor listing, visual changes, and more.

 

Jared also talked about how Pax8 will serve as a hub for all things Microsoft Inspire, including live, daily updates, and session summaries from Microsoft’s largest partner event of the year.

 

He closes out the video with some fun news and additional vendor updates.
