Andrew Humphrey, Net2Phone

ChannelNEXT attendees have voted and the winner for the ChannelNEXT Central Lion’s Den is Net2Phone by Andrew Humphrey. CONGRATULATIONS! WELL DONE!  The vendor with the most votes wins and gets an award and bragging rights. While there is only one top spot, everyone who enters the Lions’ Den have our applause and respect because it’s not easy to do. The Lion’s Den has proven to be an effective and enjoyable way for channel partners to explore many vendors in a short amount of time to see if there is a fit.

We also gave out a great prize draw to thank the voters for participating. The winner for the $500 cash prize was Steve Radonic, of CloudSpace.
