In a year that continued to challenge companies and partners alike, Collins Smee and her channel team were vocal advocates for our channel partners, representing their need for new services, products and support to meet new market demands.

This included the recent introduction of Xerox® Workflow Central, a secure, cloud-based software platform that provides access to workflow automation and digitization tools to help their customers adapt to a work-from-anywhere environment and includes capabilities for sharing, collaboration and storage. We also continue to grow our IT Services business for small and medium-size businesses.

Wilson Vega was named vice president of U.S. Agent and Velocity Channels in 2020 and set out to create a sense of team and community during a time when everyone, partners and colleagues alike, were working in a remote environment due to the pandemic. He and his team focused on skills development and programs to help partner grow revenue during an ever-evolving business environment.

This included refreshed authorized service provider program and updated service partners ordering system as well as an expanded library of marketing content to enable co-branded marketing for partner through automated marketing tools and do-it-yourself campaigns.
