Zoom Video Stock: Will History Repeat?


Beth Kindig

Lead Tech Analyst

In my latest Forbes article, I revisited Zoom Video and where it might be headed in the foreseeable future. As I’ve stated last August, Zoom’s hardware-as-a-service products allows companies to replace legacy systems by consolidating software and hardware for one consistent experience. ServiceNow made headlines last year when they chose Zoom Phone to replace their business phone lines by stating, “Going forward, with the addition of Zoom Phone, we’re getting a head start on an even more robust experience with Zoom — one-touch communication and collaboration features, plus Zoom-connected conference rooms.”

Zoom’s partner program saw significant expansion in 2020. Partner sales bookings increased more than 7x year-over-year. Over 20% of international business bookings in the past quarter were driven by Zoom’s partner ecosystem, and Zoom’s Master Agent business was the fastest growing in history for Master Agents Avant and Intelisys.

Notable partnerships include carriers such as British Telecom, Lumen Technologies, and Orange Business Services. Zoom’s Distributor Partner Program includes Carahsoft Technology Group in the U.S., Nuvias Unified Communications in Europe, eLink Distribution AG in DACH, West Telco in LATAM and EMEA, SYNNEX/Westcon in LATAM, SB C&S in Japan, and FVC in the Middle East and Africa.

Master agents AVANT Communications and Intelisys, a ScanSource company, both reached $1 million in monthly recurring revenue (MRR) prior to the one-year anniversary of their partnerships with Zoom. Zoom also added six new Master Agent partners: AppSmart, Bridgepointe, eLink Distribution, PlanetOne, Sandler Partners, and Telecom Consulting Group (TCG).

Last year, Zoom saw growth of use cases in telemedicine, virtual events, and health and fitness after revamping its partnership program for independent software developers. The company supports more than 200 partners through its open API and SDK and expects to see further growth as new industries and markets are developed on top of Zoom.

Zoom also recently announced a multi-year partnership with Formula One, following a successful collaboration in 2020 on the Virtual Paddock Club, which offers VIP sports experiences. As part of the expanded partnership agreement, Zoom is working with Formula 1 to deliver unified communications and new business and hospitality experiences for on-site and virtual guests, including live updates from “legends of the paddock” and Paddock Club Business Lounges set up in Zoom Rooms.
