“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”
The 2017 Partner Program Guide offers the information solution providers need to evaluate IT vendors they work with or are considering working with. The guide is based on detailed applications submitted by over 250 vendors, outlining all aspects of their partner programs. As part of the Partner Program Guide, CRN designates some programs as 5-Star Partner Programs.
“Our Channel Partners are a critical resource for us and have made it clear they value a combination of tools and solutions that can help set them apart from the competition and enable them to better serve their end-customers,” said Patrick Joggerst, GENBAND EVP of Global Sales and Marketing. “We’re fully committed to understanding their needs and enabling their success, and appreciate getting this recognition from a team as knowledgeable and well-versed in all things Channel.”
