Annual guide recognizes the very best channel partner programs in the market
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – STORServer, a leading provider of proven data backup solutions, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
Selling exclusively through the channel, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges. The STORServer Enterprise Backup Appliance (EBA) 2202 recently received the only “Best in Class” designation in analyst firm DCIG’s 2014-15 Integrated Backup Appliance Buyer’s Guide. In addition, STORServer models took seven of the top 10 positions in the Guide.
To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognize the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
“STORServer’s Channel Partner Program was designed to help resellers quickly solve their customers’ data backup and recovery challenges while differentiating the reseller from the competition,” said Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer. “Customers need proven data backup solutions to ensure the viability of their businesses. By working with STORServer, resellers can become their trusted data backup partner while saving them time and money.”
The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
