Channel Partner Program Recognized as Exceptional by Leading Channel Authority

We are proud to have been recognized by Everything Channel as one of North America’s top information technology (IT) vendors for its Channel Partner Program. We were also recognized with a five-star rating representative of an exceptional program.

Our partner program was awarded a Five-Star recognition in the mid-size category in Everything Channel’s 16th annual 2010 Partner Program Guide, acknowledging its commitment and strength of its programs for reseller partners, which include IT integrators, technology solution providers and consultants.

Everything Channel analyzed 130 vendor programs rating vendors’ responses to in-depth questions about their partner programs in the five elements of sales support, partner profitability, partner ecosystem development/management, partner communication/marketing, and demand generation. The five-star rating is bestowed on programs whose rating is among the elite based on company size.

“We have invested significant time and effort to create a program of incentives and resources for our Channel Partners. Our business thrives on the success of our partners – over 10,000 worldwide – and our program has been designed to reward those who work closely with us, seek to generate more businesses and, in many ways, become GFI product evangelists among small and mid-sized organizations. We are honored that Everything Channel has recognized the value of our partner program and we are committed to helping our partners do more business by giving them the tools and resources they require and reward them accordingly for their efforts,” CEO Walter Scott said.

Our newly enhanced Partner program empowers its members by providing the tools they need to increase their GFI market share, to drive sales and to improve their revenues. The program offers membership for every type and level of partner and is backed up with award-winning industry-leading solutions from GFI. The focus and flexibility on meeting individual needs of our partners is shown through competitive pricing, flexible licensing and dedicated sales resources.

“We are pleased to deliver to the Channel an exclusive list of the leading vendor channel programs with details about key technologies, program opportunities, and information on the hottest new program offerings,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “The quality of a technology vendor’s partner program determines how profitable its partners will be. For their commitment to their business partners and their efforts to build quality programs, we congratulate those recognized as this year’s Five-Star Partner Program winners for helping to drive greater revenue in the channel.”

The Partner Program Guide list and those companies recognized as five-star appeared in the March 29 issue of CRN magazine and is available online.
