Why a CRN 5-star rating matters to partners
The 2023 CRN Partner Program Guide offers essential information to solution providers such as managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators, and strategic service providers as they explore technology manufacturers’ partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs. The 5-star rating is awarded to the companies that go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable channel partnerships.
The 2023 CRN Partner Program Guide evaluated vendors based on program requirements and offerings, such as partner training and education, pre-and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication. These partner program benefits can set a vendor apart and play a key role in boosting long-term growth.
The 5-star rating is highly valued, as it recognizes programs that provide the most comprehensive range of incentives, resources, services, and benefits. CRN explains: “The rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide applicants who offer solution providers the best-partnering elements in their channel programs.”
