Annual Guide Recognizes the IT Channel’s Top Partner Programs
Thousand Oaks, CA, April 1st, 2019 – Nexsan, part of the StorCentric group and a global leader in unified storage solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Nexsan a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
The Nexsan Channel Partner Program is designed to offer partners the tools, incentives and skills they need to work in a collaborative partnership. As part of this, Nexsan provides each partner with an extensive selection of add-on products and services, extensive training, robust profit margins, co-selling and pre-sales support and advanced marketing tools. Nexsan has recently enhanced the partner program with the development of the NEXCouncil Partner Advisory Program, which provides exclusive access to new technology initiatives and collaborative strategies to drive growth.
“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”
“The key to a healthy and successful partner program is to work in a close partnership. With having a 20- year history of providing award winning storage solutions to our partners, we value each partner and offer competitive deal registration opportunities, training and improved profit margins,” said Read Fenner, VP of Sales at Nexsan. “We are honored to receive the 5-Star rating Partner Program Guide and look forward to continuing our work in the channel.”
The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
