Intermec Receives 5-Star Rating in CRN's 2011 Partner Programs Guide28 March 2011 EVERETT, Washington, USA
Annual guide identifies the IT channel's most elite vendor partner programs.
EVERETT, Wash., Mar 28, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Intermec today announced that it has been honored with a 5-star rating in CRN's 2011 Partner Programs Guide. CRN's Partner Programs Guide rating serves as the definitive list of vendors who have robust partner programs or products that service solution providers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes the vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.
Intermec, whose PartnerNet Channel program consists of more than 1,100 North American partners, completed a full redesign and launch of their PartnerNet Channel program in 2010, driving greater predictability, focus and investments into Intermec's channel. The company also completed a build-out of a robust SalesForce.com infrastructure to improve Intermec's Channel engagement and administrative flow.
"We take great pride in creating successful partner programs and strategies to further strengthen the total solution offered to our customers, and see it as a tremendous recognition to be awarded a 5-star rating on such a prestigious list," said Scott Anderson, Intermec Vice President of Global Channels. "Moving forward we will continue to evolve our strategy and policies to further embrace, enable and drive continued growth through our invaluable network of VARs and ISVs."
"The companies listed in the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today. Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue," said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for Everything Channel's CRN.
The 2011 Partner Programs Guide listing will be featured on CRN.com and in the March 28th issue of CRN.
