AccessData Group, a leading provider of digital forensics, cyber security and e-discovery software, today announced it has been announced to CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel. The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel. The 5Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor’s investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.
Featuring partners including McAfee, HP, and Dell, the successful AccessData channel partner program offers competitive margin rates that are above typical rates for the sector. An Online Learning Center is offered for partners that includes dozens of training modules for AccessData’s complete line of products as well as live training and webinars. “Our program features exemplary marketing and service support at all stages of the customer lifecycle,” said Chad Gailey, Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales at AccessData. “We place a primary focus on this channel, and our partners have the chance to earn considerable revenue because we focus on providing them with market-leading technology and service.”
“The companies listed in CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, for UBM Tech Channel’s CRN. “The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership.”
The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
