Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, is pleased to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named it a winner in the 2020 CRN Annual Report Card (ARC) Awards. CRN has recognized Tripp Lite for Managed and Cloud Services in the Power Protection and Management category.
Now in its 35th year, the CRN ARC Awards recognize and celebrate best-in-class vendors that are committed to driving channel growth and demonstrating outstanding channel performance. One of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry, the award acclaims Tripp Lite’s success and efforts in earning high solution provider satisfaction with the products and services it provides to channel partners.
Tripp Lite offers more than 5,000 products to support IT infrastructure in a wide range of applications, from desktop to data center to edge computing.
“It is an honor to be recognized by our channel partners for the support, products and services we provide,” said Michelle Wang, Tripp Lite’s Director of Marketing North American Channel. “We are always working to offer our partners the best resources possible to encourage their success and profitability. Our partner relationships are Tripp Lite’s top priority.“
More than 3,000 solution providers in North America were asked to participate in this year’s ARC survey to rate their satisfaction with more than 60 vendor partners. Survey participants scored vendors in 24 major product categories, based on their performance across four criteria: product innovation, support, partnership, and managed and cloud services. This invitation-only survey of each vendor’s top channel partners was conducted by The Channel Company’s research team.
“Developing a successful vendor-channel partner relationship is dependent on how well vendors can meet their channel partners’ expectations, and we’re thrilled to be able to recognize these vendors who go the extra mile to make sure they are delivering best-in-class products and program offerings to their channel partners,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s Annual Report Card not only offers tremendous insight into channel opinions of their vendor partners, but also provides vendors with actionable feedback that plays a pivotal role in shaping their channel strategy. Congratulations to the award winners and we look forward to honoring them at our XChange 2020 conference this August.”
Winners of the coveted 2020 CRN ARC Awards will be recognized in the ARC Winner’s Circle during The Channel Company’s XChange+ Virtual Experience taking place on August 20. Additional coverage of the CRN 2020 ARC results can be viewed online at crn.com/arc and will be featured in the October 2020 issue of CRN Magazine.
