Atlanta, GA, April 12, 2016 - Stonebranch, a modern workload automation solution provider that simplifies mission-critical IT business processes, announced today that CRN® a brand of The Channel Company, has given Stonebranch a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
The Stonebranch Partner Program was designed to deliver all the tools and resources partners need to be successful. Coupled with a flexible business model and attractive incentives, the program met the 5-Star criteria and is launching partners rapidly into to new markets and industries. Partners have direct access to the Company's presales, services and support organizations that not only helps shorten ramp time for new partners, but also enables true collaboration in serving our mutual customers.
"Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit."
"We are thrilled to receive this award from CRN, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the Channel," said Detlef Purschke, CEO of Stonebranch. "We've made significant investments in sales enablement, product training and marketing in the last twelve months, and it's paying off. Our partners are more productive than ever and we are better able to reach our most important goal of delivering the highest degree of Return on Automation for our customers."
The 2016 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the February issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
