Ivanti, the company that unifies IT to better manage and secure the digital workplace, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Ivanti a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Programme Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programmes from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Programme Guide rating recognises an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programmes.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner programme based on investments in programme offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programmes and resources, sales support and communication.
The Ivanti Partner Programme drives partner enablement with an extensive set of sales, marketing and technical resources which include sales playbooks, battlecards and reference briefs as well as extended marketing and social selling resources and campaign starter kits. The programme offers dedicated programmes and incentives for Expert Solution Providers (ESPs), in four partner categories, National Sales Providers (NSPs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Alliance Partners and Distribution Partners. Partners are provided access to a customised partner portal and dedicated sales and technical training and certification programmes. ESP and NSP partners are also offered deal registration capabilities to maximise partner profitability.
“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Programme Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programmes and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognising the strongest and most successful partner programmes in the channel today.”
“With the release of our newly integrated partner programme earlier this year, Ivanti continues to activate, engage and enable diverse partners with the resources they need to build rewarding Ivanti practises,” said Reza Parsia, Vice President of Channel Sales, Ivanti. “We’re honoured to be recognised for the depth of our programme with a 5-Star rating by CRN. It underscores the continued focus we place on our partners and their contribution to our success.”
The 2018 Partner Programme Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
