Citrix says it has been awarded a 5-star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers and provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. Citrix has been designated a 5-Star rating in both CRN’s Storage and Security programs.
The award-winning Citrix partner program enables channel partners to provide exceptional delivery of best-in-class mobility, virtualization and networking solutions to meet the demands of customers seeking new ways to work better through state-of-the-art, secure mobile workspaces. Citrix programs, training and resources help partners drive higher customer satisfaction, confidence and loyalty.
Citrix continues to evolve its partner program with steady advances of innovative reward programs, solution-based certifications, marketing and sales enablement, and industry-leading conferences such as Citrix Summit and Citrix Synergy. Citrix designs programs to strengthen both technical and sales expertise and allows partners to identify and accelerate future growth opportunities, priming the entire partner’s organization for success. Partners can manage their business with Citrix and keep abreast of program enhancements by accessing information and tools through Citrix Partner Central.
To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, 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.
According to Tammy Richards, Citrix Managing director of worldwide channels “Citrix invests heavily in developing and evolving our programs to support our partners’ continued growth” She also said that “We measure our success by our partners’ success. We are proud to receive the 5-Star Partner Program status in the 2015 CRN Partner Program Guide as it reflects the strength of our ongoing investment in partner programs.”
“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
The 2015 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online.
