Annual guide recognizes the IT channel’s top partner programs
Petaluma, CA (April 02, 2018) – Intelisys Inc., a ScanSource company and the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor, has announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has once again recognized Intelisys in its annual Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel.
To compile the guide, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
“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 Program Guide helps them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”

Unique financial resources—collectively the Partner Investment Program, which has loaned more than $9 million to its Sales Partners to help them expand their businesses, and the Advanced Commissions Program, which allows partners to receive commissions in as few as 15 days from contract acceptance—are available to Intelisys Sales Partners, enabling them to grow and invest in their businesses.
Intelisys Cloud Services University, with a curriculum built exclusively for channel sales professionals, offers partners access to self-paced education and certification.
