WALNUT, Calif. – March 25, 2013 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions today announced it has once again been named to CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel. The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor’s investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.
For 25 years, ViewSonic has supported the channel across a range of vertical markets, consistently ensuring its programs are aligned with channel priorities. ViewSonic’s Finch Club program offers resellers streamlined access to resources to grow their businesses. The program features exclusive tailored pricing and promotions, targeted product training webinars, VIP customer support, and more extensive sales rewards programs and contests.
“The companies listed in CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel’s CRN. “The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership.”
“In addition to ViewSonic’s diversified product portfolio, we take great care in providing our partners with the opportunities and resources they need to grow their businesses via our Finch Club program,” said Sally Wang, vice president of product marketing at ViewSonic. “We are honored that Finch Club is again recognized among the elite vendor partner programs across the channel, and we thank our valued channel partners for their continued loyalty.”
The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
