IT Service Management Technology Leader Recognized for Excellence in IT Channel Publication’s Annual Guide

DURHAM, North Carolina – April 26, 2017 SolarWinds MSP, a global leader in delivering comprehensive, scalable IT service management solutions to IT solution providers and MSPs, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in the IT channel publication’s 2017 Partner Program Guide. This is the ninth year in a row that the company has earned an elite 5-Star rating from CRN.

The annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services 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.

With more than 20,000 MSP partners worldwide, SolarWinds MSP has invested in its partners’ success with business-building services and resources, along with a number of recent technology enhancements, including SolarWinds® MSP N-central® 11, featuring integrated backup, recovery and advanced security.

“Helping our partners become world-class MSPs by winning more business and competing more effectively is a top priority for SolarWinds MSP,” said John Pagliuca, general manager, SolarWinds MSP. “Earning the 5-Star recognition is an important proof point of our focus on partner success, and we sincerely thank CRN for this honor.”

To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, 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.

“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”
