Leading IT Channel Publication Names Managed Services Innovator to Elite Annual Guide Eight Years in a Row in Recognition of Partner Enablement, Leadership and Dedication

Ottawa, Canada - May 06, 2016 -  SolarWinds N-able, a global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) and service automation software, today announced it earned a 5-Star rating in the 2016 Partner Program Guide published by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. This is the eighth year in a row that SolarWinds N-able has received the prestigious 5-Star rating.

The annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products 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.

“At SolarWinds N-able, empowering and enabling our partners with world-class business resources and one of the most advanced managed services technologies on the market is a top priority—and a competitive differentiator that speaks volumes to our partners’ success,” said JP Jauvin, general manager, SolarWinds N-able. “Each year, earning the 5-Star designation underscores our dedication to our partners. Thank you, CRN, for recognizing our channel commitment.”

In the past year, the managed services innovator significantly advanced the SolarWinds N-able N-central® RMM platform with the release of enhanced automation, remote control, IT service management and help desk capabilities to fuel greater growth and profitability for partners. In addition, the company added new business resources—from pricing guides to technician runbooks and more—to help its managed service provider partners deliver a more powerful and profitable customer experience.

To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, 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.

“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”

The 2016 Partner Program Guide was featured in the February issue of CRN and is available online at
