ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 9, 2019 – Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Alaris a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
“Our partners are critical to our success,” said Don Lofstrom, President & General Manager, Alaris. “This acknowledgement by CRN validates our approach to helping our partners expand, connect and grow their businesses. We do this by offering them access to world-class information capture solutions along with the tools and training they need to be profitable in today’s competitive marketplace.”
Through the Alaris Partner Program, solution providers can expand their offerings to include the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem, a powerful combination of best-in-class document scanners, information capture software and services. Partners also have access to sales enablers and demand generation programs.
“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”
Earlier this year, CRN named Alaris’ Maia Mosillo, Marketing Director, U.S. & Canada Region to its prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs.
