MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — April 9, 2015 — SOTI Inc.,the world’s leading provider of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy management,today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
This recognition continues the momentum SOTI’s channel program has gained since the launch of its new SOTI Altitude Partner Program last year. The award-winning program is built with differentiated enterprise mobility management solutions, a dedicated reseller sales and technical support team, partner acceleration programs, joint marketing programs, a robust partner portal, aggressive reseller discounts, and deal registration programs. Additional program highlights include out-of-the-box, customizable lead generation kits, social media support, co-brandable collateral, and a broad range of training including both technical and solution-based programs.
To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, 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 a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
Last year, SOTI announced a revamped global channel program, the SOTI Altitude Partner Program, designed to provide lucrative opportunities and sales enablement for the IT channel to take advantage of the growth in enterprise mobility, which is quickly evolving into the nerve center of enterprise IT. SOTI's more than 1,700 OEMs, distributors, resellers, and technology integration partners, enable mobility solutions for businesses around the world.
“We are honored to be recognized with the 5-Star rating by such a distinguished channel authority as CRN,” said Shash Anand, SOTI VP of Strategic Alliances. “As mobility is transforming into the nerve center of IT, the channel community is looking to partner with a vendor that unleashes the endless mobility possibilities to their customers. SOTI’s ability to tie together devices, operating systems, industries, and workforce enablement from the shop floor to the top floor unites the ability for our partners to deliver differentiated solutions while implementing a strategic mobility program. This recognition spotlights our commitment to working with our channel community to help them grow their business in this era of the mobile workforce, providing them with the necessary differentiation, tools, expertise, and growth opportunities.”
