VP Strategic Alliances recognized as 2015 CRN Channel Chief

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwired - Feb 23, 2015) - SOTI Inc., the world's leading provider of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy management, announced today that The Channel Company has named Shash Anand, VP of Strategic Alliances, as one of its 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential leaders in the IT channel business recognizes individuals based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.

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. Anand is responsible for leading a global channel team overseeing strategic relationships with SOTI's more than 1,700 OEMs, distributors, resellers, and technology integration partners, ensuring that they are properly supported. SOTI has grown its channel program significantly, and the CRN Channel Chiefs announcement recognizes Anand for his contributions.

"Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success."

In 2014, SOTI successfully collaborated with partners to have its EMM software pre-loaded on several manufacturers' devices for out-of-the-box provisioning and setup. SOTI also recently announced that more than 50 of the world's largest Android OEMs have integrated its EMM technology in their devices -- an achievement that serves to minimize fragmentation in the Android market and provide IT the deep management and security it needs to confidently allow Android devices in the enterprise.

"As a company that partners closely with its entire channel ecosystem to sell our enterprise mobility management solutions, it is important that we offer a flexible and supportive program for our partners that delivers opportunities for business growth that go beyond simple software sales," Anand said. "We are proud to be partnered with mobile-first channel partners who are undoubtedly committed to working with enterprises of all sizes and industries to deliver on the promise of mobility for profitability and business transformation. And I am honored to be recognized as a 2015 CRN Channel Chief, and am dedicated to the continued success of our partners around the world."
