Syncsort Earns CRN's 5-Star Rating in 2013 Partner Program Guide

Ranking Identifies Syncsort's Partner Program Among the IT Channel's Most Elite

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Syncsort, a global leader in high-performance data protection solutions, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating, the highest ranking in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide. The 5-Star Partner Program classification recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide participants who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel.  The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel.

"The companies listed in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."

The list methodology is based on objective criteria that take into account each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.

"With a strategic focus on creating more value for our partners with our industry leading solutions, we have seen tremendous growth in partnerships and accreditations over the past few years," said Mike Kuehn, vice president, data protection sales, Syncsort. "Our 5-Star recognition in the CRN Partner Program Guide underscores our channel success and our dedication to our partners and customers. We are pleased to be named among the elite of the channel program this year."

The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on and the 5-Star Partners listings highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
