Sponsored by Everything Channel, publishers of Computer Reseller News Magazine and ChannelWeb, which are read by millions of information technology (IT) reseller professionals, the "5-Star" ranking puts D-Link in the elite group of vendors with the best partner programs. As a 5-Star honoree, D-Link is listed in the media group's annual 5-Star Partner Program Guide debuting March 29 in CRN.
After surveying hundreds of IT solution providers and value-added resellers, D-Link received high marks for its ability to provide good, qualified leads, access to demo equipment and technical training, according to Everything Channel editors. In addition, vendor applications were evaluated by Everything Channel's Institute of Partner Education and Development who looked at overall operational performance and other factors.
"The quality of vendor partner programs reflects the true commitment they have to the thriving solution provider channel, and this year's 5-Star winners are truly the cream of the crop of channel-friendly vendors," said Robert Faletra, chief executive officer of Everything Channel.
"Earning Everything Channel's 5-Star rating reflects our dedication and commitment to our thousands of channel partners and their customers to provide the highest quality programs designed to make their job easier, more efficient and customer friendly," said Michael Fox, vice president of channel sales and North America channel chief for D-Link. "Our goal is to provide the tools, support and resources necessary to enable our reseller partners to better compete in the market."
"Among the features of D-Link's partner program are volume incentive rebates, marketing development funds, deal registration, bounty rewards, VIP loyalty rewards, a trade-in-trade-up program, demo equipment, test drive opportunities and much more," Fox said.
