RingCentral, Inc., a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given RingCentral a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
RingCentral works with more than 20 master agents and distributors and currently has over 7,000 partners enrolled in the program worldwide across the US, Canada, UK, and EMEA. The partner program is designed to support partner sales with channel managers, subject-matter experts, a dedicated partner support line, partner portal, and operations support. Additionally, RingCentral’s Channel Harmony™: One to Infinity Program eliminates conflict between direct sales and partners, and is recognized as a major differentiator in the industry.
“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”
“We are dedicated to building an innovative, best-in-class partner program that supports our channel community with the right enablement and training they need to be successful,” said Lisa Del Real, Associate Vice President of Global Channel Programs and Operations at RingCentral. “We’re honored to be recognized for the third year in a row by The Channel Company for our continued enhancements to the RingCentral Partner Program. By empowering our partners, we’re able to provide a valuable experience for them and also achieve the mutual goal of satisfied customers and more impactful business outcomes.”
