Kirkland, WA, March 17, 2014 – Acumatica, the fastest-growing leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, announced today that it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide.
The annual directory of 5-Star ratings in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
Christian Lindberg, VP of Partners and Solutions at Acumatica, said: “It is an honor to be awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN’s 2014 Partner Program Guide. The team here at Acumatica has worked tirelessly to establish a robust partner program, and getting named to the list for the first time is a satisfying validation of our efforts. Thanks to our global partner network for going all in to help make our partner program such a success!”
Lindberg himself was named to CRN’s 2014 Channel Chiefs list earlier this year, a nod to his work driving channel sales and growth within Acumatica while evangelizing the importance of the channel.
Acumatica’s global network of more than 270 partner organizations includes top resellers in the United States and Asia such as SWK Technologies, ISM, and SAI. Acumatica sells exclusively through its recruited best-in-breed partners.
Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill said: “We are proud of this award as it shows a maturation of our partner program. We very much appreciate the recognition and will continue to strive to improve from here until we have the best Partner Program in the business applications market segment.”
He added: “Acumatica is 100-percent partner channel, and we intend to keep it that way. We are devoted to our channel because we cannot succeed without them. Together with our partners, we will become the cloud-based ERP solution of choice for small and medium-sized businesses.”
“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 very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
To determine the 2014 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.
The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
