TORONTO – March 24, 2014 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating for its channel partner program and named to the 2014 CRN Magazine Partner Programs Guide. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that deliver products through the IT Channel. CRN’s Partner Programs Guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive sales through the indirect IT Channel.
“2014 started with significant momentum as we continued to implement several new initiatives designed to strengthen and differentiate our channel partners,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “In addition to new sales, marketing and training programs, a top priority has been the rollout of our patent-pending Recovery License Model® (RLM) and our new recovery analytics engine which allows our partners to significantly increase business value to the customer. We anticipate this will be a game-changer for Asigra and its partners over the next 12 months.”
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.
Asigra’s Hybrid Partner Program enables partners to streamline backup service delivery while speeding time-to-revenue with improved margins. The company’s zero-conflict channel program is designed to level the playing field, allowing its diverse group of VAR, MSP and cloud service provider partners of any size to achieve top benefits based on contributions related to revenue growth, prospective sales opportunities, technical expertise, and Asigra brand promotion to expand awareness throughout their customer base.
“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.”
