It’s nice to feel appreciated, and here at Intronis we’re really feeling the love today. The 2112 Group, a business strategy firm focused on the IT channel, just released its list of the most admired channel vendors in 2014, and I was excited to see that Intronis made the top 25.
The list was based on a survey of 180 vendor partners from a wide-range of specialties. The providers were asked to name the three vendor channel programs they admired the most. No list of companies was provided. Just name the three vendors that you feel are doing it best in terms of productivity, execution, consistency, and loyalty to their partners.
It’s very encouraging to hear that Intronis came to mind for enough service providers to earn a spot in the top 25. It tells us we’re doing something right.
We’ve been working hard to be a real resource for our partners. In 2014, we introduced Intronis University, our free training and certification program, and launched Intronis Essentials, a library of tools and resources to help our partners have even more success selling backup and recovery services. We also rolled out new fixed-price plans designed to help MSPs simplify pricing for their customers and get better control over margins. And we’ll keep working to provide even more value to our partners in 2015!
