ChannelPro is Proud to Announce its 2019 Readers’ Choice Award Winners

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB cast their votes for the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations with the most SMB- and partner-friendly IT solutions, services, or programs in the channel today

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB and the ChannelPro Network were invited to participate in the IT channel’s only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes for the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations with the most SMB- and partner-friendly solutions, services, or programs in the channel today, via the publication’s website. For each of the categories, readers were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations.

The multiple-choice survey, which provided space for write-in responses, was fielded during the first quarter of 2019 and drew participation from more than 900 channel VARs, MSPs, integrators, system builders, and IT consultants. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.

“All year long our readers rely on partnerships with vendors, distributors, and professional associations to help them grow their bottom line. We look forward to this time of year when our readers give recognition to the brands they rely on most,” says Michael Siggins, president and publisher of ChannelPro-SMB and the ChannelPro Network. “These results give us a unique indicator of the most trusted brands that power the channel today.”

  •     Ingram Micro – Best cloud computing marketplace, best catalog, and more
