RALEIGH, N.C. (PRWEB) OCTOBER 02, 2019
The ChannelPro Network has named the recipients of this year’s ChannelPro SMB All-Star awards.
The only awards program of its kind in the channel, the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars recognizes a select group of IT hardware, software, or service vendors whose products, programs, and initiatives have made a significant impact on the SMB channel during the editorial calendar year. The ChannelPro SMB All-Stars were selected by the ChannelPro Network editorial team as the top innovation partners in the SMB IT channel ecosystem today.
What constitutes a significant impact? Some factors include:
- Developing a new product or service that has market-changing potential
- Creating a significant new channel program
- Redefining the company with clear partner benefits
- Making bold business moves that positively impact SMB resellers
- Making a market shift from enterprise to SMB, with products purpose-built for SMBs
- Leveraging an acquisition to provide enhanced opportunities for partners and additional functionality for their customers
The All-Stars list varies in size annually, and has neither a minimum nor maximum length.
New this year are two additional awards: a Lifetime Achievement All-Star award to Arnie Bellini, former CEO of ConnectWise; and a Not For Profit All-Star award to D&H Distributing, for its year-long, company-wide commitment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation serving its native Dauphin County, Pa.
“The SMB technology landscape is filled with vendors and distributors who keep us busy all year long covering new products, market initiatives, and partner programs,” says Rich Freeman, executive editor of the ChannelPro Network. “The winners of our annual All-Star awards, though, have set themselves apart from their peers by doing something that we believe deserves extra recognition.”
Editorial coverage includes the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars special feature in the October print and digital editions of ChannelPro-SMB magazine, as well as online coverage at ChannelProNetwork.com.
