The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. Several key factors aside from technology are assessed when considering what makes a successful channel program. This methodology takes into account investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
