ServiceKey Named to CRN's 2013 5-Star Partner Program Guide

5-Star designation in annual guide identifies the IT channel's most elite vendor partner programs

NORCROSS, Ga., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --ServiceKey today announced it has been named to CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel.  The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel.  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.


The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications. 

ServiceKey has created a partner program that meets the service requirements for scaled Solution Providers. With a zero dollar investment and zero quota requirement partners benefit from our 100% channel experience.  Partners also benefit from business development dollars and up to 50% increase on gross profit in a recurring revenue strategy.

"The companies listed in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."

"ServiceKey is honored to be recognized in having a 5-Star Partner Program for the third year in a row. This recognition proves that having 100% channel loyalty is essential in today's market. ServiceKey continues to raise the standards in programs for partners as well as service delivery. Our continued growth extends into Managed Services through our AzaService Platform, we are encouraged by the immediate success and momentum this new offering is bringing to our partners." said Angela Vines, President, ServiceKey.

The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
