We are very excited to announce that today Extreme Networks has been awarded a 5-star rating in CRN’s 2017 Partner Program Guide! CRN’s Partner Program Guide offers solution providers the information they need to evaluate the IT vendors they already work with or are considering partnering with. The goal is to help solution providers determine what vendor can help them best meet their business goals.
This is exciting news because we made significant enhancements to the Extreme Partner Network over the past year to ensure our partners had new ways to improve customer experiences while ultimately driving new revenue streams and capitalizing on their investments. These enhancements included our Cloud Specialization Program, which is designed to empower partners to enhance their cloud solution skillset and provide additional incentives to deliver ExtremeCloud™ to customers, and our Cloud Managed Services Program, which incentivizes and rewards partners for building and selling their managed services around ExtremeCloud. We also added a broadened solution set to the program following our acquisition of Zebra Technologies’ WLAN business, which enables partners to sell tailored solutions to more customers. Finally, we have improved our partner portal which is now a one stop shop for our partners.
We are honored to be recognized and included as a top vendor for the fourth consecutive year. Additionally, the 5-star distinction reflects our strong commitment to partner success in an effort to reward and create differentiation in the market for all our partners. We’re looking forward to continuing our channel momentum through the remainder of the year!
