Annual Guide Recognizes the IT Channel’s Top Partner Programs 

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection and hybrid cloud storage announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Acronis a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

The Acronis Partner Program supports resellers and distributors who drive the Acronis product portfolio through to customers. The program rewards partners with increased deal registration rates to help partners protect their deals and get the best margins in the market and rebates to support accelerated sales and market share of Acronis. The program also provides marketing development funds (MDFs) to partners who are committed to growing together with Acronis and gives free licenses to all partners so they can be the first to use Acronis technology. Other benefits include being displayed on partner locator, exclusive channel promotions, free sales and technical training and phone/chat support.

The Acronis Partner Program has three tiers, authorized, gold and platinum, to distinguish and reward a partner’s sales performance and marketing collaboration.
