CRN has awarded Infor a 5-Star Partner rating in its 2013 CRN Partner Program Guide.
The 5-star designation is reserved for the IT channel's most elite vendor partner programs that provide resellers with robust resources for training, education and support.
Computer Resellers Network (CRN) bases the rating on each vendor's investment in offerings like marketing and sales assistance programs, as well as overall partner profitability.
"Our 2013 Partner Program Guide represents the best programs in today's market, and Infor stands out from the crowd in the level of quality and focus on the channel," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "Receiving the 5-star rating is about recognizing that a successful partnership is not solely based on supplying the technology, but about ensuring mutual benefits. Infor does this with the tools it provides partners through the Infor Partner Network."
From training and certification to marketing development funding, the Infor Partner Network (IPN) delivers the tools that channel partners need to grow their business with Infor products. Infor successfully formed 150 new reseller partnerships over the past year to further expand its reach around the world.
"Providing our partners with the resources they need is paramount because Infor recognizes their importance to our overall business strategy," said Jeff Abbott, vice president, Global Alliances and Channels, Infor.
