Infor Awarded 5-Star Rating from CRN

Infor Awarded 5-Star Rating from CRN Annual Guide Identifies IPN as Elite Partner Program

NEW YORK -  Apr 01, 2013

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that it has been named to the CRN Partner Program Guide and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. 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. CRN bases the rating on each vendor's investment in offerings like marketing and sales assistance programs, as well as overall partner profitability, to recognize an exclusive subset of the listed providers.

"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," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "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."

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 in India, China, Russia, Middle East, and the Americas.

"Infor's goal is to recruit quality partners with vertical market expertise to support our industry-specific offerings," said Jeff Abbott, vice president, Global Alliances and Channels, Infor. "Providing our partners with the resources they need is paramount because Infor recognizes their importance to our overall business strategy.  We are honored to receive this acknowledgement from CRN and hope that it will help us to recruit more valuable partners around the world by highlighting the investment we continue to make in our program."

The 2013 Partner Program Guide is featured on, and the 5-Star Partners list will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue.
