DENVER, April 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pax8, the leader in cloud distribution, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the company’s Cloud Wingman Partner Program a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

“For two consecutive years, we have delivered the highest echelon of partner programs to MSPs,” said Ryan Walsh, chief channel officer at Pax8. “As the only distributor to offer a program of this caliber, Pax8 has built its value on offering MSPs a simplified approach to complicated technology solutions. Hundreds of MSPs join Pax8 each month because of the award-winning Cloud Wingman Partner Program and the benefits we provide that enable MSPs to automate, profitably grow with cloud solutions, and scale.”

To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’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 Cloud Wingman Partner Program gives MSPs access to full quote-to-cash support, simplified billing, automated provisioning, enablement training, leading PSA integrations, access to best of breed vendors, resources, and more. Pax8 offers the tools and simplified approach that empowers MSPs to go-to-market effectively with cloud solutions.

“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”
