Skokie, Illinois, UNITED STATES

CHICAGO, April 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nerdio, a pioneer in cloud IT automation, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Nerdio 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.

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.

Nerdio’s Partner Program is expressly designed to give cloud service providers (CSPs) a low-cost, accelerated path to maximizing revenue opportunities in an explosive-growth market, and alleviate the challenges they face in today’s market of lower margins, higher operating costs, and increasingly demanding clients. By standardizing IT into neatly packaged offerings, Nerdio empowers its partners to rapidly enter the advanced cloud services market, move prospects off the dime, and deploy to customers from day one.

In addition to healthy margins, Nerdio offers its partners a customized array of marketing and sales support services so they can maximize their competitive edge. Each Nerdio partner works with a dedicated partner manager to devise a personalized strategy for growing their business, hand-tailored to their individual needs and at no extra cost to them. This includes components such as lead generation, email marketing, co-branded collateral, joint webinars, go-to-market strategic counseling, and much more. Nerdio partners also get exclusive access to the Nerdio Partner Portal, which has deal registration functionality along with a variety of ready-made marketing and sales collateral.

“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.”

“We’re delighted to receive this prestigious designation from CRN, and appreciate their recognition of our unwavering commitment to our partners,” said Paul Guerin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Nerdio. “We’ve been laser-focused on helping our partners maximize recurring revenue opportunities and accelerate their business by addressing their real needs through a combination of technology and much-needed marketing and sales support.”
