From September 2013 to mid-October 2013, Business Solutions’ VAR subscribers were asked to rate their vendor partners on a scale of zero (worst) to five (best) in seven categories: service and support, channel-friendliness, channel program, product features, product reliability, product innovation and VAR margins. Unitrends scored a near-perfect 4.95 rating for its channel program and product reliability, followed by a 4.90 rating in all other categories.

After the numerical scores were tabulated, Business Solutions’ editorial staff applied an extra layer of evaluation to determine where there was a clear break between the best-in-class vendors and the rest of the pack.

“Peer recognition is a critical part of our partner eco-system here at Unitrends and underscores the depth of support we provide our partner community,” said Bob Gagnon, vice president of Channel Sales at Unitrends. “Our channel partners will continue to help us shape our partner program going forward and serve as the driving force of a highly-accelerated growth path in 2014.”
