Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced that it has received a 5-Star rating from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2021 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide provides a conclusive list of the most distinguished partner programs from leading technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs.
Schneider Electric has had a longstanding commitment to working with its reseller partners around the globe to ensure they have the tools needed to drive growth and success for their business while delivering value to their customers. This past year especially, the Schneider Electric team remained dedicated to working with partners to overcome challenges and ensure they had the support and tools needed to safeguard business continuity and meet customer needs in this critical time.
The mySchneider IT Solutions Partner Program, formerly the APC Channel Partner Program, differentiates in the market by providing the educational, collaborative, marketing and financial benefits partners need to succeed. The recently launched Edge Software and Digital Services Program is a game changer for partners ready to evolve beyond selling Schneider’s APC-brand industry-leading power protection portfolio. The program allows partners to capitalize on new opportunities and add more value for their customers by enabling them to establish their own managed power practice and providing key business enablers, incentives and training to help them stand out from the competition, deliver value and meet customer challenges.
“We recognize the importance of our channel partners and continue to work to provide programs and solutions that benefit their business. We’re very honored to be recognized with a 5-star rating in this year’s CRN Partner Program Guide and look forward to continue engaging and building our partner community in the years ahead,” said Shannon Sbar, Vice President, Channels, North America, Schneider Electric. “This past year was a challenging one, but we’ve remained steadfast in our mission to support our partner community and have evolved the mySchneider program based on their input to help partners grow their businesses and meet their customers’ changing needs.”
Given the importance of the IT vendor channel programs, Partners look to CRN to keep up to date on channel business topics and IT vendor programs that will directly impact their bottom line. Each year CRN develops its Partner Program Guide to provide the channel community with a detailed look at the partner programs offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies and distributors. Vendors are scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
“As innovation continues to fuel the speed and intricacy of technology, solution providers need partners that can keep up and support their developing business.” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide gives insight into the strengths of each organization’s program to recognize those that continually support and push positive change inside the IT channel.”
The 2021 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
