Talari Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2016 Partner Program Guide
Talari, the proven technology innovator and market share leader of Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions that help businesses perform brilliantly with the creation of a smart network that proactively manages capacity, quality and performance, announced that CRN has given Talari’s SMART Partner Program a 5-star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognises an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
The Talari SMART Partner Program is a pay-for-performance program focused on partner enablement, engagement and financial rewards, aimed to give channel partners who are looking for new business opportunities more incentive and support. The program better enables Talari’s partners in the SD-WAN markets and rewards those partners for their skill set and competency in supporting Talari solutions.
“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognise the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”
“Talari’s strategy with regard to partner base is to focus on building Pay for Performance models and programs with an emphasis on training and certifications, partner engagement and business planning, and partner growth,” said Michele Hayes, VP of Marketing at Talari. “Our goal is to have the right number of highly qualified, committed and loyal partners to reach our goals and our SMART Partner Program is aiding directly with this objective. We are glad that the program is continuing to receive the recognition it deserves.”
