The editors of ChannelPro-SMB recognize vendors in the IT channel ecosystem that are making a significant impact on SMB IT professionals.

Raleigh, N.C. December 1, 2015 – The ChannelPro SMB All-Stars, the only awards program of its kind in the channel, recognizes a select group of hardware, software, or service vendors whose products, programs, and initiatives have made a significant impact on the SMB channel during the editorial calendar year. Revamped for 2015, the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars were selected by the ChannelPro-SMB editorial team and a panel of experts as the top innovation partners in the SMB IT channel ecosystem today.

What constitutes a significant impact? Some factors include:

  • Developing a new product or service that has market-changing potential
  • Creating a significant new channel program
  • Redefining the company with clear partner benefits
  • Making bold business moves that positively impact SMB resellers
  • Making a market shift from enterprise to SMB, with products purpose-built for SMBs
  • Leveraging an acquisition(s) to provide enhanced opportunities for partners and additional functionality for their customers

The All-Stars list varies in size annually, and has neither a minimum nor maximum length.

“Through the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars awards process, our editors took into account feedback from a panel of outside experts and channel pros and their own year-long editorial coverage to identify the vendors that help resellers, MSPs, and IT solution providers best address the needs of their SMB clients and their own businesses,” says Michael Siggins, vice president and publisher of ChannelPro-SMB.
