—Raritan’s Partner Advantage Program recognized as exceptional by leading channel authority—
SOMERSET. N.J., March 29, 2010 —Raritan today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel as one of North America’s top information technology (IT) vendors for its Partner Advantage Program. For the third consecutive year, Raritan was recognized for its exceptional partner program and awarded the highest rating of five stars.
Raritan’s five-star recognition in the small company size category, acknowledges its commitment to the channel and strength of its programs for reseller partners, which include IT integrators, technology solution providers and consultants.
“It is an honor to have the accomplishments of our partners and our Partner Advantage team recognized by the well-respected industry experts at Everything Channel,” said Gary Marks, Raritan Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Raritan is committed to our partners’ success, and together we are committed to providing customers with innovative solutions that help better manage their IT infrastructures and resources in order to deliver business value.

We also will continue to look for innovative ways to provide our partners with the tools, resources, training and support needed to achieve success.”
Research for the 2010 Everything Channel Partner Program Guide and the Five-Star Partner Program rating was conducted by Everything Channel’s research department. Everything Channel analyzed 130 vendor programs rating vendors’ responses to in-depth questions about their partner programs in the five elements of sales support, partner profitability, partner ecosystem development/management, partner communication/marketing, and demand generation. To ensure fair comparisons, companies were placed in one of four categories based on company size (Enterprise, Midsize, Small and Emerging). Questions from each section were scored individually and weighted appropriately. The Five-Star Partner Program rating recognizes the elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. The Five-Star rating is bestowed on programs whose overall rating is among the elite based on company size.
“We are pleased to deliver to the Channel an exclusive list of the leading vendor channel programs with details about key technologies, program opportunities, and information on the hottest new program offerings,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “The quality of a technology vendor’s partner program determines how profitable its partners will be. For their commitment to their business partners and their efforts to build quality programs, we congratulate those recognized as this year’s Five-Star Partner Program winners for helping to drive greater revenue in the channel.”
