ChannelPro: The Insider’s Guide to SMB is proud to announce the 2012 ChannelPro SMB All-Stars.
The ChannelPro SMB All-Stars, the first of its kind in the channel, is a professional guide created by channel pros for channel pros serving clients in the SMB marketplace. Comprised of vendors, professional associations, and distributors, the SMB All-Stars guide highlights the partners ChannelPro-SMB readers go to for SMB-specific solutions and business development programs to help them thrive in today’s fast-paced business environment.
“Our readers are experts at identifying which vendors and distributors offer the tools and solutions to help them best address the needs of their SMB clients,” says Cecilia Galvin, executive editor of ChannelPro-SMB. “Readers will help grow this guide over time to provide their peers with a kind of ‘Angie’s List’ of strategic, vetted channel partners.”
The 2012 ChannelPro SMB All-Stars guide, in print on heavy-stock paper and online as an interactive directory this month, is organized into approximately 30 categories and represents more than 140 vendors, associations, and distributors. Partner program information is included to assist channel pros who wish to learn more about each company’s partner benefits.
Also in October is additional coverage of vendors with solutions that are purpose-built for SMBs. The “All-Stars of Tomorrow” article in the print edition precedes the inaugural All-Stars guide and showcases cool emerging vendors that are not on ChannelPro-SMB’s All-Stars list yet, but likely will be there soon.
Organizations that made the All-Stars list were aggregated from readers during our awards process, targeted online surveys, and year-long editorial coverage. ChannelPro-SMB’s constituents will continue to contribute to this unique SMB company guide.
Over time ChannelPro-SMB will introduce other SMB All-Stars, be they channel luminaries, distinctive solutions, or successful MSPs and VARs. These sections will likewise receive special treatment in print and online and be added to the SMB All-Stars directory.
