Datto is proud to start 2014 with its first industry award of the New Year. Providing hybrid cloud-based backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and business continuity solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, Datto is thrilled to earn the ‘2013 Best Channel Vendor’ award by Business Solutions Magazine (BSM). This marks Datto’s third consecutive “Best Channel Vendor” win.
“Being recognized by the VAR community is always humbling,” stated Austin McChord, Datto founder and CEO. “We’re constantly looking for ways to better serve the channel and our Partners. What’s most exciting is that Datto won in the two categories most important to VARs and MSPs, “Channel Friendly” and “Product Reliability”. We pride ourselves in not only providing top notch customer service, but also trusted customizable technology that fits a myriad of business needs.”
Datto is a channel-only vendor, making awards based on direct MSP and VAR voting extremely gratifying. Further, 2013 Datto research identifies the top three reasons Partners select Datto solutions are: Tech Support, Ease of Use and Installation, and Reliability.
In 2013, Datto won numerous awards for its support and solutions which speak directly to the VAR voting and feedback. Some of the awards earned last year were all the ASCII Awards – Best of Show, Best New Product, Best Cloud Solution, and Best Customer Support, as well as, Emerging Vendor and Top Innovator awards by CRN, Cloud Storage Excellence by TMC’s Cloud Computing, and Storage SMB All-Star by ChannelPro.
With more than 4,600 votes cast by value added reseller (VAR) subscribers, Datto received a total score of 4.39 out of 5 with high marks in the “Product Reliability” and “Channel Friendly” categories. Voters ranked Datto and fellow vendors on a scale of 0 to 5, from worst to best, in seven different technology categories – service/support, channel friendly, channel program, product features, product reliability, product innovation and adequate VAR margins. According to BSM, the top 5% of vendors in each surveyed category were selected as Best Channel Vendors.
