Awards highlight the products, technologies, services, and programs that best fit the requirements of SMBs and the channel pro organizations that serve them.

ChannelPro: The Insider’s Guide to SMB, is proud to announce the 2014 ChannelPro Readers’ Choice Award winners.

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB were invited to participate in the channel’s only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes for the most SMB- and partner-friendly products, technologies, services, programs, and professional organizations in the channel today, via the publication’s website. For each category, readers were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations.

The multiple-choice survey, which provided space for write-in responses, was fielded in Q1 and Q2 of 2014 and drew participation from more than 800 VARs, MSPs, systems integrators, custom builders, and IT consultants in the channel. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.

“Our readers are as passionate and selective about the tools they choose for their businesses as they are about the solutions they recommend to their SMB clients,” said Michael Siggins, Publisher of ChannelPro-SMB. “It was gratifying to see such a high level of participation in the survey on the part of our readers, which helps us compile the only rankings of this kind for SMBs and the channel pro organizations that serve them.”
