The annual awards highlight the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations whose solutions, services, or programs best fit the requirements of SMBs and the channel pros who serve them.

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB were invited to participate in the IT channel’s only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes for the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations with the most SMB- and partner-friendly solutions, services, or programs in the channel today, via the publication’s website. For each of the 55 categories, 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 between February 26 and April 1, 2016 and drew participation from more than 500 channel VARs, MSPs, integrators, system builders, and IT consultants. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.
