Zyxel Featured in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide

April 2, 2019

ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 2, 2019--Zyxel Communications announced today that CRN ®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Zyxel in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services.

To assemble the guide, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

The three-tier Zyxel Authorized Partner Program (ZAP!) provides solution providers with a comprehensive array of tools and resources to create and sell enterprise-class solutions that scale to meet the requirements and budgets of small- and mid-sized organizations. The feature-rich program is reserved for value-added resellers who sell networking and security products in North America and have a purchasing relationship with an authorized Zyxel distributor.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

“VARs are faced with the challenge of providing customers with enterprise-class solutions that meet stringent feature and budget requirements,” explained David Soares, Zyxel’s vice president of North American sales. “Paired with our best-in-class networking solutions, our partner program rewards VARs for their value added services and it also gives them the tools and the products that they need to provide the right solutions to their customers. Our partner program enhances profits made by our VARs and it helps them to grow their businesses.”

The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
