For the third consecutive year, Kerio's Partner Program was honored with the CRN 5-star designation. CRN's prestigious 5-star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
"It is no surprise to me that Kerio has earned this designation. Kerio's Partner Advisory Council is yet another example of the value and importance Kerio places on its partner community and listening to what we need to be successful," Mark Williams, Chairman, Kerio Partner Advisory Council / CrunchIT.
In 2012, the demand for Kerio Cloud offerings was high among partners. In response, Kerio takes great care in offering cloud services that help, not hurt, our partners’ businesses. Our social collaboration platform, Samepage.io, features a referral program where partners commission on all referred customer transactions. With our cloud email offering, Kerio Connect, the hardware is completely managed by Kerio, but partners have administration rights so they can maintain control of the relationship with their customer.
As the Marketing Manager for Partner Programs at Kerio, I am particularly proud of this designation. Coming into Kerio, I entered what was already a stellar organization and well-established program. The Kerio team, from sales to engineering, work together to find solutions that best contribute to the success of our partners.
Over my past year with the company, I have become part of a team that continues to think about the way we work with partners. Already, we have launched a new partner forum to encourage feedback and communication amongst our community. Additionally, our newly formed Partner Advisory Council meets regularly to provide feedback on upcoming program changes, ideas and market trends.
Not only is this award a reflection of Kerio, it is a reflection of the stellar community of partners that makes up our company. Without you, Kerio Partners, we would not be where we are today. Behalf of the entire organization, thank you!
