For Immediate Release
CRN Recognizes TreeHouse Reseller View PRM Customers for Offering Solution Providers Industry Leading Partnering Elements for Channel Success
Salt Lake City, Utah — April 6, 2011 — TreeHouse Interactive™ (www.treehousei.com), the technology leader in SaaS-based partner relationship management (PRM) and marketing automation platform (MAP) solutions, today announced that several customers using its Reseller View PRM solution – Blue Arc, Dot Hill, and SGI – have been honored with CRN magazine's 5-Star Partner Program award for their outstanding channel efforts.
BlueArc® Corporation, the leading independent file storage provider at scale, is a longtime TreeHouse customer.
This accolade is a true testament to BlueArc's reputation of providing channel partners with the tools they need to better meet customers' at scale needs, said Bridget Warwick, senior vice president of marketing.
We strive to provide our partners with a competitive advantage by providing innovative tools and technical support that position our valued channel partners for success. TreeHouse Reseller View is an important part of our strategy to make our partners successful.
Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq: HILL), a leading provider of Unified Virtual Storage and SAN storage solutions, was recognized for the second consecutive year by CRN for its commitment to the channel and breadth of program offerings and services.
The main focus of our Connections program is partner profitability, said David Zimmer, vice president of worldwide channel sales and marketing.
When our channel partners succeed so do we, and TreeHouse understands the intricacies of providing the tools and services needed to make our partners profitable. Reseller View automates many of the manual processes associated with managing our channel program so that we can focus on the higher-value services that are important to our partners.
SGI, a trusted leader in technical computing, was also a second-time 5-Star award winner.
SGI is committed to providing unparalleled support to channel partners through our award-winning Channel Network Program, said Alison Ryan, vice president of channel sales at SGI.
We are delighted that our efforts have been recognized with a 5-Star rating for a second year. The program is designed to protect profits through strong opportunity registration, lead passing and other incentives for partners who invest with SGI. The use of technology is key to facilitating these processes and TreeHouse Reseller View has proven to be an invaluable resource that streamlines these and other logistics to make partner participation as effortless as possible.
CRN's review of applications revealed that vendors are placing greater emphasis on working with the VARs they already have, rather than recruiting additional resellers, and providing the help solution providers need to grow their businesses and expand into new areas.
Our customers understand that to have a successful channel, they need to be committed to the strategic elements of deepening partner relationships. Reseller View helps them manage the foundational aspects of their partner programs in an efficient, automated manner so they can focus on the initiatives that deliver high value, said Erich Flynn, CEO, TreeHouse Interactive.
While Reseller View provides an industry-leading foundation for success, it is the talent, expertise and commitment to partners that has earned these companies industry recognition for their channel programs over competitors. We congratulate all of them.
