Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications and collaboration platform provider for the modern global enterprise, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has awarded Fuze a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs offered by the top IT products and services suppliers. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that empower the solution providers in their channel with the best partner program offerings.


To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, 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.


“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 that 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.”


“As today’s workforce is increasingly distributed and the workplace can be just about anywhere, the demand for global, seamless communications and collaboration tools has become paramount. Fuze is proud to partner with solution providers and other trusted advisors to enable customers to achieve their digital transformation goals,” said Chris Doggett, Chief Sales Officer, Fuze. “CRN’s 5-Star rating recognizes our dedication to and investment in channel partners who fuel enterprise efficiency and productivity across entire workforces in today’s modern enterprise.”


Fuze continues to enrich and expand its Global Partner Program (GPP) to address the needs of an increasing number of enterprise customers that are moving their business communications and collaboration solutions to the cloud. Fuze empowers its partners to deliver a reliable communications and collaboration platform to customers through comprehensive training, certifications, dedicated internal headcount, funds, and streamlined back-end processes. The GPP also enables partners to cross-sell their services as part of the Fuze deployment to boost renewal rates and add business value by strengthening and accelerating the implementation process.


The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg. Fuze is also participating at the 2019 Channel Partners Conference and Expo in Las Vegas from April 9-12.
