SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 24, 2015 – Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting software, today announced the Intacct Partner Program has once again been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide from The Channel Company. This is the third consecutive year Intacct received the top rating.
This annual directory is widely considered the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
Taylor Macdonald, Intacct’s Vice President of Channels, and his team have built Intacct’s channel program into the envy of the industry. Intacct’s program is designed to build a network of Intacct partners that deliver comprehensive, high quality services, support, and software to help companies get maximum value from their Intacct investment. Intacct has attracted the cream of the crop to its program, boasting 25 of the Top 100 CPA firms and 25 of the Top 100 VARs in the industry. Approximately half of Intacct’s new business comes through the channel partners.
Intacct is honored to be awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN’s Partner Program Guide for the third year in a row. "This is a direct reflection of the hard work put in by the Intacct channel,” said Taylor Macdonald. “Unlike many in our industry who focus just on quantity, we’ve worked hard to build a high-quality partner network to ensure the outstanding service levels provided to our joint customers. This also provides our partners with increased opportunities to grow their business and enables Intacct to better leverage the channel to drive future business innovation.”
To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
As further testament to Taylor Macdonald’s success in leading Intacct’s channel program, in the past year, CRN recognized Taylor as one of their 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs for the second year in a row and he was placed on the Accounting Today’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the Accounting industry for the eleventh time in his career.
The 2015 Partner Program Guide is available online on CRN.com, and will be featured in the April issue of CRN.
