Intacct Partner Program Once Again Earns Coveted 5-Star Rating from CRN
SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 17, 2014 – Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting software, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN’s 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating is reserved for an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. This is the second year in row Intacct has achieved this distinction.
To determine the 2014 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. Only the cream of the crop is awarded a 5-Star rating.
Intacct has built a comprehensive network of partners, with proven capabilities, delivering high quality services, support, and software to help companies get the most value from their Intacct investment. Partners play an important role in the growth and success of Intacct, delivering more than 40% of Intacct’s new business over the past year. In 2013, Intacct added over 100 new partners, including nearly a dozen Top 100 VARs and Top 100 CPA firms. Intacct’s channel program now includes 28 of the Top 100 CPA firms and 23 of the Top 100 VARs in the industry – making it the strongest channel program of any cloud financial vendor.
“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, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”
“Earning a 5-star rating from CRN is a testament to everything the partner team at Intacct has done to build a world-class program,” said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of channels at Intacct and a 2014 Channel Chief Award recipient from CRN. “It is the quality of our partners, not the quantity, which really sets Intacct’s program apart in the financial management and accounting space. We’re focused on ensuring that we have the best firms in our program and that we offer the right mix of tools and support to help them achieve their goals.”
The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
