PEER 1 Hosting Named to CRN's 2013 5-Star Partner Program Guide

5-Star designation identifies PEER 1 Hosting's partner program as one of the IT channel's most elite

Vancouver (I-Newswire) March 25, 2013 - PEER 1 Hosting, the global IT hosting provider, today announced its listing in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide as well as its 5-Star Partner rating award. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of IT companies that service solution providers or provide products to the IT channel, recognizing vendors that have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT channel.

PEER 1 Hosting's Smart Partner Program was designed completely around the company's partners, offering a complete, holistic program for the IT hosting space. The program focuses on training, certification and unrivaled support to help partners sell and further their own business. With a dedicated partner program manager, each partner has access to the people and solutions that will enable them to succeed. PEER 1 Hosting's channel program puts the partner first, creating an environment that works for the reseller, and ultimately, the end user.

"The companies listed in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."

"It's an honor to be awarded CRN's 5-Star Partner Rating for our Smart Partner Program," said Mike Mayer, Global Channel Director, PEER 1 Hosting. "We value our channel partners and provide the support and resources they need, like qualified leads, marketing resources, a partner portal and online tools, to be successful when reselling PEER 1 Hosting solutions. This 5-Star Partner Rating is great validation of our program thus far, and we look forward to continued collaboration with our partners to drive the most comprehensive program in the industry."

The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications. The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
