Agents, dealers and VARs have named their favorite channel programs of 2011, creating the latest list of companies to earn Channel Partners magazine’s annual Top 50 Channel Programs award.

Qualified participants cast their votes for their preferred carriers, service providers, resellers, hardware and software vendors, and master agents, ranking them as standouts for factors including ease of doing business, quick quoting, responsiveness, extra support, higher commissions and better SPIFFs.

Channel Partners is proud to recognize the winners, from a ballot that fielded more than 2,300 votes from July 5-22. The winners were recognized at the Fall 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo, Aug. 24-26, in Chicago.

Chances are you already work with many of these companies. If you don’t, this designation may prompt you to look deeper into their channel programs — your peers enjoy working with these firms and have declared that loyalty with their votes.
