Leading global managed cloud services provider earns its spot for its robust tools and resources that drive success for partners and their businesses.
Raleigh, N.C., March 29, 2023 — RapidScale, a Cox Business company, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2023 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide offers essential information to members of the IT channel ecosystem as they explore technology manufacturers’ partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs.
For solution providers such as managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators, and strategic service providers, a critical factor when assessing which IT manufacturers, service providers, and distributors to team with in building world-class technology solutions is the breadth and depth of the partner programs those companies offer. Strong elements such as financial incentives, sales and marketing assistance, training and certification, technical support and more can set a vendor apart and play a key role in boosting partners long-term growth.
In the 2023 Partner Program Guide, vendors were evaluated based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication.
RapidScale continues to invest in robust tools and resources that drive success for partners and their businesses. Over the last year, RapidScale has evolved its technology portfolio with the launch of managed SASE, Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD), and managed Wifi which demonstrated the team’s commitment to innovation and focus on security. The recent acquisition of Logicworks, a leader in managed public cloud infrastructure solutions, has also expanded RapidScale’s capabilities in the managed hyperscaler ecosystem (AWS and Azure). These investments provide partners the opportunity to meet more of their customers’ demands and IT needs, strengthening their offering to provide cutting-edge cloud solutions worldwide.
“As businesses continue to evolve, partners need to keep up with the speed and complexity of today’s technology. That’s why we continue to invest in our channel program so our partners are in the best position to deliver the right solutions for their customers,” said Bob Buchanan, senior director of sales for RapidScale. “We continue to invest in hiring top talent with the expertise to support partners while focusing on results-driven initiatives that directly drive opportunities and revenue together. By providing quality education and valuable resources, we continue to help our partners meet more of their customers’ needs with multi-solution deals.”
“In today’s world, the need for innovation is greater than ever,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers seek vendors that can keep pace with their developing business and evolving client needs. CRN’s 2023 Partner Program Guide delivers deep insight into the strengths of each program, spotlighting the vendors dedicated to supporting their partner community and pushing positive change throughout the IT channel.”
The 2023 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2023 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
