CRN Lists Zyxel Networks in Its 2022 Partner Program Guide
ANAHEIM, Calif.--(April 27, 2022)--Zyxel Networks, a leader in delivering secure, AI- and cloud-powered business and home networking solutions, has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2022 Partner Program Guide. CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide is the ultimate list of the most notable partner programs from industry-leading technology vendors that provide innovative products and services through the IT channel.
CRN develops its Partner Program Guide every year to provide the channel community with a deep dive into the partner programs offered by IT vendors, service providers and distributors. Companies are scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
The three-tier Zyxel Authorized Partner Program (ZAP) is for value-added resellers and managed service providers who create and sell enterprise-class networking and security products to the mid-market in North America. Eligible resellers must have a purchasing relationship with an authorized Zyxel distributor, and must employ a sales and consulting model as their primary go-to-market strategy.
ZAP provides channel partners with an unprecedented opportunity to boost profitability and success through a portfolio of tools and resources that includes deal registration, discounts, training webinars, tech support, lease financing, lead referrals, and access to sales engineers. Zyxel provides assistance to ZAP partners throughout each step of the sales process, assigning a dedicated sales account manager that can assist with pricing, technical support escalations, stock and distribution coordination, and application consultation with a systems engineer or product management.
“The global COVID pandemic hit our channel partners hard as they were exposed to unprecedented disruptions in their businesses driven primarily by supply chain issues and the requirement for most businesses to transition the office workforce into remote workers,” explained David Soares, Zyxel Networks Executive Vice President Channel Sales and Marketing North America. “To help our valued partners maintain their membership and progress in our ZAP program during this extremely difficult period, we extended the period of time required to meet the qualifying sales level from six months to one year. This enabled them to continue to benefit from the revenue-enhancing benefits of the program over an extended period as they worked to restore their businesses.”
“CRN’s Partner Program Guide delves into the strengths of each organization’s partner program in order to honor those that consistently support and promote good change within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “As innovation fuels the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers want partners that can keep up with and assist their growing business.” The 2022 Partner Program Guide is featured in the April 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/PPG.
