IFS Earns 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2018 Partner Program Guide
Annual guide recognizes IFS Partner Network as among the channel’s top partner programs
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the IFS Partner Network a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
IFS is actively growing and making investments in its partner program for its products including the IFS Applications™ enterprise suite, IFS Field Service Management™ best-of-breed solution and operational intelligence technologies. The IFS Partner Network is differentiating itself in the marketplace by providing partners with choice. Partners are able to choose what geography, vertical and selling model—either perpetual or subscription license—fits best with their business.
