ChannelPro-SMB Introduces the 2018 SMB All-Stars

November 05, 2018

The only awards program of its kind in the channel, the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars recognizes a select group of hardware, software, or service vendors whose products, programs, and initiatives have made a significant impact on the SMB channel during the editorial calendar year. The ChannelPro SMB All-Stars were selected by the ChannelPro-SMB editorial team as the top innovation partners in the SMB IT channel ecosystem today.

What constitutes a significant impact? Some factors include:

  • Developing a new product or service that has market-changing potential
  • Creating a significant new channel program
  • Redefining the company with clear partner benefits
  • Making bold business moves that positively impact SMB resellers
  • Making a market shift from enterprise to SMB, with products purpose-built for SMBs
  • Leveraging an acquisition to provide enhanced opportunities for partners and additional functionality for their customers

The All-Stars list varies in size annually, and has neither a minimum nor maximum length.
“Given the sheer volume or new products, business ventures, and partner program rollouts ChannelPro covers over the course of a year, it takes something really special for a vendor to separate themselves from the crowd,” says Rich Freeman, executive editor of ChannelPro-SMB. “This year’s winners all met that high standard with initiatives we believe will tangibly benefit our audience of resellers, MSPs, and IT solution providers.”

Editorial coverage includes the ChannelPro SMB All-Stars special feature in the November print and digital editions of ChannelPro-SMB magazine, as well as online coverage at
