SGI Receives CRN’s 2012 5-Star Partner Rating Designation

SGI (NASDAQ:SGI), the trusted leader in technical computing, announced today that it has received CRN’s 5-Star Partner rating for the third time in three years, and has been named to CRN’s 2011 Partner Programs Guide. CRN’ s Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partner ratings serve as the definitive list of vendors who have robust partner programs or products that manufacturers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.

“Alliance Technology Group invests heavily in delivering the right solutions and services to our customers,” said Hugh Hayes, executive vice president at Alliance Technology Group, LLC. “The combination of SGI’s differentiated products and 5-Star channel Program makes SGI a valuable partner to Alliance.”

SGI’s Channel Network Program is designed to partner with an elite group of value-added-resellers who bring differentiated solutions to their customers. The value that this program brings to its partners includes having unique solutions for their customers, as only VARs with value-added services and market insight who train with SGI are authorized to sell these solutions. SGI ensures that the underlying technology and architecture is truly differentiated and produces market-leading performance. The program itself protects profits through a strong opportunity registration, lead passing, and other incentives for partners who invest with SGI.

“Providing unparalleled support to our channel partners through our award-winning Channel Network Program is fundamental to our success as a company,” said Alison Ryan, vice president of global channel sales at SGI. “We are pleased that our efforts have been recognized with a Five-Star rating for now the third year in a row. This award recognizes of the strength of our partner program and the value that SGI brings to its partners.”

In building the list, UBM Channel Research developed a methodology in which vendors are assessed on information provided in their completed applications. The objective criteria takes into account each vendor’s investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
