Comcast Corporation, a global media and technology company, was named a 2013 Channel Champion by CRN in the category of Best in Network Connectivity Services at an awards ceremony during the XChange Solution Provider conference on March 12, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. CRN’s annual Channel Champions awards are based on the results of a series of surveys conducted with top solution providers. The awards are presented to vendors receiving the best ratings in the areas of technological satisfaction, support satisfaction and financial benefits.
The CRN Channel Champions survey is the largest and broadest-based technology integrator market study in the industry, measuring the overall perceptions of vendor products and services by IT solution providers. The end result is a list of the most partner-friendly vendors in the channel, serving as a valuable resource for technology integrators when evaluating vendors and their programs.
“This month marks two years since Comcast implemented its channel program, and this award is validation that our partners recognize our hard work and devotion to the channel,” said Craig Schlagbaum, vice president indirect channels at Comcast Business Services. “Our channel partners awarded Comcast this honor because of the company’s strong brand name, its extensive and reliable network infrastructure and the value of the products and services it offers. In an extremely competitive market, the CRN Channel Champions distinction sets us apart from other vendors by recognizing Comcast’s cutting-edge technology, reliable support and superior value, and it demonstrates to the industry that our partners consider us a best-in-class network service provider.”
“To receive a Channel Champion award is a distinct honor,” said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, CRN. “The win is a testament to a vendor’s dedication to supporting and maintaining a strong channel program. As such, this award is a direct result of their ability to develop and grow solid, mutually beneficial relationships with partners. We congratulate these leading technology vendors on this recognition.”
