Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions and services for enterprise and government customers, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. Motorola’s PartnerEmpower™ program rewards channel partners for their investment in developing the highly specialized skill sets needed to sell, design, implement and deploy innovative mobility and communications solutions. Through this global program, Motorola recognizes channel partners for their expertise in specific technologies, markets or application development, helps them establish critical market differentiation, and provides an array of resources designed to help them build greater sales momentum. To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. “Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.” “Motorola Solutions is honored to receive the 5-star rating once again, and we are committed to the PartnerEmpower program and our global community of partners, distributors and resellers who are among the most competent and knowledgeable partners in the industry,” said Chris Lonnett, vice president of global channels and sales operations for Motorola Solutions. “PartnerEmpower is focused on helping our partners grow their business, increase their profitability and earn a return on their investment in the relationship.”
