NEWARK, Calif., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Tegile Systems today announced it has been named to CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel.

The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The list methodology is based on objective criteria that 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. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.
Some Benefits of the Tegile Partner Program Include:
Channel model focuses 100% on the channel with no direct sales force
Level pricing for all partners
