The ChannelPro Network Names Recipients of 2020 ChannelPro SMB All-Star Awards

The annual honors include recognition to the entire channel vendor community for coming to the aid of partners in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.


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

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.

Of note this year, the ChannelPro Network recognizes the entire channel vendor community for coming to the aid of struggling, blind-sided channel partners with extra outreach and new financing options during the early days of the global pandemic.

And for the second year in a row, The ChannelPro Network is including a Not For Profit All-Star award, which goes to RIoT, for Mission-R, the IoT accelerator’s “moonshot initiative” that nurtured startup makers of IoT products with the potential to improve public and economic health at a time when both were in grave peril.

“We cover standout vendors all year long at ChannelPro, but the elite few we recognize with an All-Star award are companies that really did something special,” says Rich Freeman, executive editor of the ChannelPro Network. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to give them some much deserved recognition.”

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
