RALEIGH, N.C., July 1, 2015 – ChannelPro: The Insider’s Guide to SMB, is proud to announce the 2015 ChannelPro Readers’ Choice Award winners.

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB were invited to participate in the channel’s only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes for the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations with the most SMB- and partner-friendly solutions, services, or programs in the channel today, via the publication’s website. For each category, readers were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations.

The multiple-choice survey, which provided space for write-in responses, was fielded in Q1 and Q2 of 2015 and drew participation from more than 500 VARs, MSPs, integrators, system builders, and IT consultants in the channel. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.

“Our readers are a selective group, choosing technologies for their own businesses with all the care they take when recommending solutions to their SMB clients,” said Cecilia Galvin, executive editor of ChannelPro-SMB. “It is always gratifying to see such a high level of participation in the survey on the part of our readers, which helps us compile the only rankings of this kind for SMBs and the channel companies that serve them.”
