***** EMBARGO UNTIL JULY 1, 2018 *****


RALEIGH, N.C., July 1, 2018 – ChannelPro: The Insider’s Guide to SMB, is proud to announce its 2018 Readers’ Choice Award winners.

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB were invited to participate in the IT 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 of the 50+ categories, 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 during the first quarter of 2018 and drew participation from more than 800 channel VARs, MSPs, integrators, system builders, and IT consultants. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.

“We are gratified that such a large number of readers participated in our survey, underscoring their commitment to, and understanding of, the SMB market and the vendors, distributors, and professional associations with whom they partner,” says Michael Siggins, publisher of ChannelPro-SMB. “The results are a true snapshot of the top IT product and service providers in today’s SMB channel.”

Gold winners include:

  • Datto, Best Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery Solution
  • Webroot, Best Endpoint Security
  • Lenovo, Best Laptop/Ultrabook
  • SolarWinds MSP, Best Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) Solution
  • ConnectWise, Best PSA Solution
  • Intel, Best Embedded Solution
  • Plus many more

For the first time, ChannelPro-SMB readers voted this year on their favorite Internet of Things offerings from a distributor, and selected Ingram Micro as the inaugural gold medalist.

Complete details are posted at effective July 1.
