It’s a very exciting time at RingCentral, especially for the Channel. And especially today, because CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has given RingCentral a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide for the second consecutive year. High fives all around!

The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. RingCentral’s passion for enabling partners with the tools needed for success means that ours is one of the most rewarding partner programs in the industry. A core tenet of RingCentral’s partner program is making it simple for partners to transact and interact with us, creating win-win situations for everyone involved—collaboratively, financially, harmoniously.

A few award-worthy program highlights:

  1. Brand-new portal: Easily enter leads, convert opportunities, co-brand marketing materials, check out current promos, take no-cost certifications and training—all in a beautiful, user-friendly interface.
  2. Channel Harmony: One to Infinity Program: Read what that is here. In short, we’ll help you close deals with big resources with a big reward, reducing channel conflict.
  3. RingCentral Partner Academy: We want to connect with our partners during in-person training, half-day events provide success stories, product roadmap insights, and quality time with channel managers.

It’s a pretty BIG deal to earn a 5-star rank from CRN, so we’re celebrating, Vegas-style! Really. We’ll be there this week at Channel Partners Conference & Expo, so stop by our booth #249 to see why RingCentral’s partner program is the best choice. Zane Long, VP of Global Channel Sales, expands on our show activities in this blog post.

And, as a blog is an appropriate channel through which to express the Channel’s excitement about earning this awesome award, we also, in all sincerity, want to properly share this news with the rest of the world; so, we issued a press release. Read it here for more serious information, such as how The Channel Company’s research team determined the 2017 5-Star ratings in the first place.

The 2017 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at
