2023 Partner Program Guide: 5-Star Device And Peripherals Vendor Programs

Rick Whiting

As part of the Partner Program Guide, CRN designates some vendor channel programs as 5-Star Programs. Here are the 5-Star Programs among device and peripherals vendors for 2023.

Making The Channel Connection

Laptop computers, monitors and displays, printers: These are the IT devices that provide the human-machine connection, the way people interface with corporate IT systems and get back the data and documents they need to work.

Not surprisingly, they are big business for solution providers. That makes the partner programs operated by the IT vendors who manufacture these devices and peripherals especially important.

The CRN 2023 Partner Program Guide offers the information solution providers need to evaluate the channel programs operated by the IT vendors they work with or are considering partnering with. The guide is based on detailed applications submitted by vendors – more than 300 this year – outlining all aspects of their partner programs.

As part of the Partner Program Guide, CRN designates some programs as 5-Star Partner Programs because they provide the most comprehensive lineups of incentives, resources, training, services and benefits.

Here we provide snapshots of the 5-Star designees in the device and peripherals space. Details of every vendor’s partner program can be found here.

Slide shows in the 5-Star Partner Program Guide series running this week include companies that provide products and services in cloud platforms and infrastructure, devices and peripherals, data storage and backup, networking and unified communications, security, software, and systems and data center, in addition to 5-Star partner programs operated by distributors and emerging vendors. While many companies provide products and services that span multiple technologies, we’ve assigned each vendor to the slide show for the technology category in which they are most prominent.
