ControlUp Earns 5-Star Rating in 2024 CRN® Partner Program Guide

In its inaugural list placement, ControlUp receives a 5-star rating for its elevated Drive DX Partner Program which accelerates profitability for channel partners building thriving Digital Employee Experience businesses

SAN FRANCISCO (March 25, 2024)ControlUp, at the forefront of Digital Employee Experience (DEX) management, today announced it has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, with a 5-Star Award in its 2024 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide provides essential information to solution providers exploring technology vendor partner programs that offer high value and align with their business needs and goals.

The breadth and depth of support and resources technology vendors offer through their partner programs is a critical consideration for solution providers assessing which IT vendors, service providers, and distributors to team with in building world-class technology solutions. Program elements such as financial incentives, sales and marketing assistance, training and certification, technical support and more can set vendors apart and play a key role in boosting their partners’ long-term growth.

The 5-Star rating is awarded to the companies that have built their partner programs to go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, and successful channel partnerships.

For the 2024 Partner Program Guide, CRN evaluated vendors based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication.

Following the launch of ControlUp’s elevated global channel partner program, Drive DX, in January, ControlUp is actively engaging with partners worldwide looking to build vibrant DEX businesses with the leading platform to see, analyze, automate and improve secure DEX to advance business productivity. In addition to establishing a resource-rich and standardized global partner program, ControlUp has added compelling partner incentives including advisory rewards for assured deal protection, a world-class training from the ControlUp Academy, flexible marketing programs and pre- and post-sales support—all designed to help partners accelerate their DEX revenue and profitability.

“It’s an honor to be recognized with a CRN 5-Star Award for our inaugural entry into the Partner Program Guide,” said Julia Scully, Head of Global Channel Sales, ControlUp. “We have been actively focused on elevating our partner support and engagement and are pleased that it has quickly resulted in such a meaningful accolade. We highly value the members of our Drive DX partner program and have been investing millions to make ControlUp a channel-first company that delivers both the alignment and accountability that drives mutual value.”

“Recognition on this list reflects the value of the spotlighted vendor partner programs and their commitment to evolving with solution providers and supporting IT channel success,” said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. Content and Executive Editor, CRN, at The Channel Company. “This recognition empowers solution providers to discover vendors that keep pace with the evolving requirements of their business and their clients. With CRN’s 2024 Partner Program Guide, solution providers can access deep insights into the unique strengths of each partner program and vendors who demonstrate dedication to their partner community.”
