ViewSonic Named Everything Channel's 2010 Display Technology Leader

ViewSonic Breaks Samsung's Winning Streak, Wins 2010 Annual Report Card for Product Innovation, Support, Partnership and Overall Vendor

WALNUT, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) - ViewSonic® Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, today announced that it has been named to Everything Channel's prestigious 2010 CRN Annual Report Card (ARC). For 25 years, the Annual Report Card has served as the definitive benchmark of vendor/partner relationships and an industry standard for measuring excellence in the channel community. This year, Everything Channel's research team surveyed more than 3,700 solution providers in 18 product/service categories and asked them to evaluate the importance and satisfaction with their vendors' products, support and channel programs. 

ViewSonic was issued the Overall Award for Display Technologies, a category that has previously been awarded to Samsung the last seven years running. Sub-categories also awarded to ViewSonic include Product Innovation, Support and Partnership.

"For 25 years, we have asked solution providers to rate vendors on their channel commitment and excellence in providing superb service to identify the true leaders of the channel. Winning the CRN Annual Report Card is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT channel industry, and we congratulate ViewSonic for making it to the list," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

"We are pleased to be recognized for our unwavering commitment to providing our partners with leading programs by Everything Channel's ARC award, and our new Finch Club program takes our partnership even further," said Jeff Volpe, Vice President and General Manager, ViewSonic Americas. "We have made serious investments in our display technologies this year, which is made evident in our recent announcement to take our full monitor lineup to LED by early 2011. To have the VAR community acknowledge these efforts is both an honor and a motivator to continue driving forward."

ViewSonic has supported the channel for over 20 years across a range of vital vertical markets, and has consistently made efforts to ensure its programs are aligned with channel priorities. ViewSonic's Finch Club program offers resellers streamlined access to resources to grow their businesses. In addition to extensive promotional deals, incentive programs, sales tools and ongoing training programs and webinars to reward its channel partners, ViewSonic is rolling out further enhancements to the program, starting September 1, 2010.

The ARC awards were presented on Aug. 24 at the 2010 XChange Americas conference at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Dallas. The complete listing of the 2010 Annual Report Card will be featured in the October issue of Everything Channel's CRN Magazine and online at
