ViewSonic Secures CRN Channel Program Trifecta

Receives Coveted 5-Star Partner Program Designation to Cap Year Featuring ARC and Channel Chief Awards

WALNUT, CA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - Following last month's Channel Chief award and recent win of CRN's Display Technology Annual Report Card vendor survey, ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, today announced that it has once again been named to CRN's 2011 Partner Programs Guide and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. CRN's Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partner ratings serve as the definitive list of vendors who have robust partner programs or products that service solution providers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes the vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.

For nearly 25 years, ViewSonic has supported the channel across a range of vertical markets, consistently ensuring its programs are aligned with channel priorities. ViewSonic's Finch Club program offers resellers streamlined access to resources to grow their businesses. The program features exclusive tailored pricing and promotions, targeted product training webinars, VIP customer support, and more extensive sales rewards programs and contests, along with the Recycle+ Asset Recovery Program. Additionally, Finch Club provides dedicated Digital Signage and A/V Integrator Programs, in addition to its ViewSchool(SM) and GovEd Programs.

ViewSonic's diversified product portfolio offers resellers additional ways to grow sales. From the new ViewPad® tablet line and digital signage solutions, to LED monitors and TVs, ViewSonic provides connected technologies to enhance any computing environment. And resellers can also help customers minimize their carbon footprint as a result of ViewSonic's green commitment.

"The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, VP and editorial director for Everything Channel's CRN. "Of those, only a few get our five-star award, based on their commitment to the channel, breadth of program offerings and services offered to their partners. Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue."

"We are honored that Finch Club continues to be identified as one of the channel's most robust vendor partner programs," said Jeff Volpe, president, ViewSonic Americas. "For us, it's all about rewarding our valued channel partners for their continued loyalty. We are dedicated to making it easier than ever for our resellers to work with ViewSonic and it's the greatest compliment when our efforts are recognized with such a prestigious award."

The 2011 Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partners listing will be featured on CRN.com and in the March 28th issue of CRN.
