Although BlackBerry is no stranger to winning awards and certifications for their services, it never hurts to add even more. This time around, as noted by Richard McLeod, Global Vice-President of Enterprise Software Channels at BlackBerry, via the Inside BlackBerry blog, BlackBerry has now earned a 5-Star rating in CRN's 2017 Partner Program Guide for their BlackBerry Solutions Provider Program.

I'm thrilled to announce that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the BlackBerry Enterprise Partner Program for Solutions Providers a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. Take a look at our showcase page.

CRN's annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. 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.

To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

This is fantastic recognition from the industry that our young program is on the right track. We've laid a solid foundation for our partners, so they can build their businesses around our BlackBerry Secure Platform.

BlackBerry revamped its Solutions Provider Program to include its new offerings after the acquisitions of Good Technology, AtHoc, WatchDox and Encription, and achieved the award after just 11 months of putting the programs into effect.
