In a press release earlier this year AMD, one of the leading providers of microprocessors, announced that it was recognized by Everything Channel as one of North America’s top information technology (IT) vendors for the AMD Fusion Partner Program. To further boost their recognition, they were also acknowledged with a 5-star rating for its partner program.
The 5-star partner program award was presented in the enterprise category in Everything Channel’s 16th annual 2010 Partner Program Guide (PPG). The award acknowledges AMD’s “commitment and strength of its programs for reseller partners, which include IT integrators, technology solution providers and consultants.”
AMD Fusion Partner Program was implemented in fall 2009, and it merged the company’s existing partner programs into one streamlined and efficient program. The program effectively provides partners with resources and “customized incentive benefits designed to meet their specific business needs and help them accelerate development and sales.”
According to Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director of Everything Channel, “The quality of a technology vendor’s partner program determines how profitable its partners will be. For their commitment to their business partners and their efforts to build quality programs, we congratulate those recognized as this year’s Five-Star Partner Program winners for helping to drive greater revenue in the channel.”
David Kenyon, vice president of worldwide channel marketing at AMD, and an Everything Channel 2010 channel chief, was thrilled and noted, “Our partners are one of the most important pieces of our business and we aim to continually improve and simplify the way they do business with AMD.”
