Business Solutions Magazine Announces "Best Channel Products" Special Report

bsm_logo
(Erie, PA) — June 2, 2009 — As a follow-up to Business Solutions’ popular Best Channel Vendor survey published in January 2009 (BSMinfo.com/bestworst), the magazine is again working with Penn State University to collect feedback via a new survey that will help create a valuable resource for value-added resellers (VARs), consultants, integrators, and ISVs (independent software vendors) — the Best Channel Products.

Whereas the Best Channel Vendor survey provided VARs with scores and anecdotes pertaining to a vendor’s overall partner program, margins, and product reliability, this survey will provide scores and anecdotes on specific products. The results will appear in the September 2009 issue of BSM. In the end, the survey results will establish the leading products in multiple technology categories, useful for making educated business decisions at a time when competition has never been tougher and making sound business decisions has never been more important.

To make this survey meaningful, BSM needs help in gathering the data. VARs, consultants, integrators, and ISVs are encouraged to visit BSMinfo.com/BestProducts to take the 10-minute survey. BSM be awarding $1,000 in prizes to random survey-takers, so be sure to fully fill out the survey by the June 19 deadline.
