GFI Software, a leading infrastructure provider for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today that GFI MAX has been named as a winner of the ASCII Success Summit 'Best of Show Awards' in the Best Channel Programs category. This award is presented to the company that is deemed to have the best channel program for the IT industry. Solution provider attendees at each of the six ASCII Success Summits vote in these awards.

"This is another excellent result for GFI and for the team behind GFI MAX. Over the past nine months we have seen a fantastic response from the market and this award underscores the feedback and praise for GFI MAX and our efforts to support the Channel. Our channel program is an ongoing initiative to help VARs, MSPs and IT support companies understand how our solutions can benefit them in terms of new business opportunities and recurring revenues," GFI's CEO Walter Scott said.

"The ASCII Group's endorsement of our Channel Support Program further validates our continued commitment to meeting our customer needs and providing them with all the help and training they require to do business with us," Scott added.

"The 'Best Channel Programs' award recognizes the structure of a channel program of a Technology Vendor including but not limited to authorization process, training, lead generation, MDF, program levels, incentives, sales support, marketing support, technical support in which a Technology Vendor provides to the solution provider community and their partners. It's great to see such immediate recognition for GFI MAX and their innovative Channel support program. They have only recently become involved with ASCII and their Building Blocks program, launched at the recent LA Success Summit, has struck a real chord with ASCII members. This is exactly the sort of program that offers practical and common sense support to IT support companies," said Jerry Koutavas, president, The ASCII Group, Inc.
