GFI recognized in remote monitoring and management category for channel friendliness and VAR margins

GFI Software™ today announced that it has been named a 2014 Best Channel Vendor by Business Solutions magazine. Honored in the remote monitoring and management category, GFI was recognized for its channel friendliness and Value Added Reseller (VAR) margins.

From September 2013 to mid-October 2013, Business Solutions’ VAR subscribers were asked to rate their vendor partners on a scale of zero (worst) to five (best) in seven categories: service/support, channel friendliness, channel program, product features, product reliability, product innovation and VAR margins. 2,508 people cast their votes for this year’s survey. While GFI scored high marks across all seven categories, the company was most notably recognized by survey participants for its positive and approachable channel relationships with partners, along with the rewards it offers VARs for their success.

More than 9,000 managed services providers (MSPs) and VARs are using GFI MAX RemoteManagement™ to provide a variety of IT services – including remote monitoring and management, backup, antivirus, mobile device management and patch management– to their customers through a single, integrated platform. GFI MAX ServiceDesk, a help desk and customer service solution, was recently integrated within the RemoteManagement platform to enable MSPs and VARs to better track and manage customer issues from creation to resolution.

“Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our channel partners to do business with us, and we deliver on that promise through cutting-edge technology, a competitive pricing model and unrivaled service and support,” said Dr. Alistair Forbes, general manager of the GFI MAX business unit. “To be recognized by our VAR partners as a remote monitoring and management Best Channel Vendor really validates our efforts to date. Partner feedback has always been instrumental in helping us shape our channel program, and it will continue to be a driving force for us in 2014.”
