Honored as the Top Vendor in the Power Protection and Management
WEST KINGSTON, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 --  Schneider Electric,
a global specialist in energy management, was named a 2013 Channel
Champion by CRN in the overall category of Power Protection and
Management at an awards ceremony during the XChange Solution Provider
conference on March 12, 2013 in Orlando, FL. Schneider Electric has
won this honor for the 20th consecutive year. CRN's annual Channel
Champions awards are based on the results of a series of surveys
conducted with top solution providers; the awards are presented to
vendors receiving the best ratings in the areas of technological
satisfaction, support satisfaction and financial benefits. 
The CRN Channel Champions survey is the largest and broadest-based
technology integrator market study in the industry, measuring the
overall perceptions of vendor products and services by IT solution
providers. The end result is a list of the most partner-friendly
vendors in the channel, serving as a valuable resource for technology
integrators when evaluating vendors and their programs. 
"Winning CRN's Channel Champions awards for 20 years is an incredible
honor for Schneider Electric and demonstrates the unwavering
commitment we have toward the channel in providing the best
capabilities, products and support available in the market," said Rob
McKernan, president, North America, Schneider Electric IT Business.
"Our many strong, long-standing channel partnerships speak to our
dedication in growing and changing to meet the evolving needs of the
market without sacrificing the excellence that our partners have come
to expect, and we thank all of our channel partners for the privilege
of working with them so collaboratively through the years." 
"To receive a Channel Champion award is a distinct honor," said
Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, CRN.
"The win is a testament to a vendor's dedication to supporting and
maintaining a strong channel program. As such, this award is a direct
result of their ability to develop and grow solid, mutually
beneficial relationships with partners. We congratulate these leading
technology vendors on this recognition."
