Mar 11, 2010 Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has been named the 2010 Channel Champion in the Workgroup Color Printers and Multifunction Printers categories as part of the annual study by CRN, the leading industry publication for businesses that sell technology, services and solutions.
In addition, Xerox was honored with the Excellence in Technology Service Award, which was voted on by the company's peers and reseller partner community at an award ceremony on March 10 at Everything Channel's XChange Solution Provider conference in Los Angeles.
This marks the fourth consecutive year that solution provider and value-added resellers surveyed ranked Xerox workgroup color printers higher than any other vendor. Rankings were based on product quality and reliability, financial benefits, and channel program support and satisfaction.
"Solution providers rely on the CRN Channel Champions study to evaluate the leading technology vendors and their channel programs," said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel. "Xerox consistently delivers high-quality products and solutions that satisfy the needs of resellers."
Xerox's Vice President of Channel Operations for North America, Gary Gillam, was also recognized by CRN as a 2010 Channel Chief for his partner program leadership and support. He was featured on the Systems/Peripherals Channel Chiefs list.
Xerox helps resellers worldwide grow their businesses through a broad range of products and programs, such as PagePack® 3.0, a suite of three managed print services programs that help partners manage their customers' entire printing infrastructure – delivering cost savings and productivity improvements.
"Today's solution providers have access to more vendors and categories of products than ever before," said Jerry Farmer, president, Xerox North American Resellers. "These awards come directly from the community we support; their recognition strengthens our drive to provide the best products and services to our customers and partners."
Xerox also strengthened its color product line in 2009 with the introduction of several color printers and multifunction printers (MFPs), including the Phaser® 7500 printer, Phaser 6128MFP, Phaser 6280 printer and WorkCentre® 6400MFP.
