Research for the 2009 Everything Channel Partner Programs Guide and the Everything Channel Five-Star Program was conducted by Everything Channel’s Institute for Partner Education & Development (IPED). IPED analyzed 130 vendor programs rating vendors’ responses to nearly 60 in-depth questions about their partner programs in the six elements of sales support, marketing support, partner profitability, channel operations, communications and partner recruitment. To ensure fair comparisons, companies were placed in one of four categories based on company size. IPED weighted the responses to each question about such program elements as sales support and partner recruitment so that the total weight given to a vendor’s answers in any of the six elements can potentially be scored as high as 100. The weighting scheme varies depending on the company size and product type and is based on IPED proprietary analysis methodology and intellectual property. In each of the four company categories, the companies with the highest overall weighted scores received the Everything Channel Five-Star Program designation.
