Buffalo Americas Gets High Marks on CRN’s 2018 Annual Report Card

Solution Providers Recognize Buffalo Americas as a Best-in-Class Channel Provider of SMB External Storage Hardware


Austin, TX – Buffalo Americas, announced today that it has emerged the winner in the SMB External Storage Hardware category of CRN®‘s 2018 Annual Report Card (ARC) awards program. This includes category sweeping wins with Product Innovation Winner, Support Winner, Partnership Winner, and Managed & Cloud Services. The Annual Report Card summarizes results from a comprehensive survey that details solution provider satisfaction across product innovation, support and partnership for the hardware, services and software vendors they team up with. The vendors with the highest ratings are named to the prestigious Annual Report Card list of winners and celebrated as best-in-class by their partners. The results also provide the IT vendor community with valuable feedback—directly from their solution providers—that can be used to refine product offerings, enhance support offerings and improve communication with partners.


This year’s group of honorees was selected from the results of an in-depth, invitation-only survey by The Channel Company’s research team. More than 3,000 solution providers were asked to evaluate their satisfaction with more than 65 vendor partners in 24 major product categories. The winners will be honored throughout The Channel Company’s XChange 2018 conference (https://www.thechannelco.com/events/xchange-2018/about), taking place August 19-21st in San Antonio, TX.


“An ARC award is one of the industry’s most prestigious honors. It symbolizes a vendor’s dedication to delivering high quality and innovative product and program offerings to their channel partners,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s Annual Report Card provides solution providers with the rare opportunity to offer their invaluable insight on vendors’ products and services, as well as their partner programs. As a result, the technology suppliers are equipped with actionable feedback to bolster their efforts to remain the best-of-the-best. Congratulations to each of this year’s ARC award winners—we look forward to honoring them at our XChange 2018 conference this August.”
