Avocent Certified As Five-Star Vendor From CMP's VARBusiness Magazine

Hailed by Technology Publication for Partner Programs

Avocent Corporation was recognized by CMP Media’s VARBusiness magazine as one of North America’s top information-technology vendors in terms of the partnership programs it offers to solution providers that sell its products and services to end users. Avocent was certified as a Five-Star Partner – for the fifth year in a row – acknowledging its commitment and strength of its programs for IT integrators, resellers and consultants.

Of the 250+ vendor-program entries reviewed for the past year, only 70 companies received the coveted five-star rating in the magazine’s 12th annual Partner Programs Guide survey. The guide appears in the March 20, 2006, issue of VARBusiness.

“We applaud vendors like Avocent for demonstrating best practices and for the leadership roles they have achieved within the IT distribution channel,” says VARBusiness Editor Lawrence M. Walsh.

“This recognition is a reflection on the excellent Avocent Take Command Program partners,” said Dudley DeVore, senior vice president of global branded markets. “Their success is our success. The IT resellers who have chosen to work with us do so because we offer the best-in-class IT infrastructure solutions customers demand. We welcome resellers looking for new opportunity to take a closer look at the excellent programs, promotions and support Avocent can provide.”
