Nutley, NJ – June 30, 2008 – Alloy Software, Inc., a leading provider of service and asset management software solutions, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor for its Alloy Navigator product. CRN’s Emerging Tech list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants.
Alloy Navigator is the company’s flagship solution that provides a centralized service desk platform to proactively administer all aspects of IT service management. The product offers a powerful suite of tools to standardize, simplify, and streamline IT operations, and improve service delivery, including self-service. Leveraging industry best practices, Alloy Navigator enables organizations to automate incident, problem, change, configuration, and service management.
According to the CRN Emerging Tech Survey, the top reasons solution providers add emerging technologies include, the technology is superior to other products in the market segment; the technology compliments a solution providers’ existing practice areas; emerging vendors provide better services opportunities; emerging vendors pay better attention to partners; emerging vendors offer higher margins, customers want alternative product choices, and emerging vendors have better joint marketing programs. In addition, 61 percent of solution providers surveyed plan to increase the number of emerging technology vendors they partner within the next 12 months.
“New and innovative vendor partners can help spur profitable new ideas that solution providers can use to build revenue and customer loyalty, and the CRN Emerging Tech list is where solution providers go to find these vendors,” said Robert C. Demarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel.
Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that its direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company’s revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
