Take this global reseller survey and be in to win

04 Apr 16

With ever-evolving cloud based products, an ongoing shift towards Distribution-as-a-service, as well as major distributor buyouts and vendor splits - be it in Australia or Augsburg, New Zealand or New York - the channel continues to adapt to new circumstances.

In these times of challenge and opportunity, CONTEXT’s ChannelWatch survey is setting out to pool the collective wisdom of those resellers at the forefront of these changes.

ChannelWatch is conducted across the globe, and is the largest continuous IT Channel survey of its kind, embracing all major European markets, and as of 2016, including Australia, New Zealand, India and Brazil.

Over 6,000 resellers from all over Europe contributed to the survey in 2015, providing detailed insight into reseller behaviour, opinions and attitudes. It was found for example that the best growth opportunities for the Channel for the year to come were in IT services, closely followed by security and networking.

This year’s survey targets such key issues as Cloud services in Distribution, and gives resellers the means to provide feedback on their distributor’s performance via a neutral third party.

Are you a reseller? This is your opportunity to have your voice heard by distributors. All participants will receive a detailed summary of results free of charge, and also the chance to win $500 in Amazon vouchers. Your confidentiality is guaranteed, with all responses aggregated and no individual reseller response being made public. 

 Supported by the largest channel sales database in the world - with €4B in European revenues tracked per month, and over 150 panelists - CONTEXT has been providing its customers with the highest quality sales and pricing data for over 30 years, helping them make business critical decisions.
