Itasca, April 2, 2020 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has received a 5-Star rating from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2020 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of the most rewarding partner programs from technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel.
The Channel Company’s research team analyzed each vendor’s partner program to determine the 2020 5-Star ratings. Each was scored based on several factors, including investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

Over the last year, IFS has more than doubled the number of certified partner resources while increasing YoY partner-generated revenue more than threefold.
