Excellent results are rewarded exclusive. In a festive ceremony during the Raritan Partner-Kick-Off Meeting, on February 19th and 20th, 2015 at the Medienhafen in Dusseldorf, the award ceremony was held. Raritan used this event to thank its partners for their excellent cooperation during the last year.

For the first time in the company´s history, Raritan, global provider of data center infrastructure management solutions, awarded a prize for the best German channel partner.

"We have a unique indirect sales concept, which is exclusively focussed on the channel", says Ralf Ploenes, Managing Director of Raritan Germany GmbH. "Therefore, the close and trusting relationship with our local partners in Germany forms the basis of our sales success." In order to emphasize the importance of the channel the "Partner of the Year" Award was presented.
