NORWALK, Conn. -- Xerox Corporation received top honors from channel publications and their readership for its strong partner program, leadership and innovative technology.

For the third consecutive year, Xerox was named "overall winner" for workgroup color printers in CRN's 2009 Channel Champions Awards, taking the top spot in all three sub-categories - "expected sales," "competitive pricing," and "product margins, SPIFs and rebates." In addition, the company's multifunction printers received an award in the "support satisfaction" sub-category for multifunction printers.

"The quality of a vendor's partner program determines how profitable its partners will be. So for their commitment to their partners, and their efforts to build quality programs, we congratulate Xerox for helping to drive greater revenue in the channel," said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel.
