LONG BEACH, Calif., March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, a leading provider of exceptionally performing business solutions, announced today that it has been named one of CRN's 2014 Channel Champions. For nearly 25 years, CRN's annual Channel Champions awards rank vendors across the areas of technical satisfaction, support satisfaction and financial benefits, based on the results of a series of surveys conducted with top solution providers. The winners were honored during a special awards ceremony at the XChange Solution Provider conference in Los Angeles on March 4.
The CRN Channel Champions survey is the largest and broadest-based technology integrator market study in the industry, measuring IT solution providers' overall perceptions of vendor products and services across 31 technology categories. In addition to defining which vendors are leading the way in partner satisfaction, the scores—including year-to-year comparisons—also provide a snapshot of the competitive dynamics in each category.
Available through the Epson ImageWaySM Partner Program, the award-winning Epson® WorkForce® Pro C Series was developed specifically to provide VARs and commercial channel partners and their customers with cost-effective printing solutions that deliver superior quality output and meet customer technology needs. The workgroup color printers deliver up to 50 percent lower printing costs and up to 70 percent less power consumption when compared to color laser printers and offer a three-year limited warranty. The high performance, cost efficiency and quality imaging performance delivered by the WorkForce Pro C Series printers, as well as remote printing capabilities with Epson Connect™ mobile printing solutions, warranted IT solution providers to vote Epson as one of CRN's Channel Champions in the Workgroup Color Printer category and Financial Satisfaction sub-category.

"Epson continues to provide superior printing solutions to meet the needs of networked workgroups within small-to-medium-sized businesses, and we are honored to be recognized as one of CRN's Channel Champions in multiple categories," said Monika Dees, product manager, Business Imaging, for Epson America. "Epson is committed to deliver industry-leading business solutions and support to partners and resellers so they can be confident they are offering their customers high quality and robust solutions."
"For more than 30 years, CRN has been an advocate for the IT channel community, producing invaluable content and resources to help solution providers and vendors navigate the IT channel market effectively," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's Channel Champions project serves as an industry benchmark, highlighting the vendors that understand and best meet the needs of today's solution providers, despite a changing and dynamic IT landscape. This list defines the 'best of the best' among the vendor community today, and we congratulate the winners on this well-deserved honor."
