Google adds 'premier' tier to reseller program

The goal is to give special recognition and treatment to the most successful channel partners

Google has created a new level in its enterprise reseller program to recognize channel partners with the highest revenue and customer satisfaction.

The Google Reseller Program now has a tier called Premier Resellers, which is a step above the existing Authorized Resellers category.

To qualify for Premier Resellers, channel partners need to meet specific levels of revenue, customer success and technical expertise, Google said in a blog post on Thursday.

The company didn't provide details about the criteria to qualify for the Premier Resellers tier in the blog post.

Google also plans to add more categories to the Reseller Program to better identify specific areas of expertise among participants.

"As our reseller partners continue to help customers succeed, we hope these new standards will help them strengthen their business by providing clear benchmarks for them to strive for and meet," wrote Jim Chow from Google's Global Partner Programs in the blog post.

Enterprise products in the Reseller Program include the Google Apps hosted collaboration and communication suite, the Search Appliance enterprise search device and the Google Earth Enterprise mapping software.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
