Recent research from the Aberdeen Group titled "Channel Sales: Renaissance in Partner Management" explored the challenges, strategies and tactics from 220 organizations that rely on indirect channel partners, distributors, and retailers to drive top-line revenue. Sixty-three percent of companies indicate that partner/agent management has a moderate to severe impact on organizational effectiveness.
