only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes for the
most SMB- and partner-friendly products, technologies, services,
programs, and professional organizations in the channel today, via the
publication’s website. For each category, readers were asked to select
the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work
styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as
