What is the RIS Apollo channel database?
RIS's beautiful database is an independently researched list of over 10,000 ICT Channels Partners operating in Asia-Pacific, and we estimate these partners represent 85-90% of the IT products and services supplied in APAC. The database captures multiple data-points within the individual partners such as key staff, how the revenues are made-up, how established the company is, and ownership notes about each Channel Partner.
Why a vendor would want to use Apollo?
Apollo offers an almost infinite number of search options, and flexible payment packages to make it easy for you to run a channels query, or multiple query's. Options range from one very simple search for a particular named company, to multiple searches for a whole slew of search criteria such as - Partner type, size (turnover or staff numbers), vendors represented, office locations, products sold, services provided, and vertical sectors targeted. Each unique search generates the report, easily downloaded, with a percentage for each partner illustrating the degree of compliance with the search criteria (hits).
