Coming up on CRN Essential...

A sneak peek of what's to come for subscribers of our new market intelligence service

Since we launched CRN Essential last month, subscribers have received access to several additional nuggets of market intelligence, with more to follow.

CRN Essential is our new market intelligence service for busy channel executives.

Upon launch, subscribers unlocked access to a raft of exclusive content, including our inaugural Top 250 UK VAR rundown and accompanying analysis, and our Staff and Salaries study (preview can be read here), which breaks down pay and headcount trends among the UK's top resellers. They also received exclusive access to our back catelogue of monthly round-ups (a free taster of which can be viewed here).

CRN Essential will be topped up with new content throughout the year, and since launch three new products have already been added to the service:

Why CRN Essential, and why now?

CRN is traditionally known as a news-driven title, and that focus on breaking news will always remain.

But research we conducted into our readership last year demonstrated that our audience of vendors, distributors and resellers wanted us to produce more easy-to-access round-ups of key channel trends, and more market intelligence.

Market intelligence may not be the first term people associate with CRN, and there are plenty of research houses that do a great job of tracking channel trends.

But we believe we have something genuinely different to offer thanks to our proximity to our audience and our team of experienced journalists.

As a team, we spent several months conducting the initial research that was made available to CRN Essential subscribers from launch day.

Our team has spent hundreds of hours poring through Companies House documents, interviewing experts and reviewing and summarising content to generate the data and content for this service.

If you have any queries on CRN Essential and what to expect from a subscription, please get in touch with the team via [email protected]
