Pure Storage Receives CRN Enterprise App Award

Annual “Appy” Award Recognizes Top Mobile Business Applications

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., November 9, 2016 – Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the market’s leading independent solid-state array vendor, announced today that it has received a coveted 2016 CRN® Enterprise App Award for its Pure On The Go application in the Network/Device Management category from The Channel Company. The CRN “Appys” recognize outstanding achievement by developers of enterprise mobile apps.

Awards were given in categories including business intelligence/big data, business management, communication, network/device management, productivity and Editors' Choice. Winners are selected by a CRN editorial panel on the basis of a combination of critical factors, including functionality; suitability to task; innovation; and potential value to solution providers, their customers and the market in general.

The Pure On The Go app provides channel partners with the ability to configure the amount of storage needed for a customer’s environment, provide the price for the technology and quote the cost of the product and services for the customer. This capability is available at the partners’ fingertips from anywhere at anytime and is a game changer for partners who want to accelerate deals. Additionally, Pure Storage can also pass sales leads to partners via the app and partners can accept and register the deals. The Pure On The Go provides partners access to sales and marketing materials, such as data sheets and resource templates and provides direct access to the partner portal.

"Tools that make a vendor easy to work with, allow the partner to deliver an exceptional customer experience," said Steve Johnson, President, Corus360. "Pure On The Go is convenient and allows us to quote and close deals quickly, which is good for our business as well as Pure's."

“Pure Storage technology is known for simplicity and ease of management, which is a huge benefit to our customers and partners; we want our sales assets and process to be just as simple with Pure On The Go,” said Michael Sotnick, VP of Global Channel and Alliances, Pure Storage. “The Pure On The Go app provides all the tools partners need to start and close a deal with the convenient configure, price, quote feature in the app.”
