Annual List Ranks the Channel's Top Technology Integrators
TORONTO, June 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Softchoice, a leading North American technology solutions and services provider, is pleased to announce it has once again been named to The Channel Company's CRN Solution Provider 500 list (formerly the VAR 500) – moving up to 33rd overall.
The list ranks the top revenue-generating technology integrators in the U.S. and Canada whose forward-thinking approach to the channel has helped them evolve and thrive in today's cloud and services-driven IT era. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2013. Companies with no public documentation were required to submit a notarized affidavit attesting to their 2013 revenue.
"We continue to increase our relevance to clients by staying ahead of their business technology needs," said David MacDonald, Softchoice President and CEO. "As client needs have grown more complex, we've expanded our managed services portfolio to include offerings around disruptive technologies like SaaS, Flexpod, Cisco UC and Office 365 that no one else offers."
"The annual Solution Provider 500 represents those companies that truly understand the needs of customers today as the IT landscape evolves," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "With so many options, this list has become an invaluable resource for vendors working hard to navigate the solution provider community and identify the best partner for their business. We congratulate the featured solution providers and look forward to covering their continued success."
A sampling of the 2014 SP500 list is featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and is featured online at www.crn.com and in the CRN Tech News app, available for iPad and Windows 8.
