The Solution Provider 500 ranking is based on revenue size, and considers each company’s forward-thinking approach to the channel. In particular, the Solution Provider 500 selection panel sought to recognize companies that are building out practices around the data center and virtualization while offering software integration and application development skills. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2011. Companies with no public documentation were required to submit a notarized affidavit attesting to their 2010 and 2011 revenues.
“We are delighted to not only be recognized on CRN’s Top 500 list again this year, but to be within the top 25 is a great accomplishment,” stated Craig Gadberry, Vice President at SoftwareONE. “The growth we continue to experience year-over-year is a direct result of SoftwareONE’s unique business model and is a constant reminder of the increasing need for a fully-focused software licensing specialist like us.”
“The organizations listed in this year’s Solution Provider 500 list are today’s true integration innovators who generate high revenues by putting their customers’ needs first,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director at UBM Channel. “Their primary role is to engineer ways to leverage technology solutions that help customers exceed their sales goals, drive client satisfaction, expand internationally or accelerate new product development. In essence, they are today’s IT integration leaders for middle market and enterprise customers. We congratulate SoftwareONE for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
A sample of the SP500 list will be published in print and online at CRN.com.
