Groupware Technology Named to UBM Channel’s Solution Provider 500 List
June 13, 2013
Campbell, CA (June 13, 2012) – Groupware Technology, Inc., a rapidly growing information technology solution provider, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN’s 2013 Solution Provider 500 list, which ranks the top technology integrators in North America. Formerly known as the “VAR 500”, the Solution Provider 500 ranks the highest producing solution provider organizations in the IT channel from hardware sales, software sales, and managed IT services.
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 2012. Companies with no public documentation were required to submit a notarized affidavit attesting to their 2011 and 2010 revenues.
It’s eighth consecutive year earning a spot on the list, Groupware Technology ranked number 145 the 18th annual Solution Provider 500, up over 150 places from its ranking just four years ago. Mike Thompson, Groupware President and CEO, said, “Our continued focus on data center efficiencies, including virtualization and cloud technologies, and professional services are driving our future growth. We hope to continue to climb the ranks of the Solution Provider 500, a group we are proud to be a part of.”
“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 Groupware Technology for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
