Computer Generated Solutions Named to UBM Channel’s Solution Provider 500 List
Annual List Ranks North America’s Top 500 Technology Integrators
New York, NY – June 12th, 2012 — Computer Generated Solutions (CGS), a leading global provider of technology solutions, announced today it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN’s 2012 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.
“We are extremely pleased to be included in CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list,” said Phil Friedman, President and CEO of CGS. “Our inclusion is a result of the outstanding talent we have at CGS and the collective minds that are behind all of our innovative solutions. It’s truly an honor to have our work recognized by UBM Channel and, as always, we remain committed to our customers because without them this would not have been possible.”
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.
“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 Computer Generated Solutions for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
The 2012 Solution Provider 500 list was announced at the SP500 Executive Conference and Awards, an elite two-day conference designed for high level executives to meet with companies to discuss business models, technology offerings, and partnerships. Held June 5-6 at the Westin Charlotte Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina, the conference focused on channel marketing strategies and direction, offering actionable content to the top Solution Provider organizations in North America. Attendees learned the secrets for uncovering new market opportunities from industry experts, peers and fellow Solution Provider 500 companies.
A sample of the SP500 list will be published in print and online at CRN.com on June 25, 2012.
