Herndon, VA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Apptix® (OSE: APP), the premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, today announced it has been named to the 2014 Solution Provider 500 (SP500) list by The Channel Company’s CRN. 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. The list spans eight categories from hardware and software sales, to managed IT services.
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 are honored that CRN continues to recognize our efforts to provide best-in-class, cloud-based business services to customers and blue chip channel partners around the world,” said David Ehrhardt, President & CEO of Apptix. “It validates our strategy of continual re-investment and expansion of our IT architecture and service portfolio and our commitment to operational excellence.”
In 2013, Apptix completed a record 33% year-over-year increase in user bookings to exit the year with over half a million users under contract. Apptix’s channel program was the primary driver of the Company’s bookings growth, accounting for over 60% of orders booked in 2013 – doubling channels’ contribution each previous year from 30% in 2012 and 15% in 2011. The Apptix Cloud Alliance Network channel program addresses partner’s unique needs and experience in the Cloud – from guiding new entrants to Cloud success to helping established Cloud providers reduce costs, expand their portfolio, and increase customer satisfaction.
"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."
