Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Altico Advisors (http://www.AlticoAdvisors.com) has been named to Accounting Today’s Top 100 VARs for 2014. The Top 100 accounting and ERP software Value Added Resellers (VARs) are ranked nationwide by revenue. Altico Advisors moved up in the ranking for each year since 2010. In addition to providing Microsoft Dynamics GP for ERP and accounting solutions, Altico also provides clients with CRM software for Customer Relationship Management and NetSuite for ERP, CRM and industry cloud solutions.
The 2014 VAR 100 are featured in a special supplement in the July issue of Accounting Today. Not only are the VAR 100 listed, but the author, Danielle Lee, probes the challenges faced by accounting software resellers. The number one challenge was identified as “talent.” According to the VARs that Lee interviewed, resellers struggle to find qualified sales and consulting staff. Sadly, this shortage of talent can have a negative impact on the all-important customer experience.
Another topic that Lee probed was “What’s in a Name?” She asked several respondents whether the VAR classification adequately describes their business and the answer was a resounding “no!” “I totally agree with my colleagues whose comments appeared in the VAR 100 special issue,” said Altico Advisors Marketing Director Marcia Nita Doron. “We are indeed so much more than a reseller of software. Sure, we also provide ongoing support and training. But the key to success is establishing long-term relationships with our clients as their trusted partner for all of their business needs.”
Mike Kean, President of Altico Advisors, added “Our clients are looking for growth opportunities, new ways to remain competitive, new distribution channels, diversification, mergers, and acquisitions. They’re adopting lean manufacturing principles and innovative alternatives to traditional business models. We’re right there with them on their journey to greater success.”
As a Microsoft and NetSuite partner, Altico Advisors has the advantage of representing two long-established and well-known brands of accounting, ERP, CRM and industry solutions that can be deployed on premise or in the cloud.
