Yonkers, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Progressive Computing Inc. announced it was named to the Ingram Micro 2014 SMB 500. The annual list recognizes the top 500 fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel partners serving the small and midsize business (SMB) market. Ranked at number 429, Progressive Computing expanded its business with Ingram Micro Inc., the world’s largest technology distributor, by more than 21 percent in the past three years.
Channel partners named to this year’s SMB 500 list were identified recently at the Ingram Micro’s inaugural 2014 IMOne event held in New Orleans. As part of the more than 20,000 U.S. solution providers and MSPs who work with Ingram Micro’s U.S. SMB Business Unit, these top-performing companies achieved a three-year compound growth rate of more than 42 percent.
Ingram Micro’s annual SMB 500 list is developed in close collaboration with channel research services firm The 2112 Group, Ingram Micro’s Business Intelligence team, and U.S. SMB Business Unit. Criteria for selection to the list includes size, overall technology category revenue growth, and innovation across SMB engagements.
"We would not be so successful in helping our clients remain productive and profitable without the many great technology partners we have throughout the country. We're pleased to work with and be recognized by Ingram Micro, and look forward to reaching new milestones on a regular basis," said Robert Cioffi, CEO of Progressive Computing.
“The Ingram Micro SMB 500 is representative of solution providers who are focused on business excellence and recognize the value in teaming with Ingram Micro to deliver a superior customer experience and grow their business faster,” Jamie Ferullo, director of SMB sales, Ingram Micro U.S. “We congratulate this year’s SMB 500 and applaud their success.”
Performance metrics, trends, best practices, and other key findings from the Ingram Micro 2014 SMB 500 list will be produced by The 2112 Group and noted on the Ingram Micro SMB 500 site: http://www.im-smb.com/smb500. Additional information and research is available on 2112’s Channelnomics, a news and analysis website dedicated to channel business trends.
“The channel partners who earned a spot on the 2014 Ingram Micro SMB 500 are growing at rates that are three to four times the channel industry average and well above the channel average for SMB-focused resellers,” says Lawrence M. Walsh, CEO and chief analyst of The 2112 Group. “The SMB 500 shows how consistent execution and collaboration with a technology distributor with broad resources and support mechanisms, such as Ingram Micro, results in accelerated growth performance and business strength.”
