More to come in 2014!”
Members of the VAR Stars are selected based on factors such growth, industry leadership and recognition, and innovation. Selection is not based on revenue, and those firms chosen represent a wide range of size and many different software publishers of accounting software. “Each year, 100 VAR Stars are picked from the best organizations that market financial software.
