Annual List Ranks North America’s Top 500 Technology Integrators
Wichita, Kan. – High Touch Technologies today announced 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. High Touch placed #436 in the annual ranking, up from #448 in 2011.
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.
“High Touch is proud to have earned a ranking in the CRN VAR500,” said Wayne Chambers, President and CEO of High Touch Technologies. “We consider this recognition an honor and believe it supports our mission of commitment to providing technology, products and services to meet our clients’ needs,” he added. “Additionally, we’re excited to have moved up in the ranking from previous years. That also speaks well of our dedication to continually improve our product and service offerings,” said Chambers.
“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 High Touch Technologies for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
