WYOMISSING, PA - June 13, 2012 - DSS, a provider of innovative IT solutions that drive business value, 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. DSS placed 388 in the annual ranking, jumping up 50 spots from its 2011 ranking.
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.
“We are extremely pleased to be recognized on the Solution Provider 500 list for the 5th consecutive year with a significant rank improvement,” said Jim Sweeney, DSS President & CEO. “DSS has been providing IT business solutions to companies for over 16 years, and we continue to invest in our staff and resources to develop innovative IT solutions that will foster continued growth in the coming years.”
“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 DSS for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
A sample of the SP500 list will be published in print and online at CRN.com on June 25, 2012.
