Bob Scott’s VAR Stars 2012 Announced
Technology Management Concepts, has been selected as a member of the Bob Scott’s VAR Stars for 2012, a group of 100 organizations honored for their accomplishments in the field of midmarket financial software. This is TMC’s 4th year in a row being nominated to both Bob Scott’s Insights VAR Stars and Top 100 VAR’s. TMC is thrilled to once again be apart of such a prestigious club of VARs (Value Added Resellers).
Selecting the 2012 VAR Stars
The selection of mid-market accounting software resellers for Bob Scott’s VAR Stars rests on one basic principal: quality, not revenue, as the deciding factor in picking the 100 businesses that are selected for this honor. VARs from very small shops to the largest participants in the business have been selected in past years and in this year’s rendition. A variety of criteria go into the definition of quality including awards resellers have received from vendors, such as the Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club and Inner Circle, and the President’s Circle, Million Dollar Club and Chairman’s Club of Sage North America. Growth, leadership in the industry and development and acceptance of important software products by the resellers are all factors in the selection. There is also an effort to
represent as many software publishers as possible. There is no ranking within these 100 firms. Firms were asked to provide the number of employees and revenue. In cases in which businesses did not provide revenue, it was estimated based on the number of employees, also taking into account the general price range of the ERP applications that these firms handle. In virtually every case, resellers derive revenue from sources other than the sale of mid-market financial applications. These include infrastructure and networking services and a variety of other software products. However, all VARs considered feature accounting applications as the core around which their businesses are built.
Members of the VAR Stars were 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. It is always an honor to recognize those who contribute to the development of our business,” Bob Scott said.
