Carahsoft is honored to be recognized for our outstanding performance by the industry, trade press and, most importantly, our partners.
RESTON, Va. –- July 1, 2013 –- Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that it has been recognized for the eighth consecutive year by UBM Tech Channel as a part of CRN’s 2013 Solution Provider 500 list, which identifies the top technology integrators in the U.S.A. and Canada based on revenue size. Formerly known as the “VAR 500,” the Solution Provider 500 (SP500) ranks the highest producing solution provider organizations in the IT channel from hardware sales, software sales, and managed IT services.
Carahsoft made its first appearance on the list in 2006 at #399. It ranked #28 on the most recent list based on its 2012 revenue of $1.4 billion.
“We continue to see growth in the public sector’s demand for cloud, virtualization, cybersecurity, mobility, and big data solutions in particular,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president. “To address that demand, we are expanding our business units to ensure we are able to deliver the quality, cost-effective solutions our government customers, technology partners, service providers and resellers have come to expect.”
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 2012.
“We aim to highlight the ‘best of the best’ among the channel community, and the Solution Provider 500 is no exception. Now in its 18th year, this prestigious list serves as a valuable industry resource to help end users quickly identify top performers and make the most well-informed choices for their business,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies listed have a forward-thinking approach to solutions sales. They are also highly dedicated to putting their customers’ needs first to accelerate the adoption of innovative technology and drive immediate results. We congratulate Carahsoft for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
