Annual List Ranks North America’s Top 500 Technology Integrators
NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com/) today announced it has been recognized 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. Logicalis US placed 29th in the annual ranking.
“The key to Logicalis’ success is the fact that we’re able to recognize and adapt to changing industry trends in a way that exceeds our customers’ expectations. Clients are taking an evolutionary approach to computing today as new technologies and IT delivery models emerge, are assessed and then adopted or rejected based on each company’s unique demands,” says Vince DeLuca, CEO of Logicalis US. “As a result, Logicalis is providing an ‘X as a Service’ model for our customers. We’ve built a solution development process that delivers core, integrated practices around data centers and cloud, storage, and communication and collaboration, providing value across the entire spectrum of customer compute models – from on-premises data centers to cloud and hosted models. Each of these integrated practices is supported by our consulting, design, and ultimately, our managed services to provide end-to-end ‘X as a Service’ capabilities to customers in any vertical market. This allows our clients to assess and preserve their current, on-premises technology investments as we help them leverage emerging cloud and hosted technologies. This strategy has proven highly effective for our customers and has earned us the industry recognition that we’re being honored with today.”
“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,” says 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 Logicalis for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
The 2013 Solution Provider 500 list category awards will be presented at the BoB (Best of Breed) thought leadership conference in October. A sampling of the 2013 SP500 list is featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and is featured online at http://www.crn.com/. The complete list of 500 companies will be available in the CRN Tech News app, available for iPad and Windows 8.
