Annual List Ranks North America's Top 500 Technology Integrators

TORONTO, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Softchoice, a North American solutions and services company, was once again recognized as an industry leader by UBM Channel as a part of CRN's 2013 Solution Provider 500 List. Formerly known as the "VAR 500", the list ranks the highest producing solution provider organizations in IT from across North America. Softchoice is ranked 35th on this year's list.

"Achieving a high position on this coveted list is a testament to the passion of our people who continue to help our clients stay one step ahead of the latest trends and discover new and better ways to unleash the potential of their business through technology," said David MacDonald, Softchoice's President and CEO.

The Solution Provider 500 ranking is based on revenue size, and considers each company's forward-thinking approach to the IT channel. Over the past year, Softchoice strengthened its services capabilities with the introduction of two significant offerings. Through Softchoice Cloud, IT organizations now have access to a single platform that allows them to securely purchase, deploy, use, and manage dozens of leading Software-as-a-Service applications, including Box, Office 365 and Adobe Creative Cloud. With Keystone Managed Services, Softchoice is also providing the capabilities and access to expertise to help organizations monitor, maintain and improve critical IT infrastructure.

"We aim to highlight the 'best of the best' among the channel community, and the Solution Provider 500 is no exception. 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.
