Warwick, R.I. – June 6, 2012 – Atrion Networking Corporation, a leading IT Services Provider, today announced it has been recognized for 5th consecutive year 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. Atrion placed 315 in the annual ranking in 2012. This marks a 57-spot jump from last year and a 156 ranking increase since 2008, when Atrion was first featured on the list.
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.
"CRN’s Solution Providers 500 list is the bellwether of our industry and Atrion is very proud to once again be ranked among the most successful in North America," said Tim Hebert, CEO of Atrion Networking Corporation. "Over the course of just five years, the percentage of difference between Atrion’s first placement and our current ranking is 50 percent representing unprecedented momentum," he said. "The strategic investments we’ve made in our people, services, and operations have led our clients to their success as well as to our own."
"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 Atrion 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.
