Microsoft has recently announced plans to phase out Windows 7 in January 2020. The end for this operating system will be problematic for many businesses - large and small. Without continued support and updates, you no longer have ongoing security updates and may experience compatibility issues with other programs on your computer. If you are still operating on Windows 7, the time to upgrade to Windows 10 is now.
PC Solutions today announced it was named to the Ingram Micro 2015 SMB 500. The annual list recognizes the top 500 fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel partners serving the small and midsize business (SMB) market. Ranked at number 254, PC Solutions expanded its business with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) by 38% percent in the past three years.
“PC Solutions is honored to receive this recognition. We have been working with Ingram Micro to provide the best IT products and services to our customers for over two decades. Because of Ingram Micro we are able to provide managed IT services to small and midsized companies throughout the United States,” said Allen Hueber, President of PC Solutions.
As part of the SMB 500, PC Solutions earns industry-wide recognition for its growth, continued success and commitment to service excellence.
“The Ingram Micro SMB 500 is comprised of IT service providers and solutions experts who specialize in the business IT needs of SMBs and know how to use technology and IT services to build advantage and solve for the best business outcome,” said Darren Gottesmann, director, SMB sales, Ingram Micro. “We’re honored to recognize PC Solutions’ success and applaud its continued growth with Ingram Micro.”
The Ingram Micro SMB 500 draws performance data on more than 20,000 U.S.-based channel partners supported by Ingram Micro’s dedicated team of SMB IT sales professionals. This year’s list ranks channel partners by the company’s compound annual growth rate between 2012 and 2014. To qualify for consideration, SMB-focused channel partners must have been doing business with Ingram Micro for three full years, as well as meet minimum sales thresholds in the first and last years of the analysis period. The 2112 Group once again collaborated with the Ingram Micro Business Intelligence Center to conduct the research and analysis and determine the rankings.
“This year’s winners are growing faster than the industry average and finding greater success within the SMB,” said Lawrence M. Walsh, CEO and chief analyst of The 2112 Group. “The SMB 500 shows how consistent execution and collaboration with strategic alliance partners such as Ingram Micro can and will result in accelerated growth, performance and business agility.”
