Dasher placed #188 in the annual ranking, moving up from #272 in 2011

Campbell CA, June  6th, 2012 — Dasher Technologies,  a leading systems integrator,  today announced it has been recognized 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. Dasher Technologies placed #188  in the annual ranking, moving up from #272 in 2011.

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.

“Our growth and achievements over the past year are a testament to Dasher’s capabilities in delivering best in class solutions to our clients.  A recent poll of our client’s indicates that Dasher is doing a lot of things right, from technical expertise, holistic customer experience and client advocacy.  Our sales and services organizations continue to overachieve and execute every day” states Al Chien, VP Sales & Marketing at Dasher.

“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 Dasher Technologies for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
