We’d like to welcome you back from your holidays with a special announcement. Earlier in December, we were announced to the Bob Scott’s Insights VAR Star list for the year 2014—for the third consecutive year! We are proud to share this with you, and would like to thank our customers, partners, and employees for this recognition as one of the highest quality value added resellers in the market today.
About the Bob Scott’s Insights (BSI) 2014 VAR Star List
The selection of mid-market accounting software resellers for Bob Scott’s VAR Stars rests on one basic principal: quality, not revenue, as the deciding factor in picking the 100 businesses that are selected for this honor. VARs from very small shops to the largest participants in the business have been selected in past years and in this year’s rendition.
This was somewhat the year of the cloud when it comes to the 2014 VAR Stars. A majority of them carry cloud products, a bare majority. But for those selected for the latest class of 100 resellers that handle mid-market financial software products, it was a year in which good performance was the clear story.
But the cloud is gaining momentum and VARs that are doing well increasing do so by adding their own software products based on mainline ERP packages. And many made the list by doing the things that work well–executing good business practices.
This yearly award judges VARs on the quality of the company, including factors such as growth, innovation, industry leadership, and awards/recognition within the industry.
Industry Breakdown: 2014 VAR Stars
Focusing explicitly on the financial management, ERP, and accounting software market, the VAR Stars are the leaders in the market, selling at least one of the following brands: Abila, AccountMate, Acumatica, Advanced Solutions International, Deltek, Epicor, Infor, Intacct, Intuit, Microsoft Dynamics AX/GP/NAV/SL, NetSuite, Open Systems, SAP, Sage, Serenic, and Syspro.
Part a successful VAR offering is the successful vendor which allows the VAR to innovate and grow. That’s why, thanks to our specialized vertical offerings, we join 36 Dynamics GP VARs, 18 Intacct VARs, and 15 Dynamics SL VARs.
What Makes Brittenford a VAR Star?
Even as we have been successful in quality, as noted by our appearance on both the BSI Top 100 VARs and Accounting Today Top 100 VARs, the VAR Star list focuses on one key principal: Quality. What does it mean to be a quality VAR? BSI defines quality by four factors:
- Awards and Recognition
- Leadership in the industry
- Development and Acceptance of Software by Resellers
We’ve certainly met those criteria. As the 2014 Concur App Center Partner of the Year and an Intacct Premiere Partner, we’ve certainly been recognized within the industry.
In terms of development and acceptance within the industry, our solutions spanning multiple industries (ExpenseConnect for Intacct, ExpenseConnect for GP, PositivePay for Intacct) have served us as well as our vertical-specific offerings (SchoolConnect).
Brittenford Systems is proud to be on the Bob Scott’s Insights VAR Star List, and again thanks its customers, partners and employees for vaulting us to this high acclaim in the value-added reseller market.
