Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Winxnet, an IT outsourcing and consulting firm with offices in Chattanooga, Tuesday announced it was named to the Ingram Micro 2014 SMB 500. The annual list recognizes the top 500 fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel partners serving the small and midsize business market. This is the third year in a row that Winxnet has received this recognition.

Channel partners named to this year’s SMB 500 list were identified at Ingram Micro’s inaugural 2014 IMOne event. As part of the more than 20,000 U.S. solution providers and MSPs who work with Ingram Micro’s U.S. SMB Business Unit, these top-performing companies achieved a three-year compound growth rate of more than 42 percent. 

Ingram Micro’s annual SMB 500 list is developed in collaboration with channel research services firm the 2112 Group, Ingram Micro’s Business Intelligence team and U.S. SMB Business Unit. Criteria for selection to the list includes size, overall technology category revenue growth and innovation across SMB engagements.

“We’re excited to be recognized as one of Ingram Micro’s top performing SMB partners in the United States,” says Chris Claudio, CEO of Winxnet. “Our business continues to grow rapidly throughout the eastern US, and our relationship with Ingram Micro allows us to quickly and cost-effectively meet our clients’ needs.”  

“The Ingram Micro SMB 500 is representative of solution providers who are focused on business excellence and recognize the value in teaming with Ingram Micro to deliver a superior customer experience and grow their business faster,” says Jamie Ferullo, director of SMB sales, Ingram Micro U.S.  “We congratulate this year’s SMB 500 and applaud their success.”

Performance metrics, trends, best practices and other key findings from the Ingram Micro 2014 SMB 500 list will be produced by the 2112 Group and noted on the Ingram Micro SMB 500 site: www.im-smb.com/smb500.

“The channel partners who earned a spot on the 2014 Ingram Micro SMB 500 are growing at rates that are three to four times the channel industry average and well above the channel average for SMB-focused resellers,” says Lawrence M. Walsh, CEO and chief analyst of The 2112 Group. “The SMB 500 shows how consistent execution and collaboration with a technology distributor with broad resources and support mechanisms, such as Ingram Micro, results in accelerated growth performance and business strength.”
