IT Consulting Firm Information Technology Professionals Named One of the U.S.'s Top-Performing SMB Channel Partners by Ingram Micro

BROOKFIELD, Wis., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Technology Professionals today announced it has been named to the Ingram Micro SMB 500. Unveiled at the Ingram Micro 2012 "Turn the Tables" Fall SMB Invitational in Rancho Mirage, Calif., the inaugural list celebrates the top 500 fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel partners focused on small and midsize businesses (SMBs). Ranked at number 24, Information Technology Professionals grew its business with Ingram Micro by 638 percent between June 2009 and June 2012.

The 2012 Ingram Micro SMB 500 list was derived from the more than 20,000 U.S. solution providers and MSPs who work with Ingram Micro's U.S. SMB Business Unit. Those channel partners named to the list demonstrated a consistent, average three-year growth rate of more than 200 percent. The list also takes into account select criteria such as Information Technology Professionals size, overall technology category revenue growth and innovation with SMB business engagements.

"The I.T. consulting market has changed over the past few years. Great technical work is still a must, but now companies expect strong business knowledge, in addition to a good technical skillset. Consumers are also demanding more personal service, as well. So we've responded to the market by delivering innovative cloud and telephony solutions that set us apart and bring more value to our customers," says Paul Hager, CEO Information Technology Professionals. "Our team is comprised of talented and passionate people who understand technology, have strong business acumen and are able to connect with our customers. It may sound overly simple, but smart solutions, great people and a growing relationship with Ingram Micro are three elements that have contributed to our success and enabled us achieve the record growth noted on the Ingram Micro SMB 500."

"Technology plays a critical role in the overall growth, operational scale and continued sustainability of SMBs across the U.S.," says Kirk Robinson, vice president and general manager, Commercial Markets Division, Ingram Micro U.S. "As one of this year's top-ranked SMB channel partners, Information Technology Professionals has demonstrated its business strength and sent a clear message that serving the technology business needs of SMBs is a top priority. We congratulate Information Technology Professionals on this accolade and look forward to enabling their continued success in 2012 and beyond."
