Accounting Today's "VAR 100: More tools in the toolbox," says providers are adding new products, services to better serve customers.
"This year's crop of top accounting/Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) VARs are showing more than ever that being at the top means more than just sales numbers, but adapting to change," said Seth Fineburg, technology editor for Accounting Today. "Through the addition of products and services and attention to evolving customer needs, the vast majority of the VAR 100 continue to prove what it takes to stay at the top."
According to Accounting Today, the cloud continues to grow in importance to top VARs and their customers, and there are more firms than ever that not only have cloud products as part of their offerings, but are in the business of hosting products and offering cloud services to their customers and clients as well. In fact, 42 percent of the 2013 VAR 100 (compared to about a third in 2012) are showing cloud accounting and ERP products, with more on the way for next year.
