Parsippany, NJ – September 24, 2012 - Strategic Products and Services (SPS), a global systems integrator, has been named by UBM Channel to the 2012 CRN Fast Growth 100 list for the second consecutive year. The annual list features the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry based on two years' growth of net sales from calendar year 2009 to calendar year 2011. SPS placed 79th on the list.
Fast Growth 100 companies are considered some of the best and brightest of the channel— companies that have managed to fight strong economic headwinds to achieve impressive revenue growth over the past two years.
SPS specializes in unified communications, contact center, network convergence, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), Voice over IP (VoIP), managed services, telecom expense management, video, consultative planning and monitoring services. In addition to Avaya, Microsoft, HP, Cisco, Extreme Networks and Juniper Networks, SPS holds numerous certifications with partners that enable the company to provide powerful and integrated business solutions.
“Posting revenue growth of any sort is something to be proud of in the shadows of a recession," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director for UBM Channel. “But the companies on CRN's Fast Growth 100 list have experienced phenomenal increases in revenue over the past two years. Getting there is a combination of hard work and an ability to truly understand customers' needs. These companies represent the strength of the channel today and hope for a stronger tomorrow. We congratulate SPS for continuing to grow and succeed in spite of recent global economic turmoil.”
In addition to their Fast Growth 100 listing, SPS has ranked in the top 300 of the CRN Solution Provider 500, formerly VAR500, for six consecutive years. Earlier this month, SPS won a National Partner Award from Avaya and recognition from value-added distributor, Catalyst Telecom.
