Bob Scott reporting in his weekly Insights column.
Online financial software vendor Intacct has named its President’s Club for 2015. The list includes Radius, the San Jose, Calif.-based vendor’s Accountants Program Partner of the Year for the second straight year and accounting firm, Armanino, the VAR Partner of the Year for 2014, also its second consecutive appearance in that role. Other organizations honored for performance were AcctTwo, Arxis Technology, Cargas, CliftonLarsonAllen, Frank, Rimerman + Co., JMT Consulting, Kianoff & Associates, LBMC Technology Solutions, Leap the Pond, Massey Consulting and McGladrey. This selection demonstrates the breadth of resellers that have moved to the cloud. Accounting firm McGladrey was named Americas Solution Provider Partner of the Year for NetSuite and was also No. 1 in Bob Scott’s Top 100 VARs for 2015. Arxis is a highly respected historical Sage reseller; JMT specializes in nonprofits and Cargas is an important Dynamics VAR. The move of quality organizations to cloud products has continued this year with DSD Business Solutions, until recently a Sage-only VAR, picking up Acumatica. However, most large Dynamics VARs remain loyal to Microsoft, as opposed to Sage, which has seen most diversify. Seventeen of the Top 50 resellers carry only Dynamics while with Net@Work adding NetSuite earlier this year, only ADSS Global and Accordant in the Top 50 are Sage-only entities in the Top 50 and with the DSD move, the only other Sage-only VAR in the Top 100 is SouthEast Computer Solutions.
