(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Cloud hosting provider Infinitely Virtual today announced it has been named to the Ingram Micro 2015 SMB 500. The annual list recognizes the top 500 fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel partners serving the small and midsize business (SMB) market. Ranked at number 126, Infinitely Virtual expanded its business with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) by 59 percent in the past three years.
“Ingram Micro continues to be a valued channel alliance for us, in large measure because the company is so familiar with the SMB world and has helped us serve those businesses so well,” said Adam Stern, founder and CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “Our clients turn to us for virtualized infrastructure services, and we in turn enlist Ingram Micro to ensure that we can provide those products and services efficiently and cost-effectively.”
As part of the SMB 500, Infinitely Virtual earns industry-wide recognition for its growth, continued success and commitment to service excellence. This marks the third consecutive year that Ingram Micro has recognized Infinitely Virtual as a member of the SMB 500.
“The Ingram Micro SMB 500 is comprised of IT service providers and solutions experts who specialize in the business IT needs of SMBs and know how to use technology and IT services to build advantage and solve for the best business outcome,” said Darren Gottesmann, director, SMB sales, Ingram Micro. “We’re honored to recognize Infinitely Virtual’s success and applaud its continued growth with Ingram Micro.”
The Ingram Micro SMB 500 draws performance data on more than 20,000 U.S.-based channel partners supported by Ingram Micro’s dedicated team of SMB IT sales professionals. This year’s list ranks channel partners by the company’s compound annual growth rate between 2012 and 2014. To qualify for consideration, SMB-focused channel partners must have been doing business with Ingram Micro for three full years, as well as meet minimum sales thresholds in the first and last years of the analysis period. The 2112 Group once again collaborated with the Ingram Micro Business Intelligence Center to conduct the research and analysis and determine the rankings.
“This year’s winners are growing faster than the industry average and finding greater success within the SMB,” said Lawrence M. Walsh, CEO and chief analyst of The 2112 Group. “The SMB 500 shows how consistent execution and collaboration with strategic alliance partners such as Ingram Micro can and will result in accelerated growth, performance and business agility.”
