Four value added resellers collected accolades yesterday when mid-market software vendor Epicor Software announced its top VARs worldwide for the year 2000.
In Australia/New Zealand, Professional Advantage won VAR of the Year (highest combined revenue); Datacom was awarded highest revenue for Platinum for Windows sales; Star Accounting achieved largest deal in Clientele or eFrontOffice; and Implementation Soft won Rookie of the Year for best new VAR.
Harry McLaren, a director at Implementation Soft said he was pleasantly surprised by the selection.
McLaren said it had signed up for Epicor's program five months ago. Implementation Soft has historically been involved in implementation work, and this was its first foray into selling product. "We liked the product and the people and figured we could do something together," McLaren said.
Epicor Software reports more than 400 Epicor VARs competed for the awards.
