World’s Largest Technology Distributor Recognizes Entec in its Inaugural Ingram Micro SMB 500 List

RICHMOND, Va, Dec. 31, 2012 — Entec Systems today announced it has been named to the Ingram Micro SMB 500. Unveiled at the Ingram Micro 2012 “Turn the Tables” Fall SMB Invitational in Rancho Mirage, Calif., the inaugural list celebrates the top 500 fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel partners focused on small and midsize businesses (SMBs). Ranked at number 7, Entec Systems, Inc. grew its business with Ingram Micro by more than 985 percent between June 2009 and June 2012.

Developed in collaboration with Ingram Micro’s Business Intelligence Center and U.S. SMB Business Unit, as well as channel research services firm The 2112 Group, the Ingram Micro SMB 500 list was derived from the more than 20,000 U.S. solution providers and MSPs who work with Ingram Micro’s U.S. SMB Business Unit. Those channel partners named to the list demonstrated a consistent, average three-year growth rate of more than 200 percent. The list also takes into account select criteria such as company size, overall technology category revenue growth and innovation with SMB business engagements.
