CSI Among Fastest Growing Solution Providers in U.S.

EASLEY, SC--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Impressive sales growth at Computer Software Innovations, Inc. ("CSI") (OTCBB: CSWI) has earned the company inclusion in CRN 2008 Fast Growth 100. CSI was recognized as the 38th fastest growing solution provider in the United States by generating a 122% increase over the past two years in reaching over $44 million in sales in its technology business unit.

"It's definitely an honor to be included in this prestigious industry ranking," said Nancy Hedrick CEO of CSI. "Our success is a testament to the CSI team. They have revised processes to both encourage and manage our expansion and acquisitions, refined our product and service mix, evaluated new vendors, found the best new hires, and set the expectation that together we can accomplish amazing goals."

"For example, our ranking in the CRN 2008 Fast Growth 100 is based solely on our hardware technology sales. CRN excludes software sales in their selection process which in combination with technology pushes total company sales to over $55 million. A key reason we achieved such a high ranking based solely on technology sales is because our team created a comprehensive, multi-product connected classroom solution for the K12 vertical. They recruited the necessary vendors, developed promotion materials, restaged our event booth to showcase the solution, and brought their idea to market with absolutely phenomenal results."

"One final thought that's very important," added Hedrick, "a special 'thank you' to our vendor partners. They too are an integral part of the CSI team."

"The CRN Fast Growth 100 are the cream of the crop when it comes to Solution Providers who know how to wrap technology in world-class services offerings, and this year's group demonstrate that the technology channel is strong and growing," said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director for Everything Channel editorial. "Rank is based on two years' growth of net sales from calendar year 2005 to calendar year 2007. Net sales were verified by public filings when possible. All private companies provided a signed affidavit attesting to the accuracy of the reported 2005 and 2007 net sales figures or accountant-reviewed financials or audited financials. Affidavits were signed by an owner or officer of the company or by a CPA representing the company."
