Slalom Consulting Recognized for "Top Mobility Practice" in CRN's VAR500 List

17th Annual List Ranks North America's Top 500 Technology Integrators

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - Slalom Consulting, a premier business and technology consulting firm, today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel for having the "Top Mobility Practice" in the 17th annual VAR500 list, which ranks the top technology integrators in North America. Featuring the highest producing technology integrators and solution provider organizations in the IT channel, the VAR500 rankings consider earnings from hardware sales, software sales and managed IT services.

The VAR500 is a list of the largest value-added resellers, solution providers and integrators in North America by revenue size. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2010.

"We're vigilant about keeping our eyes on the next technologies that solve our clients' challenges. There's a lot of confusion around mobile right now and we pride ourselves on the ability to separate the myth from reality," said David Uhler, managing director of mobility at Slalom Consulting. "Our mobility practice focuses on the business process -- rather than a specific method or platform -- which allows us to deliver the right solution for our clients. We're extremely honored to be recognized by Everything Channel as the leader in the mobile industry."

"The VAR500 represents the top performing solution providers in the IT community," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "Vendors of all sizes rely heavily on the VAR500 list to find those solution providers best suited to sell their products. VAR500 honorees are considered trusted business advisors, integration experts, and invaluable partners. Even more importantly, they solve customers' biggest IT business problems through product integration, training, consulting and services. We congratulate Slalom Consulting for making this year's VAR500 list and for winning the 2011 Top Mobility Practice award."

VAR500 Executive Conference and Awards

The 2011 VAR500 list and individual award winners were announced at the VAR500 Executive Conference and Awards, an elite two-day conference designed for high level executives to meet with VAR500 companies to discuss business models, technology offerings, and partnerships. Held June 13-14 at the Sawgrass Marriot in Jacksonville, Florida, the conference focused on channel marketing strategies and direction, offering actionable content to the top Solution Provider organizations in North America. Attendees learned the secrets for uncovering new market opportunities from industry experts, peers and fellow VAR500 companies.
