SoftwareONE Named to 2018 CRN Fast Growth 150 List


Product launches, acquisitions and partnerships lead to award-winning

the leading software and cloud portfolio management provider, announced
today that CRN®,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, has named SoftwareONE to its 2018
Fast Growth 150 list
. The list is CRN's annual ranking of North
America-based technology integrators, solution providers and IT
consultants that have experienced significant economic growth over the
past two years. The companies recognized this year represent a
remarkable combined total revenue of more than $50 billion.

"As more organizations move to the cloud they have started to recognize
the critical need to manage costs," said Lawrence Schwartz, CMO of
SoftwareONE. "Our offerings are designed to help organizations reign in
their costs as they transition to and host applications in the cloud. We
are honored to be named to the Fast Growth 150 list."

SoftwareONE's growth can be attributed to many factors, including the
launch and subsequent enhancements made to its PyraCloud platform, new
partnerships, as well as the acquisition of UC Point for the purpose of
enhancing and extending SoftwareONE's unified communications service
offerings. The growth of the public cloud services market – estimated to
reach $186.4B
by the end of 2018 – has also attributed to the growth of SoftwareONE's
services offerings as more companies transition to the cloud.

Security, of course, becomes paramount to a company's strategy in
relation to the cloud transition, and SoftwareONE has developed Security
for Microsoft Azure and Security for Microsoft 365 to ensure our
customers are fully protected as they move key business applications to
the cloud. In addition, the expansion of our xSimple solutions
(including AzureSimple, SAMSimple, BackupSimple, UCSimple and Simple for
AWS) make it easier and more cost-effective for organizations to enter
the cloud space on their time, at their budget.

"CRN's 2018 Fast Growth 150 list features companies that are growing in
an ever-changing, challenging market," said Bob Skelley, CEO of The
Channel Company. "As traditional solution providers are moving towards a
services-focused business model, this extraordinary group have been able
to successfully adapt; outperforming competitors and proving themselves
as channel leaders. We are pleased to recognize these organizations and
look forward to their continued success."
