McGladrey Named No. 2 on Accounting Today's 2012 VAR 100 List


CHICAGO, IL – McGladrey LLP, the nation’s fifth largest provider of assurance, tax and consulting services, was recently ranked second in Accounting Today’s annual listing of the Top 100 Value-Added Resellers (VARs). Previously, the firm was ranked third.

Accounting Today’s “VAR 100: Reaching for More” says that, “With more than a third of this year’s top value-added resellers now carrying cloud accounting and/or ERP [enterprise resource planning] products, and most of the remaining firms adding to their existing product lines, it is clear that the VAR 100 are starting to see better times and/at the least, are interested in changing some of their business.”

“The VAR landscape is clearly changing, and we are pleased to showcase those that remain at the top of their game,” said Seth Fineberg, technology editor for Accounting Today. “This list is truly representative of the top performers in the field, and we are proud to have been recognizing them for over a decade.”

“At McGladrey, we understand all of our clients’ needs, and can provide advisory, delivery and other support services to make them successful,” said Steve Ems, principal and national capability leader for ERP with McGladrey. “Our integrated approach to serving clients is a differentiator within the marketplace, and has resulted in our being more than service providers – we’re trusted advisors to our clients.”

According to Ems, McGladrey is seeing increased interest in cloud computing and other cutting-edge technologies, and the firm is uniquely positioned to help middle-market businesses, in particular, determine the best and most cost-efficient approach to meet their needs.
