RSM Ranks No. 1 on Accounting Today's 2016 VAR 100



RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – was recently ranked No. 1 on Accounting Today’s annual listing of the Top 100 Value-Added Resellers (VARs).

Accounting Today’s “VAR 100: Clients want control” says that client needs continue to drive the top VARs and technology consultants, with business requirements shaping the technology offered and talent hired to serve an increasingly tech-proficient market.

“We are proud to be recognized in the top spot for the second consecutive year,” said Brian Becker, technology and management consulting national leader for RSM. “Technology is instrumental in driving business growth and creating efficient processes for our clients. At RSM, we take the time to understand our middle market clients’ business needs and challenges and provide solutions to help them succeed.”

According to Accounting Today, this year’s crop of value-added resellers are uniquely positioned to provide the right, often customized application for their unique clientele. And, much like accounting firms, VARs are finding success in assuming the role of more holistic business advisors.

“As the industry evolves, so does our business approach,” said Steve Ems, principal and national business applications leader for RSM. “At RSM, when we advise clients, we use an integrated business model approach to help us optimize the services we provide to meet their business needs. Recognition such as this one demonstrate that our clients trust us to provide them the most effective solutions available.”

RSM’s technology and management consulting team has provided consulting and implementation services for more than 30 years in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, retail, manufacturing, life sciences, not-for-profit, health care and public sector. Considered one of the largest resellers and ranked among the nation's top implementers, RSM consultants come from diverse backgrounds as accountants, controllers, IT professionals and other positions within the industry, and possess an understanding of the challenges facing growing businesses.
