Bob Scott Names RSM No. 1 on 2020 Top 100 VAR List

CHICAGO – (June 11, 2020) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – has been named to the Bob Scott’s Top 100 VARs (Value-Added Resellers) for 2020. The Top 100 resellers are chosen from organizations specializing in the sale and implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and accounting software. This marks the 14th year that RSM has been included on the list, and the seventh consecutive year holding the No. 1 position.

“We want to congratulate this year's class of Bob Scott's Top 100 VARs,” said Bob Scott, executive editor of ERP Global Insights (formerly known as Bob Scott’s Insights). “This selection represents recognition of leaders in this important field.”

According to Bob Scott’s special report, A Great Year and Then? A Virus Clouds the Future, RSM shows the advantages CPA firms can have, especially those with a broad geographic reach. The firm represents NetSuite in about 20 countries, which makes it by far the largest reseller of that cloud product.

“RSM can also bring other resources to bear,” said Steve Ems, national business application leader with RSM US LLP. “We provide finance and accounting outsourcing services, with some clients outsourcing all of their accounting tasks to RSM.” Ems also points to RSM’s proprietary Cloud ERP Selection Guide, and the firm’s ability to provide deep functional and technical resources to deploy Microsoft Dynamics 365, NetSuite and Sage Intacct in a variety of industries.

“We are honored to be recognized in the No. 1 spot on this list for the seventh year in a row,” said Ems. “This past year has been very successful for RSM’s business applications group leading clients to innovative cloud ERP deployments.”

The VAR Top 100 selection is based on annual revenue generated by each reseller. A special report that includes names of the organizations selected for this year’s Top 100 list, ranked by revenue, is downloadable online.

Bob Scott has been informing and entertaining the mid-market financial software community via his email newsletters for 21 years. He has published this information via the Bob Scott’s Insights newsletter—now known as ERP Global Insights—and website since 2009.

Scott has covered this market for nearly 29 years through print and electronic publications, first as technology editor of Accounting Today and then as the Editor of Accounting Technology from 1997 through 2009.
