Park Place Technologies Named to UBM Channels Solution Provider 500 List

June 28, 2012

CLEVELAND, June 28, 2012 — Park Place Technologies, a leading provider of data center hardware maintenance solutions, was recently recognized by UBM Channel with its placement on the CRN 2012 Solution Provider 500 list, formerly known as the VAR500. The recognition is designed to reward companies that have set themselves apart as the most productive IT service providers. Park Place Technologies has been a part of the list five times since 2007, and has jumped 60 spots since 2010 to reach 305 in 2012.

The CRN 2012 Solution Provider 500 list has expanded from solely recognizing VARs to include a variety of service platforms within the IT channel. The award is given to organizations based on their revenue size and ability to provide innovative service options that drive the industry and their customers forward, an area where Park Place Technologies excels.

“The organizations listed in this year’s Solution Provider 500 list are today’s true integration innovators who generate high revenues by putting their customers’ needs first,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director and UMB Channel.

Park Place Technologies stands out from many of the other solutions providers on the list, in large part because of its scale of operations. It is one of the largest server, storage and data center maintenance providers to make it onto the list of leaders in the service provider field. To a great extent, this role as a key organization in the industry is the result of Park Place Technologies making strategic decisions to reach customers with better service options.

In recent years, Park Place Technologies has grown extremely fast. This expansion is due to the rising desire for better hardware maintenance practices among the reseller community, where the company has maintained strong ties because of its advanced and reliable service options.

At the same time, resellers have been hit with a market in which data center operators are keeping their equipment for an extended period of time in response to economic challenges. While equipment has aged, budgets to manage those systems have not grown. Park Place Technologies has excelled by using innovative solutions to maintain data center hardware while helping organizations limit their costs. Because of this, many data center operators and resellers are embracing the combination of expertise and innovation that Park Place Technologies can deliver.
