CRN Fast Growth 100

Calgary, AB – October 12, 2010 – Long View Systems, a leading provider of IT Consulting, Cloud Services and Outsourcing Solutions, today announced that it has been recognized by Everything Channel on the CRN Fast Growth 100 list. The list recognizes solution providers with growth rates in excess of 26 percent, average two-year revenue growth of 110 percent, and average annual sales of products and services of $120.8 million. The ranking is based on two years’ growth of net sales from calendar year 2007 to calendar year 2009.

In the 10 years it has been in operation, Long View has consistently seen substantial growth in terms of revenue (nearing $200M for FY 2010), staff (now 750+), and branch offices (now seven locations across western North America). Long View has maintained a strong focus on sales effectiveness, building industry partnerships, and strengthening its brand through North America.

“Long View has certainly stood the test of time, thriving during the dot com crash and the recent economic downturn by delivering value to our customer’s and driving innovation,” said Dan Sottile, Chief Revenue Officer for Long View. “We attribute our ongoing success to our unique corporate culture, which is reflected in our commitment to our industry partners and to each of our clients. We’re tremendously excited to be recognized by CRN once again.”

“The Fast Growth 100 are channel innovators and mavericks who are growing in considerable size and influence. As business-oriented IT consultants, these organizations work closely with customers to identify multivendor IT solutions to solve their business problems. We congratulate Long View Systems on their well-earned success despite current economic conditions,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director for Everything Channel.
