CDN Top 100

CALGARY, Alberta (April 20, 2015) — Innovation and commitment are key ingredients on this year’s CDN Top 100 Solution Providers list . . . and they’re also hallmarks of Long View’s continuing success.

Long View, one of North America’s most powerful providers of Hybrid IT solutions and services, has risen to No. 5 overall on the CDN Top 100 Solution Providers of 2014 index. This marks the first time Long View (longviewsystems.com) has cracked the top five on this annual ranking of Canada’s information technology industry players, after holding steady at No 7 for the previous three years.

The CDN Top 100 Solution Providers list is compiled by Computer Dealer News and research partner IDC Canada, and based on the yearly revenue of Canada’s top IT channel partners.

“To be ranked Top Five on an industry benchmark like the CDN Top 100 Solution Providers is a very rewarding achievement,” says Gord Mawhinney, Long View’s Chief Executive Officer. “It clearly indicates that we’re successfully leveraging our industry experience, our successful track record, our invaluable relationships with technology partners, and our dedicated employees as we evolve into a dominant player in the Canadian — and the Western North American — IT market.”

As part of the CDN Top 100 Solution Providers list, Long View reported a revenue range of $325-million to $350-million in 2014. To be eligible for the CDN Top 100 Solution Providers ranking, companies must source products from a leading distributor in Canada, and possess a minimum of one certification or authorization from an IT vendor. Overall ranking is based on total 2014 Canadian revenue generated in Canada.

This year’s CDN Top 100 Solution Providers list was announced during the annual Top 100 Awards Gala on April 15 in Toronto.

“The CDN Top 100 Solution Providers is a tough list to get on and to stay on . . . it demonstrates the great resolve of these Canadian entrepreneurs and the true innovation being developed by this community,” says Paolo Del Nibletto, Associate Publisher and Editor of Computer Dealer News (CDN), Canada’s No. 1 IT channel publication and website.

According to data generated by Computer Dealer News and IDC Canada, total Canadian revenues posted by Top 100 solution providers grew by five per cent in 2014, from $6.4-billion to $6.7-billion — a notable jump from the two-per-cent increase turned in last year.
