Today we publish CRN Top VARs 2014, the fourth iteration of our annual rundown of the UK's 100 biggest channel players.
In addition to profiles of all 100 firms featured, this year we have even more one-on-one interviews with leading channel executives, across the breadth of the list and covering a vastly differing array of players.
Our end-user research is also bigger and better than ever, as we ask 300 UK IT decision makers about how they choose which technologies to invest in, and how much importance they place on brands.
Our results offer a snapshot of which manufacturers in each sector have the largest installed base, and also offer an invaluable insight into what matters to end users when it comes in tech investments. The results may not always make for comfortable reading for resellers, but the findings will hopefully be of value to the channel.
Elsewhere we break down the ins and outs of the UK's 100 leading VARs in numbers, after an outstanding year of growth across the board. You can also find out what Louis van Gaal, tagliatelle, and Mauritius have to do with our top ton.
Print copies should have been sent out today to CRN subscribers, but you can download a PDF copy by clicking on the image above left.
Whatever you think of this year's publication, we would love to hear your feedback – good, bad or indifferent. Please get in touch via phone, email, commenting on this article, or tweeting using the hashtag #CRNTopVARs.
We hope you enjoy CRN Top VARs 2014; we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the companies featured – as well as those who are not – for a tremendously successful year.
