Filing not one but two sets of annual accounts since last year's Top VARs, this Birmingham-based tech solutions provider rises six spots in the ranking on the back of five per cent growth in both calendar 2019 and 2020. Net profits hit £787,000 last year. HPE's reigning UK SMB partner of the year, Probrand marks itself out from rivals with a "ground-breaking" marketplace it claims helps its 3,500 SME and public sector customers procure IT more efficiently.
The pandemic "has not been detrimental to the company", Probrand stressed in its annual accounts. Its marketplace enabled customers to "quickly and efficiently" source IT products that were in severe constraint throughout, it added.
