Only 100 value added resellers of mid-market accounting software are chosen for Bob Scott’s VAR Stars and the selection rests on one basic principal: quality, not revenue, as the deciding factor. There is no ranking to the list.
A variety of criteria is considered in the definition of quality including awards value added resellers have received from vendors, such as Microsoft and Intacct. Additionally, proven growth, leadership in the industry, and development and acceptance of important software products by the resellers are also factors in the VAR Stars selection process.
