EASLEY, SC – (MARKET WIRE) – October 4, 2011– Easley, SC: October 3, 2011 -- Computer Software Innovations, Inc. (“CSI”) (OTCBB: CSWI.OB) today announced its inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 29th year. Included for the third consecutive year, CSI was ranked 421.
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.
“We are pleased to be listed in Software Magazine’s Software 500 for the third year in a row,” said Burt Lancaster, Senior Vice President of Financial Software Solutions. “We’ve made a concerted effort to take what is unique and special about each of our recent acquisitions and create a company-wide synergy that makes our industry-leading customer experience even better. These efforts have not only expanded our business, but are also a direct reason we have been ranked three years straight in the Software 500.”
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2010. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. “The 2011 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $541.5 billion worldwide for 2010, representing approximately 10 percent growth from the previous year’s list,” said John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com.
