July 23, 1999—VARBusiness magazine has once again ranked Innovative Interfaces as one of its top 500 VAR (Value-Added Reseller)/integrators in North America. Innovative joins companies such as IBM Global, GE Capital IT Solutions, and Compaq in the prestigious reseller industry ranking.
"It's an honor to be included in the VARBusiness 500 once again," said Jerry Kline, president and CEO of Innovative Interfaces. "Innovative is the highest-ranked company that exclusively serves the library community, and it is gratifying to see that our commitment to excellence in providing automation solutions to libraries has been recognized by the VARBusiness 500, which includes so many general solution providers."
"Listening to their customers and anticipating their needs is what drives the growth of the VARBusiness 500," said Andrew Vogel, the magazine's editorial research director. "Regardless of size, technology, business model, or vertical market, all the companies on the VARBusiness 500 share the ability to solve business problems through the innovative use of technology."
"The VARBusiness 500 is more than just a ranking," said Mark Kindley, editor of VARBusiness. "It provides insights into the dynamics driving the organizations that are supplying high-technology solutions to virtually every sector of the economy."
The Java™-based client software in Millennium, Innovative's Web-based library automation system, was recently singled out by Library Journal (April 1, 1999) as, "one of the most impressive technological developments in integrated library systems."
VARBusiness magazine analyzes key product, technology, and business trends to help readers succeed in selling computer solutions.
