Costa Mesa, Calif., June 6, 2012 - Insight Investments, LLC, the industry experts in technology finance, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN's 2012 Solution Provider 500 list, which ranks the top technology integrators in North America. Formerly known as the "VAR 500," the Solution Provider 500 ranks the highest-producing solution provider organizations in the IT channel from hardware sales, software sales, and managed IT services. Insight Investments, LLC placed 212 in the annual ranking.
The Solution Provider 500 ranking is based on revenue size, and considers each company's forward-thinking approach to the channel. In particular, the Solution Provider 500 selection panel sought to recognize companies that are building out practices around the data center and virtualization while offering software integration and application development skills. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2011. Companies with no public documentation were required to submit a notarized affidavit attesting to their 2010 and 2011 revenues.
"We are very pleased to have been named to this important list again. Our team is fully committed to ensuring our customers' success and this kind of recognition is a testament to the unparalleled level of service that Insight consistently delivers," said Richard Heard, president of Insight Investments, LLC. "I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such an outstanding group of talented and dedicated individuals whose expertise spans enterprise infrastructure, cloud computing, technology finance and the repurpose of IT systems."

"Their primary role is to engineer ways to leverage technology solutions that help customers exceed their sales goals, drive client satisfaction, expand internationally or accelerate new product development.
