Bob Scott’s Insights Names First Tech Direct as 2011 VAR Stars: Progressive Media Group’s Bob Scott’s Insights, www.BobScottsInsights.com, has selected Royal Oak-based First Tech Direct as a winner of its 2011 VAR Stars award. One hundred resellers are selected each year for this honor. 2011 VAR Stars have a practice involving the sales of mid-market financial software and while most derive significant revenue from other sources, accounting software is the core to their business. Revenue is not a factor in selection and VARs are not rated. All members on this list have equal standing. Factors taken into consideration included growth, industry leadership and innovation.More at www.firsttechdirect.com.
