Crestwood Associates has again been named to Bob Scott’s list of VAR Stars for 2020, a group of 100 organizations honored for their accomplishments in the field of midmarket financial software. This is Crestwood’s seventh consecutive year appearing on the list. The VAR Stars are chosen from organizations that sell and implement various types of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and accounting software.
“We’ve come to expect that our team will appear on the list of VAR Stars, but it’s nonetheless thrilling. At Crestwood, we place a huge emphasis on innovation, and continuously improving ourselves in order to best serve our clients. We are the reigning Acumatica Manufacturing Partner of the Year, so that’s been an exciting new area of growth and knowledge for us. 2020 also saw the launch of our new Crestwood Academy training program that helps new users become masters of the product before going live. Like everyone, 2020 was a challenging but exciting year for us, and we’re looking forward to even more growth in 2021.” – Brian McGuckin, Partner
