We are thrilled to announce that The Answer Company has once again been honoured as a member of Bob Scott’s VAR Stars for 2022, a distinguished group of 100 organizations recognized for their outstanding accomplishments in the field of midmarket financial software. 

Selection for being a VAR Star is based on factors such as growth, industry leadership, recognition, and innovation, rather than revenue The firms chosen represent a diverse range of sizes and many different solution providers of accounting software.

Each year, 100 VAR Stars are picked from the best organizations that market financial software. It is always an honour to recognize those who contribute to the development of our business, Bob Scott said.

We are proud to be one of the only 6 Canadian companies selected for this prestigious list. Despite global challenges posed by the pandemic, The Answer Company was fortunate to continue growing through 2022.

Being recognized as a Top 100 VAR for three consecutive years is a true honour for The Answer Company.
