FARGO, ND - October 28, 2005 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of business software, has been named to the Software 2005, Software Magazine's list of the world's foremost software and services providers. This is the second year in a row Atlas Business Solutions has been named to the prestigious list. In 2004, Atlas Business Solutions was ranked 488th with sales of $1.8 million. This year, Atlas Business Solutions moves up three places to 485th with sales of $2.1 million, a 15% year-over-year increase.
The Software 500 is a ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing. The list includes both private and public companies. The Software 500 is searchable by primary business sector on www.Softwaremag.com, free to all site registrants.
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and service revenue for 2004. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by public documents as well as a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.Softwaremag.com.
"The overall health of the software and services industries has improved, with revenue for the 2005 software 500 at $383.3 billion worldwide for 2004, an increase of 16.5% over the previous year. The industry continues to be dynamic, with nearly 100 new companies on the 2005 Software 500 list," says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. "Employee head count was up 13.7% and was strongest in the segments of collaboration/project management, system integration services and IT consulting, and the supply chain/manufacturing software segment."
