Insight Jumps 56 Spots on 2018 Fortune 500 List

    London, 23 May, 2018 – Insight (NASDAQ:NSIT), a leading provider of Intelligent Technology Solutions™, announced today its inclusion in the 2018 Fortune 500 rankings, jumping 56 spots to No. 417. This is its largest year-over-year leap in the rankings to date, as well as its highest position on the list since making its debut in 2008.

    Insight’s breadth and depth of capabilities has earned industry accolades from technology brands like Microsoft, Cisco and Dell EMC over the past year in categories ranging from operational excellence and transformational partner to outstanding data center management. The organisation’s focus is on helping clients navigate complex business challenges so they can manage today and transform for the future. Insight brings a number of offerings to the marketplace. Whether its deploying dedicated or cloud hosted infrastructure, helping clients increase speed to market and reduce IT costs – or License Consulting Services to help clients optimise their software investment.

    “At Insight, we believe that every company is a technology company. Our growth over the 10 years we have been named to the Fortune 500 list has been the result of our focus on helping clients manage IT today as they transform their business for tomorrow,” said Ken Lamneck, president and CEO of Insight Enterprises. “We have the capabilities to be an effective partner worldwide to organisations of all types and sizes, helping them invest smarter, collaborate better, optimise their businesses and innovate for the future.”

    Insight’s recent establishment of Licensing Consulting Services, Modern Workplace and Hybrid Cloud have helped clients evolve in the face of new, diverse IT challenges in a tech-centric business environment.

    Insight’s drive in the last year to get closer to clients to provide bespoke, end-to-end solutions, has led it to be ranked eighth in CRN's Top VARs 2017. What’s more, Insight's recent sales restructure has seen it invest not only in more field resource but also in a team of technical, pre-sales and service delivery specialists, enabling clients to have more resource at their fingertips than ever before. This is critical in an era where every organisation is evolving to become a digital tech company, meaning they’re looking for solutions over pure IT.

    “Helping businesses run smarter with technology is our purpose. Technology has long enabled forward-thinking companies to compete more effectively, a fact reflected across our peers in the Fortune 500 and certainly in our own advancing position on this year’s list,” said Lamneck.

    Fortune identifies the nation's 500 largest companies based on a review of the prior year's total revenue and factors such as profits after taxes, year-end assets and total stockholders' equity.
