SMP Achieves ‘Rochester Top 100’ Recognition for Ninth Time

IT Solutions Provider’s Growth Enables the Company to Give Back 

(Rochester, NY – October 27, 2016)  Strategic IT solution provider SMP (Systems Management Planning, Inc.) has once again joined the elite entrepreneurs of Rochester by placing 12th on the 2016 Rochester Chamber Top 100 list.

The Rochester Chamber Top 100, marking its 30th year, is a program of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and KPMG. Since 1988, each annual Top 100 has ranked the area’s private companies based on dollar and percentage revenue increases over the past three fiscal years, with a minimum of $1 million in annual sales required.

SMP has achieved significant financial growth since inception in 1997, and has grown from a company of one to nearly 100 employees today.  With the majority of employees in Rochester, SMP also has personnel in Buffalo and Albany, as well as Burlington, Vermont. SMP provides IT solutions for customers in New York and New England.

“Being recognized for the ninth time to the Rochester Top 100 is a great honor,” said Eric Rorapaugh SMP’s President. “We are very proud of our success, as it enables SMP to provide quality jobs for the local workforce, as well as to give back to the communities we serve.”

Not only has SMP been recognized by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, they pride themselves in giving back to the community. SMP volunteers at local charities such as Foodlink and the Ronald McDonald House, as well as sponsors local wellness and endurance events like the Rochester Triathlon, Ride for Roswell and the Towpath Breast Cancer Ride.

Providing a great work environment is also critical to the organization and it seems to be paying off, as SMP has earned the Rochester D&C Top Workplace Award for the past 3 years.  Serving customers and delivering strategic and quality IT solutions remains SMP’s focus, and as a result SMP was named to CRN’s Solution Provider 500 List in June of 2016 as well as CRN’s 2016 Tech Elite 250 list in April of 2016.
