Maumee, OH, January 16, 2019 – Aktion Associates, Inc., national software reseller and IT infrastructure provider focused on the Construction, Distribution and Manufacturing industries, announced it has been selected as a member of the Bob Scott’s VAR Stars for 2018, a group of 100 organizations honored for their accomplishments in the field of midmarket financial software.


Members of the VAR Stars were selected based on factors such growth, industry leadership and recognition, and innovation. Selection is not based on revenue and those firms chosen represent a wide range of size and many different software publishers of accounting software.

It’s what sets Aktion apart from other VARs,” Irwin added.
