CHELMSFORD, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/20/12 -- Aspect Software, a leading global provider of customer contact and enterprise workforce optimization solutions, today announced that the company has been ranked 128 in this year's Software 500. The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers.
"The 2012 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was again healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $643.6 billion worldwide for 2011, representing approximately 17 percent growth from the previous year's list," says John P. Desmond, editor, Software Magazine.
"The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners," says Desmond. "It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted soon at www.softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software."
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2011. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting.
