Most Computers did not submit their financial data, but many other companies entered the ranking – huge system integrators like Information Services, Index Bulgaria, and Stanga, export oriented companies like Questers Bulgaria, big hardware suppliers like Konica Minolta BS Bulgaria and Virtualna zona. Large development centers like SAP Labs Bulgaria and VMware Bulgaria traditionally participate in the list, so are the export-oriented firms CSC Bulgaria, Experian Bulgaria, Stanga, Bulpros Consulting, ProxiAD, TBI Info etc. The largest growth of the business in 2014 was achieved by the new entrants DigiMark Studio (408,4%) and OrangeDot (+257%), followed by Lema Trading (165%), Accedia (145%), Prime Distribution (141%) and Bulpros Consulting (almost 91% ). 70 of 105 participants in the ICT ranking for 2014 reported higher earnings compared to 2013, eight companies have single-digit decline, while another 13 show a turn-down of up to 20-21%.

The Top 5 leading companies in efficiency are Polycomp, Solytron Bulgaria, Comparex Bulgaria, Mnemonica and CAD R & D Progress Group, showing that high speeds with less staff can be generated not only in the distribution business.

The telecom sector

After a few years of sudden 2-digit falls in telecom services turnover, in 2014 the market begun to get back to equilibrium. The annual revenue goes down some 3%. According to the annual financial statements of the three leading telco operators, BTC (Vivacom) reports the smallest drop of its turnover and profit in 2014.
