Value-Added Reseller (VAR)

A VAR is a person or company that adds services, features, or other value to products manufactured by other businesses for which they sell products. A VAR might add customized features to software manufactured by another company, provide engineering or support on behalf of the company that manufactures a product, or offer "add-ons" to the original product.
