NEW YORK, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Logicalis to its 2017 Tech Elite 250 list for the seventh consecutive year. This annual list honors an exclusive group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology vendors scaled to their company size.
As enterprise and mid-market organizations continue along the path toward digital enablement, the key to success in the IT department no longer lies simply in the technology it provides, but more importantly in the user experience IT is able to deliver. As CIOs focus less on technology and more on becoming internal service providers, they are relying more heavily on solution providers to guide them in the right direction to achieve their organization's business goals, something which significantly raises the bar for solution providers when it comes to certifications and real-world expertise.
"Being recognized by CRN and included in the Tech Elite 250 for the seventh year in a row provides an important acknowledgement of Logicalis' extensive capabilities," says Mike Martin, Senior Vice President of Solutions and Services, Logicalis US. "By building strong relationships with our partners, investing in the development of our solution architects and consultants, and taking the time and effort to attain the highest levels of technical expertise and certification possible, Logicalis has proven itself to be a worthy digital enablement partner and a trusted advisor to our clients. We are honored that CRN has recognized these efforts and has once again included Logicalis among this elite group of solution providers."
To compile the annual list, The Channel Company's research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Companies who have obtained these elite designations – which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services and customer support – are then selected from a pool of online applicants.
"This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boast some of the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology suppliers," says Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "They have adapted impressively to major changes in the IT channel, especially the shift to a more services-driven market, by expanding their skill sets and sharpening both their technical and customer service expertise. Congratulations to our 2017 list, whose robust investment in their organizations has earned them yet another elite designation—the CRN Tech Elite 250."
