Logicalis US Named to CRN’s 2014 List of Tech Elite 250

Annual List Recognizes IT Solution Providers with Deep Technical Expertise and Premier Certifications

NEW YORK, April 16, 2014 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), today announced it has been named to CRN’s annual list of the Tech Elite 250. These companies represent an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors.

In compiling the list, CRN editors worked with The Channel Company’s research group to define the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications – from vendors including Cisco, Citrix, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, NetApp, Microsoft, VMware, and Symantec – have enabled solution providers to deliver the most premium products, service and support to their North American customers.

Logicalis’ focus on emerging and innovative technologies and its breadth of integration expertise encourage close cooperation with the company’s key technology partners. This means Logicalis is often first to market with new technologies and services delivered in cooperation with these partners, particularly in the areas of communication and collaboration, data center and cloud. To do this, Logicalis maintains the highest certifications with its key vendor partners, something which requires significant investments of both time and monetary resources to achieve.

“The solution providers highlighted on our annual Tech Elite 250 have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained industry credibility by investing in the IT certifications necessary to stay competitive and deliver the highest level of service to their customers, “ says Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “These featured solution providers have enhanced and strengthened their partnerships by earning some of the most difficult certifications from some of the biggest names in IT. We congratulate these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”

“Being a part of the CRN Tech Elite 250 underscores Logicalis’ dedication to achieving the highest levels of certification and expertise possible with our vendor partners,” says Mike Martin, Senior Vice President, Solutions and Services, Logicalis US. “It tells our customers that we have made the kind of investment in training our people that allows us to use technology to help solve their most pressing business problems, both in North America and, through our Optimal Services portfolio, on an international basis. And it gives them the confidence that, together with our valued vendor partners, we are able to provide the kind of solutions that truly cause business and technology to work together as one within their organizations.”

Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
