Logicalis US Named to 2015 CRN Tech Elite 250 for Fifth Consecutive Year

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

NEW YORK, April 9, 2015 – Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced this morning it has been named to The Channel Company’s CRN Tech Elite 250. This marks the fifth time in five years Logicalis has earned this distinction. This annual list recognizes 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, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors collaborated to assess 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, among others – have enabled solution providers to deliver an outstanding level of premium products, services and support to their North American customers.

Technology is the foundation upon which today’s businesses thrive and differentiate themselves. To create game-changing solutions that solve its customers’ most pressing business problems, Logicalis first masters the technology it uses to build those solutions.  Through continual investments in training and technical certification, Logicalis has attained the highest levels of partner accreditations available.  As a result of its deep understanding of its vendor partners’ products and capabilities, Logicalis is often called upon by vendors to test and prove emerging technologies – the kinds of technologies it uses in converged infrastructure, data analytics, advanced storage and cloud solutions – and by doing so, Logicalis has earned a reputation among its clients as their “trusted advisor,” a distinction that sets the company apart from competitors and has led to its unique leadership position in today’s IT solutions and managed services marketplace.

“Being a part of the Tech Elite 250 is a coveted industrywide acknowledgement of the investment that Logicalis has made into earning the highest levels of certification possible from our vendor partners,” says Mike Martin, Senior Vice President, Solutions and Services, Logicalis US. “Today, the way business users think about and want to procure technology is very different than it was even a year ago; line of business users expect value-on-demand and want to consume IT solutions in the workplace in much the same manner they do in their personal lives.  As a result, the demands on IT have never been higher to provide not just technology that works, but technological solutions to enterprise users’ business problems.  Technical proficiency in the product lines of the vendor partners we work with has become a baseline requirement for creating the kinds of astute solutions Logicalis offers its customers. We have invested heavily in the training and certification needed to ensure we can help our clients achieve their IT goals.”

“The solution providers selected for our annual Tech Elite 250 have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained industry credibility by investing in the IT certifications necessary to deliver exceptional service to their customers and stay competitive,” said 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 most prominent names in IT. We congratulate these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”
