Zones, LLC, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Zones to its 2020 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list acknowledges the top tier of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size. These organizations have differentiated themselves as premier solution providers, earning multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.
Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-centric technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have earned these elite designations – enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support – are then selected from a pool of online applicants.
“Solution providers that continue to pursue vendor certifications and extend their skill sets across various technologies and IT practices are proving their commitment to delivering the greatest business value to their customers through an incomparable level of service,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our CRN Tech Elite 250 list recognizes leading solution providers with expansive technical knowledge and esteemed certifications for exactly that reason.”
“At Zones, we pride ourselves on our end-to-end Five-Star IT Service delivery,” said Firoz Lalji, Chairman and CEO of Zones. “Our clients experience Five-Star Service from the start of the engagement, with our certified Solution Architects that design the solution, to our OEM-certified engineering teams that integrate the solution, to finally, our Day2 ITIL-certified Managed Service teams and NOC, which continue to provide our clients with Five-Star Customer Service and Support. This recognition highlights our commitment to lifelong learning, which enables us to support our customers as well as bring them into the digital transformation era.”
