Tech Elite 250 List Recognizes Highest Achieving IT Solution Providers in Vendor Certifications
Toronto, ON – March 25, 2019 – Scalar, a CDW Company (“Scalar”) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Scalar to its 2019 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list honours a select group 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 companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.
To compile this 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 earned these elite designations— which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services, and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.
Focused on security, infrastructure, and cloud, Scalar has a strong technical bench and holds over 2700 certifications from leading manufacturers, and has won numerous awards from its vendor community.
“Having a diverse set of skills and staying up to date with changing technologies are vital for creating and delivering the best solutions for our clients,” said Paul Kerr, President and CEO of Scalar. “We have a great certification and training program across the organization that enables everyone to expand their knowledge across different vendors, specialties, and industry trends.”
“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list recognizes solution providers with extensive technical knowledge and premier certifications,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Pursuit of vendor certifications and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices, proves a solution provider is committed to delivering maximum business value from those technologies and giving their customers the highest level of service.”
