Sovereign Systems Named One of 2017 Tech Elite Solution Providers by CRN®

Tech Elite 250 list recognizes IT solution providers with deep technical expertise and premier certifications

Atlanta, GA, March 27, 2016 – Sovereign Systems announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its 2017 Tech Elite 250 list. 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.

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. Solution providers that have obtained these elite designations—which enable them to deliver premium products, services and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

Sovereign Systems has invested over $2 million and 2,500+ hours in training and certifications across multiple vendors to ensure the team excels on architecture design, implementation and support to deliver superior customer satisfaction.

“This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boasts some of the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology suppliers,” said 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.”

“Winning the Tech Elite Solution Provider award for the fourth consecutive years is a true testament to our team’s hard work on learning and leveraging the technologies that we sell and implement,” said George Barkley, Managing Partner, Sovereign Systems. “Our team puts in countless hours on becoming experts in technology solutions so that we can continue to provide top quality strategy, implementation and support to our customers.”
