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

Atlanta, GA March 28, 2016 – Sovereign Systems announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Sovereign Systems to its 2016 Tech Elite 250 list for the third consecutive year. 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.

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

“The solution providers selected for our annual Tech Elite 250 list have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained strong industry credibility by earning some of the most difficult IT certifications available from top technology vendors,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Attainment of these exclusive certifications strengthens the channel as a whole by invigorating partnerships and enabling the delivery of exceptional customer service. We congratulate each of these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”

“We are honored to be named a Tech Elite Solution Provider for the third year in a row,” said George Barkley, Managing Partner, Sovereign Systems. “We have invested heavily in acquiring training and certifications across multiple vendors to ensure our team excels on architecture design, implementation and support to deliver superior customer satisfaction. This award is a true testament to our team’s hard work on learning and implementing complex solutions in an ever-evolving IT landscape.”
