Crofton, MD (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
Force 3 has been named to the inaugural CRN Tech Elite 250. The Tech Elite 250 serves as the industry’s definitive list of VARs with both deep technical expertise and premier certifications. Force 3 has been recognized as a best-of-breed integrator who has invested in technical know-how and earned premier certifications in the areas of data center, security and network infrastructure for North American customers. To view the complete list of winners, visit http://www.crn.com.
CRN Editors worked with solution providers and outside experts to define the most important technical certifications in the market today. By mapping certifications against the key technology opportunities as defined by CRN’s State of the Market, and Midmarket study, the Tech Elite 250 recognizes the VARs most committed to helping customers innovate while reducing costs.
Force 3’s elite data center and infrastructure certifications include Cisco Gold, EMC Velocity Solution Provider and VMware Premier. In addition, Force 3’s “four-legged” sales model puts a presales engineer on the front end of every customer engagement. That has powered Force 3 from a product reseller to a customer-focused business-problem-solver.
“Customer success is what we are all about now,” said Sudhir Verma, senior director of consulting services at Force 3. “It’s all about how we can help the customer, and because of this we have a 100 percent deeper relationship with them.”
“The Tech Elite 250 recognizes an elite group of VARs who are successfully navigating the dynamic IT channel market,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director at Everything Channel. “By adapting to new customer purchasing patterns and redefining best practices, these solution providers are delivering the strategies and value customers demand to compete in today’s competitive economic environment.”
Force 3 will join its Tech Elite peers at Everything Channel’s XChange Solution Provider event next month to help define the future of the IT channel.
