Auburn, WA (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
Zones, Inc., today announced it has been named to CRN’s annual list of the Tech Elite 250. These companies represent an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors. Zones first appeared on this list in 2013.
In compiling the list, CRN editors worked with The Channel Company’s research group to define the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications — from vendors including Cisco, Citrix, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, NetApp, Microsoft, VMware and Symantec —have enabled solution providers to deliver the most premium products, service and support to their North American customers.
“Zones holds nearly 60 of the highest certifications in the industry and remains committed to ongoing training to ensure that Zones team members are among the most skilled and knowledgeable in the industry,” said Murray Wright, president and CEO at Zones. “Being named to this prestigious list by CRN again this year confirms that Zones is equipped to help our customers solve their most challenging IT problems.”
“The solution providers highlighted on our annual Tech Elite 250 have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained industry credibility by investing in the IT certifications necessary to stay competitive and deliver the highest level of service to their customers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “These featured solution providers have enhanced and strengthened their partnerships by earning some of the most difficult certifications from some of the biggest names in IT. We congratulate these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”
