“We are honored to be named to all three of CRN’s top solution provider lists and achieving the Triple Crown Award, as it truly highlights our successes in the areas that are most important to us,” said Justin Mescher, chief technology officer at IDS.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 04, 2016
IDS, a leading data center technology integrator and cloud services provider, announced that it has been honored by The Channel Company with the esteemed 2015 CRN® Triple Crown Award. Fewer than 60 North American solution providers had the necessary revenue, growth and technical expertise to be recognized on three of CRN’s pre-eminent solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year.
CRN assembles lists and rankings each year to recognize solution providers who are setting the bar in the IT industry, including the Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest level certifications from leading vendors.
It is a considerable achievement for a solution provider to make any one of these lists. To make it onto all three, however—as this year's Triple Crown Award winners have done—a company must simultaneously have enough revenue to be ranked on the Solution Provider 500 list, record double- or triple-digit growth for recognition on the Fast Growth 150, and invest heavily in top certifications to attain Tech Elite 250 status.
“We are honored to be named to all three of CRN’s top solution provider lists and achieving the Triple Crown Award, as it truly highlights our successes in the areas that are most important to us,” said Justin Mescher, chief technology officer at IDS. “Through our expert engineering, strong client relationships and a focus on next-generation technology solutions, we take great pride in this distinction and look forward to our continued strategic growth.”
"I am continually amazed by the commitment to excellence demonstrated by the solution providers that drive the IT channel," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The companies that have earned this year's CRN Triple Crown award are truly among the industry's elite, showing the depth and breadth of sales, technical and marketing expertise to earn recognition on our premier lists. We congratulate each of these leading solution providers and look forward to watching them thrive in the future."
