Sterling Heights, MI, April 23, 2018 - Centaris, announce today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Centaris to its 2018 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 suppliers, 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. 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.
"We are honored to be acknowledged as a top IT solution provider in North America for the second year in a row," said Curtis Hicks II, President & CEO of Centaris. "We are extremely grateful to have a team of skilled professionals that enables us to continually meet each of our client's technology needs."
In today's fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN's MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
"Being name to CRN's Tech Elite 250 list is no small feat," said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. "These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations and partner program designations from the industry's most prestigious technology providers. Their pursuit of deep expertise and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices demonstrates an impressive commitment to elevating their businesses, and to providing the best possible customer experience."
Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online.
