Tech Elite 250 List Honors the Highest-Achieving IT Solution Providers in Vendor Certifications
MSP 500 List Recognizes the Top U.S. Managed Services Providers

DES MOINES, IA, March 27, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Associated Computer Systems LTD (ACS) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ACS to its 2020 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list acknowledges the top tier 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. These organizations have differentiated themselves as premier solution providers, earning multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.

Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-centric technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have earned these elite designations — enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support — are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

Over the past 40 years, ACS has consistently pursued technical certifications that provide our clients with the most relevant and in-demand technical expertise. It is this knowledge that has made ACS a leader in technology and has helped ACS achieve Tech Elite 250 and MSP 500 status multiple years in a row.

“Operating as a technology compass, it is our duty as engineers and client representatives to become not only educated but become experts on the technologies that are proven to help organizations thrive.” Says Sean Johnson, Vice President of Operations for ACS.

“As our clients adjust to the daily change in economic climate due to COVID-19, we are here to support them and help lead them through this challenging time.” Says Tony Foth, President & CEO for ACS. “We are fortunate to have an amazing and dedicated staff that our clients can leverage and walk alongside as we weather this storm together and emerge stronger than ever.”

ACS’ technical expertise, coupled with strategic business insights, help organizations find the real value and ROI in technology solutions that allow companies to reduce overhead costs, increase revenue, and mitigate risk. ACS continues to look ahead and provide sustainable solutions that address current and future considerations.

“Solution providers that continue to pursue vendor certifications and extend their skillsets across various technologies and IT practices are proving their commitment to delivering the greatest business value to their customers through an incomparable level of service,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our CRN Tech Elite 250 list recognizes leading solution providers with expansive technical knowledge and esteemed certifications for exactly that reason.”
