PDS Named One of 2017 Tech Elite Solution Providers by CRN

Tech Elite 250 list recognizes IT solution providers with deep technical expertise and premier certifications

PDS announced today that CRN® , a brand of The Channel Company, has named PDS to its 2017 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 vendors, 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. Solution providers that have obtained these elite designations—which enable them to deliver premium products, services and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

Keeping up with the latest technology solutions has always been a top priority for PDS, and is a major way we support our customers. To do this requires an on-going commitment to learning and education. PDS has continually been recognized in the industry for their dedication to training and certification, and continues to be a leader in their space.

“This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boasts some of the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology suppliers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “They have adapted impressively to major changes in the IT channel, especially the shift to a more services-driven market, by expanding their skill sets and sharpening both their technical and customer service expertise. Congratulations to our 2017 list, whose robust investment in their organizations has earned them yet another elite designation—the CRN Tech Elite 250.”

“We want to be more than a vendor for our customers, we want to be a partner with the technology expertise to help them plan and build solutions that are right for their organization. Understanding current technologies and how they impact our customers’ businesses is what drives our dedication to training and certifications,” said Kyle Rentmeester, VP Service Operations & Delivery. “We’re thrilled to have this recognition from CRN again as confirmation that our commitment is consistently keeping us best-inclass”
