ACS Awarded for Technical Expertise on CRN® 2018 Tech Elite 250 List March 26 2018 Des Moines, Iowa March 26, 2018 – Associated Computer Systems (ACS) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ACS 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. ACS’ recognition as a Tech Elite 250 provider comes shortly after being awarded the 2018 MSP 500 - Elite 150 designation in February. 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. Continuous education and becoming technical experts within each product category ACS offers is a top priority for the company. ACS’ engineers hold certifications from IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, VMware, Veeam, Tableau, and Varonis. Each certification allows ACS to act as a technology compass for our clients, guiding them through technology, simply and efficiently. The added benefit to ACS’ clients are projects that are completed on-time, on-budget, and without incident. Listen to what our clients have to say. “Being named 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.” “ACS is honored to join this elite class of technology providers,” said Sean Johnson, Vice President of Operations for ACS. “Receiving this award reinforces ACS’ philosophy, that we voraciously pursue the certifications required to offer best-of-breed solutions at the highest level possible.
