CRN Names Vology One of 2017’s Tech Elite Solution Providers

TAMPA, Fla., March 29, 2017 – Vology, the Managed IT Service Provider, is honored to announce today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Vology to its Tech Elite 250 list for the third consecutive year. The annual list recognizes an exclusive group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading vendors.

To compile the list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors identified the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the 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.

Only 20 companies with headquarters in Florida were included on the 2017 Tech Elite 250 list. Vology is one of four based in the Tampa area. Vology has invested more than 50,000 hours of technical certification expertise in 130 unique vendor accreditations in subjects such as networking, security, and servers.

“Earning a prestigious spot on CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list is proof that hard work doesn’t go unnoticed,” said Barry Shevlin, CEO of Vology. “Our team has spent a lot of time expanding their knowledge, proving their dedication to staying on top of current and emerging technologies. Their proficient skills and premier certifications have created Vology’s backbone of technical expertise, something our customers have come to rely on 24/7/365.”

“This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boasts some of the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology suppliers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of 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.”
