Groupware Technology Named CRN® Triple Crown Award Winner Second Annual Award Recognizes Standout Solution Providers
November 12, 2015
Campbell, CA (November 12, 2015) – Groupware Technology, a leading Bay Area data center solutions provider, announced that it has been honored by The Channel Company with the esteemed 2015 CRN® Triple Crown Award. Fewer than 60 North American solution providers had the necessary revenue, growth and technical expertise to be recognized on three of CRN’s pre-eminent solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year.
CRN assembles lists and rankings each year to recognize solution providers who are setting the bar in the IT industry, including the Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest level certifications from leading vendors.
It is a considerable achievement for a solution provider to make any one of these lists. To make it onto all three, however—as this year’s Triple Crown Award winners have done—a company must simultaneously have enough revenue to be ranked on the Solution Provider 500 list, record double- or triple-digit growth for recognition on the Fast Growth 150, and invest heavily in top certifications to attain Tech Elite 250 status.
“Groupware is honored to have earned a place among the Triple Crown Award winners this year,” said Mike Thompson, Groupware CEO and President. “Being recognized by CRN for total revenue, growth and technical accreditation and grouped with this short list of elite solution providers is a welcome validation of our strategic investments in our people and the value they’re able to bring to our customers.”
“I am continually amazed by the commitment to excellence demonstrated by the solution providers that drive the IT channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The companies that have earned this year’s CRN Triple Crown award are truly among the industry’s elite, showing the depth and breadth of sales, technical and marketing expertise to earn recognition on our premier lists. We congratulate each of these leading solution providers and look forward to watching them thrive in the future.”
