Groupware Technology Named CRN® Triple Crown Award Winner for the Second Straight Year

Campbell, CA (October 10, 2016) – Groupware Technology, a premier Bay Area IT solution provider today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Groupware Technology with its esteemed 2016 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—is a big achievement. 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 Technology is honored to be among the elite Triple Crown Award winners for the second year in a row,” says Mike Thompson, CEO of Groupware Technology. “Being recognized by CRN validates the depth and breadth of our sales, technical and marketing teams. As well as our commitment to our customers, partners and our core values.”
