Groupware Technology Named One of 2016 Tech Elite Solution Providers by CRN®

Campbell, CA (March 29, 2016) – Groupware Technology announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Groupware to its 2016 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.

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.

Groupware was selected as a Tech Elite 250 recipient for the sixth consecutive year.  Groupware architects and engineers are certified in a wide range of technologies, with expertise that spans the data center.  Professional services and integration teams can design and deploy advanced solutions that are customized to meet customers’ business demands and expertly integrated to accelerate deployment and simplify management.

“The solution providers selected for our annual Tech Elite 250 list have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained strong industry credibility by earning some of the most difficult IT certifications available from top technology vendors,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Attainment of these exclusive certifications strengthens the channel as a whole by invigorating partnerships and enabling the delivery of exceptional customer service. We congratulate each of these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”

“Our technical expertise and breadth of integration and deployment services are highly valued by our customers,” Scott Sutter, Executive VP at Groupware, stated. “Our ability to attract and retain top technical talents speaks to our innovative, customer-centric culture. Our lab and integration facilities are state of the art and give our technical team more ways to help customers architect optimal solutions, validate their investments and get more from their data center and IT initiatives.”
