March 30, 2017 – Toronto, ON – Softchoice, a leading North American provider of IT solutions and managed services, announced today that CRN has once again named Softchoice to its 2017 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list recognizes an exclusive group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology vendors.
“It’s an honor for Softchoice to once again be named to the Tech Elite 250,” said Vince De Palma, President and CEO, Softchoice. “Having customer passion is one of our core values. That involves building deep and long-lasting relationships with a growing network of vendor partners, allowing us to offer world-class, differentiated solutions for our customers that align to their specific business needs.”

To compile the annual list, CRN editors and The Channel Company’s research group work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American 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.
“This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boasts some of the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology suppliers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, 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.
