List recognizes Copper River IT for their deep technical expertise and premier certifications

Chantilly, VA, March 29, 2016 – Copper River IT, a leading provider of dynamic Information Technology solutions and services, announced today that they have been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, on the 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.

Holding the highest-level partnerships with their core vendors, and making training and certification attainment of all their technical staff a high priority, ensures Copper River IT succeeds in their mission to support their customers with only the best solutions and services.

“Today’s IT environment is complex, at best.” explains Vice President of Sales, Jennifer Keating. “Our customers depend on us to provide them with the expert technical knowledge they need to solve any challenge they may face, and it is for this reason that we invest so heavily to ensure our team of experts are consistently trained and certified, at the highest levels possible, across all of our partner technologies.”

“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.”
