The Triple Crown
CRN assembles a number of lists and rankings throughout the year, including the Solution Provider 500 list of the largest solution providers in North America by revenue, the Fast Growth 150 ranking of the fastest-growing solution providers, and the Tech Elite 250 solution providers with the highest level of certifications from major vendors such as Cisco, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft. It's quite an achievement when a solution provider makes any one of CRN's lists. Making two is very impressive.
But to make all three? This year CRN recognizes the 26 solution providers that did just that with our first-ever Triple Crown honors. Just making the SP500 and Fast Growth 150 is a challenge. A company has to be big enough to make the former, while still recording the kind of double- or triple-digit growth usually only seen in startups. To be Tech Elite, it also has to invest heavily in top certifications. Here are the solution providers that had the revenue, growth and technical expertise to be named 2014's Triple Crown winners.
