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, 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 these lists. Making two lists is very impressive.
But to make all three? CRN recognizes the 57 solution providers that did just that with our second-annual Triple Crown honors. That's more than double the 26 that made the list in 2014. Just making the Solution Provider 500 or the 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 even triple-digit growth usually seen only in startups. To be Tech Elite, a company also has to invest heavily in top certifications. Here are the solution providers that had the revenue, growth and technical expertise to be named 2015's Triple Crown winners.
