With a global pandemic, a faltering economy and national turmoil over racial injustice, 2020 has been a year of challenges. For the IT industry and the channel community, it also has been a year of sudden shifts in demand for IT products and services as customers moved to a work-from-home model that required more laptop PCs, collaboration tools and remote support.
And yet many solution providers that exceled during the economic expansion in recent years are continuing to thrive this year by building on their records of rapid growth and leveraging strengths such as their technical proficiency and deep service offerings.
Each year CRN develops lists and rankings of solution providers, including the Solution Provider 500, the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, ranking the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which identifies solution providers with the highest-level certifications from major IT vendors.
And each year a number of solution providers make all three lists—an impressive accomplishment. This year 44 solution providers pulled off that feat to become the 2020 class of CRN Triple Crown winners.
