Park Place Named One of 2019 Tech Elite Solution Providers by CRN

Tech Elite 250 List Recognizes Highest-Achieving IT Solution Providers in Vendor Certifications

March 25, 2019 – Park Place Technologies announced today that CRN ®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Park Place to its 2019 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list honors a select group of North American IT solution providers that has earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size. These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.

To compile this 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 earned these elite designations— which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

Park Place Technologies employs a comprehensive team of field service and Level III engineers that have, on average, 15+ years of direct OEM experience. They each bring with them the certifications that they received while employed with the OEM. Once hired by Park Place they are then cross-trained on a quarterly basis to work on a variety of platforms. This allows our customers to develop relationships with their primary engineer, no matter which OEMs are represented in the Customer’s data center(s).

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list recognizes solution providers with extensive technical knowledge and premier certifications,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Pursuit of vendor certifications and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices, proves a solution provider is committed to delivering maximum business value from those technologies and giving their customers the highest level of service.”

Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com/TechElite250.
