Hauppauge, NY (Mar 28, 2016) Custom Computer Specialists announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Custom Computer Specialists to its 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.

Custom Computer Specialists’ blend of technical expertise, project leadership, industry knowledge, and strategic guidance helps clients across multiple industries achieve long-term success from their technology investments. These positive outcomes enable Custom to build enduring customer relationships as a trusted technology partner. Successful results reflect Custom’s technology industry thought leadership, commitment to ongoing training and certifications, and vision. Industry awards and recognition of Custom’s accomplishments confirm their respected position as one of the largest and leading IT services providers in the Northeast.

“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.”

“We are honored to again rank among the elite companies on CRN’s 2016 Tech Elite 250 list. I’m proud of all my team has accomplished this year,” said Gregory Galdi, President and founder of Custom. “This recognition is due in no small part to the hard work put forth by our employees and our clients as they continually trust us as a leader in technology.”
