Tech Elite 250 list recognizes Loffler for deep technical expertise and premier certifications

Loffler Companies is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2018 Tech Elite 250 list by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. 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 suppliers, scaled to their company size. 

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. 

Loffler’s security, Cloud and managed service offerings have undergone significant growth and cultivation to become robust, world-class options, while their security operations center (SOC) offering and IT security assessments is flourishing as well. The IT Consulting and CIO services are a differentiator in the managed services space, as demand for strategic IT planning has become essential.

“Being named to CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list is no small feat,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers. Their pursuit of deep expertise and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices demonstrates an impressive commitment to elevating their businesses—and to providing the best possible customer experience.”
