OMAHA, Neb. (March 18, 2024) – CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named FNTS to its prestigious 2024 Tech Elite 250 list for a fifth straight year. This yearly compilation showcases solution providers based in the U.S. or Canada that have distinguished themselves by attaining top-tier certifications and specializations from leading technology vendors in the areas of infrastructure, cloud and security.

To help customers navigate today’s IT complexities and harness the advantages of state-of-the-art solutions, solution providers—ranging from strategic service providers and systems integrators to managed service providers and value-added resellers—strive to uphold rigorous levels of training and certification from strategic IT vendors, often aiming for the pinnacle tiers within these vendors' partner programs.

“Over the past year, FNTS has made significant investments in our strategic partner programs to provide added value to our clients,” said FNTS President Kim Whittaker, who was named among CRN’s Power 80 Women of the Channel in 2023. “We continue to develop new services that seamlessly complement our existing portfolio by drawing from both internal capabilities and partner-provided services.”

FNTS recently established partnerships to support clients in the following managed services areas: multicloud optimization and modernization; mainframe optimization; AI and machine learning; application modernization; and data management and observability.

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 highlights leading-edge solution providers within the IT landscape, distinguished by their comprehensive technical proficiency, expertise, and commitment to achieving top-level certifications in critical technology areas," said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. Content, and Executive Editor of CRN at The Channel Company. "These solution providers persistently strengthen their capabilities to bring the advanced IT solutions to market that customers need.”
