CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored FNTS on its 2021 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list features IT solution providers of all sizes in North America that have earned cutting-edge technical certifications from leading technology suppliers. These companies have separated themselves from the pack as top solution providers, earning multiple, premier IT certifications, specializations and partner program designations from industry-leading technology providers.

Businesses rely on solution providers for an enormous amount of technologies, services and expertise to help them meet today’s IT challenges — whether it’s a new implementation or digital transformation initiatives. To meet these demands, solution providers and MSPs must maintain high levels of training and certification from IT vendors and achieve the highest tiers within those vendors’ partner programs.

Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors distinguish the most client-driven technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have earned these high honors — enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support — are then selected from a pool of online applicants as well as from The Channel Company’s solution provider database.

This past year, FNTS supported the rapidly evolving needs of clients that had to adapt to a new normal in the way they operate, due to COVID-19. Ensuring the highest levels of training and certifications from partner programs played a big role in navigating the pandemic.

“FNTS prides itself on the deep partnerships it has with Microsoft, IBM, VMware, Dell EMC and Palo Alto, allowing us to be on the leading edge of new offerings, service developments, certifications, trainings and specializations that differentiate our offerings from the competition,” said Kim Whittaker, President of FNTS. “We consider each of our team members to be a trusted advisor to our clients, and we are making investments in our team through our partner programs.”

"CRN's Tech Elite 250 list highlights the top solution providers in the IT channel with the most in-depth technical knowledge, expertise, and certifications for providing the best level of service for their customers," said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. "These solution providers have continued to extend their talents and abilities across various technologies and IT practices, demonstrating their commitment to really conveying the most exceptional business value to their customers."

Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN® Magazine and online at
