March 26, 2019

Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – March 26, 2019 VAI, a leading ERP software developer, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named VAI to its 2019 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list honors a select 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. 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.

The inclusion to the 2019 Tech Elite 250 list is a result of VAI’s dedication to offering enterprise software solutions that leverage analytics, business intelligence, mobility, and cloud technology to help customers achieve business excellence. VAI’s technical certifications include companies such as: IBM, Microsoft, and Zebra Technologies Corporation.

“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.”

“VAI is honored to be included by CRN in the 2019 Tech Elite 250,” said Kevin Beasley, CIO, VAI. “With the fast-paced movement and the advancements in technology, we’ve always recognized the need to have VAI employees trained and certified with skillsets that represent our growing customer-base and their cross-industry requirements. We will continue to stay ahead of the technological drivers that demand the very best in training and certification, in order to continue to best serve our customers in the ways they deserve and require.”
