NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - March 29, 2012) - LPS Integration announced today it has been named to CRN's second annual list of the Tech Elite 250. Companies on the 2012 Tech Elite 250 list represent an elite group of IT Solution Providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most technical certifications in the IT Channel.
In compiling the list, CRN editors worked with the UBM Channel research group and a team of outside experts to define the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications have enabled solution providers to deliver the most premium products, services and support to their North American customers.
LPS Integration takes great pride in the quality of its engineering team and sets very high goals that each team member must achieve. "We have developed a training program for each of our three teams and all team members must attend a series of classes and obtain top industry certifications in order to meet and maintain our employment standards," says Frank Pulliza, VP and COO, of LPS. He adds, "In addition to specialized, national training programs, LPS has its own training center and delivers authorized Citrix and Microsoft courses in order to develop our team and our client's engineers. We believe educated clients are the best clients to have."
"The 2012 Tech Elite 250 list recognizes an exclusive group of Solution Providers that have shown a dedication to helping customers innovate while reducing costs," said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director at UBM Channel. "By identifying and adapting to the skills and training needed to best serve today's customers, members of the Tech Elite 250 have proven their commitment to delivering the products and services that today's end-users value most."
