The IT solution providers honored on the list have taken measures to stand out from other top solution providers, earning multiple, premier IT certifications and specializations. These providers also proved to be adaptive, innovative, and quick-thinking in helping their clients through rapid operations changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

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.

“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.”

What's more, CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list serves as the industry standard for top-performing technology integrators, strategic service providers and IT consultants, further reinforcing Align's place as a leading solution provider.
