CRN, a brand of The Channel Co., has named two suburban businesses to its annual lists of top tier North American IT solution providers.
Rosemont-based LaSalle Solutions, a division of Fifth Third Bank, was named to CRN's 2021 Tech Elite 250 list. Schaumburg-based Network Data Systems was named to CRN's 2021 Managed Service Provider 500 List in the Elite 150 category for the eighth straight year.
LaSalle Solutions was listed because it has earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to the company's size, CRN said.
Network Data Systems was named to the Managed Service Provider list that identifies North American solution providers who deliver operational efficiencies, IT system improvements, and a higher return rate on their clients' investments.
"NDS appreciates The Channel Company's commitment to recognizing industry leaders and is honored to be once again named to their MSP 500 and Elite 150 lists for 2021," said Wayne Dumas, NDS's chief operating officer.
Each year, The Channel Company's research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-centric technical certifications in the North American IT channel.
