Chattanooga-based InfoSystems among CRN's Tech Elite 250

InfoSystems, a Chattanooga-based information technology and cybersecurity firm, was awarded recognition as one of CRN's Tech Elite 250, a designation comprised of information technology (IT) service providers in the U.S. and Canada that demonstrate the highest level of certifications from major technology manufacturers.

CRN, the leading industry magazine for IT and cybersecurity providers, provides IT channel news, analysis, and insight. Tech Elite 250 is among the media brand's leading lists that help clients make more informed decisions about service providers. InfoSystems, which provides service across the Southeastern United States, has been included in the ranks of the Tech Elite 250 for four years.

CRN evaluates candidates for its prestigious Tech Elite 250 list not just on the number of certifications and partnerships but the depth of these relationships. InfoSystems is an IBM Platinum Partner, in addition to significant level partnerships with Cisco, Dell Technologies, HPE, Microsoft, Infinidat, VMWare, and others.

"Our technical sales and engineering team of more than 25 IT professionals holds hundreds of certifications," said Josh Davis, vice president of marketing at InfoSystems. "Our depth of experience among engineers and sales volume is impressive, especially for a market like Chattanooga and the surrounding region."
