Emtec Named a 2020 Tech Elite Solution Provider by CRN® for 10th Year


Jacksonville, FL, March 27, 2020 – Bridgenext (formerly Emtec, Inc.), a global IT consultancy, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Bridgenext to its 2020 Tech Elite 250 list for the 10th year. This annual list acknowledges the top tier 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 organizations have differentiated themselves as premier solution providers, earning multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.

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. Solution providers that have earned these elite designations — enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support — are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

Over the last year, Bridgenext continued to deepen its expertise in core partnerships, including Oracle, Salesforce, Microsoft, HP and BMC, that support its flagship solution offerings. The firm has also made significant investments in technologies that further augment its suite of services in the areas of intelligent process automation, cyber security, analytics, cloud and application engineering. Bridgenext continues to expand their vertical capabilities as well with key focus on Manufacturing, Financial Services, Transportation & Logistics, Healthcare, K-12 Education and Utilities.

Additional notable partnerships and expertise added or enhanced in the last year includes:

  • Automation Anywhere
  • AWS
  • Cybraics
  • Digital Defense (DDI)
  • Financial Force
  • UiPath
  • Veeam
  • Veracode
  • WhiteSource

“Solution providers that continue to pursue vendor certifications and extend their skill sets across various technologies and IT practices are proving their commitment to delivering the greatest business value to their customers through an incomparable level of service,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our CRN Tech Elite 250 list recognizes leading solution providers with expansive technical knowledge and esteemed certifications for exactly that reason.”

“Enriching our technical competencies and industry capabilities, to help our clients, is a continuous effort ingrained into our culture,” said Sunil Misra, CEO, Emtec, Inc. “As an IT consulting organization, our technical consultants are one of our greatest differentiators. They are the foundation of the consulting and guidance we provide to our clients, and they serve an essential role in our Client for Life approach. Kudos to our team for their unrelenting drive for personal development, team innovation and growth.”

“On a personal note and on behalf of our entire Bridgenext organization, we do understand that the world is adjusting to uncertain times right now and we hope everyone stays safe and healthy,” Mr. Misra added. “Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for any needs, we are fully operational and here to support you.”
