Access Systems Named CRN® Triple Crown Award Winner

Fourth Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers
WAUKEE, IOWA, October 4, 2017 – Access Systems, your complete office technology solution, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Access Systems with its esteemed 2017 Triple Crown Award. 40 North American solution providers had the necessary revenue, growth and technical expertise to be recognized on three of CRN’s pre-eminent solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year.
CRN assembles lists and rankings each year to recognize solution providers who are setting the bar in the IT industry, including the Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest-level certifications from leading vendors.
It is a considerable achievement for a solution provider to make any one of these lists; to make it onto all three, however—as this year’s Triple Crown Award winners have done—is a big achievement. A company must simultaneously have enough revenue to be ranked on the Solution Provider 500 list, record double- or triple-digit growth for recognition on the Fast Growth 150, and invest heavily in top certifications to attain Tech Elite 250 status.
Starting in 1986, Access Systems is one of the Midwest’s premier office technology providers and has experienced double digit growth since 2005. The team offers a range of services and solutions for businesses of all sizes, from copiers and printers to IT, phone systems to document imaging.
“We’re thrilled to have been honored with the 2017 Triple Crown award and be recognized alongside some of the top IT solution providers across North America,” Shane Sloan, President and CEO of Access Systems said. “We’re excited for the future and looking forward to continuing to offer high quality IT solutions for our customers.”
“This year’s CRN Triple Crown Award winners boast multiple, advanced technical certifications from leading vendors, rank among the top-earning IT solution providers in North America, and are some of the fastest-growing organizations in the channel today,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These over-achieving businesses have set the standard for success in the strategic service provider era and are leading the channel into an exciting new future.”
The 2017 Triple Crown Award winners will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at
