Toronto, ON – September 30, 2016 – The creme de le creme of the channel community gathered last evening at Computer Dealer News’ 14th annual Channel Elite Awards at the Paramount Conference & Event Venue in Woodbridge, ON. The night was a celebration of leading solutions providers around the nation, their achievements and the innovations that help grow the information technology sector in Canada.

“Today’s solution provider has evolved to become the trusted advisor for IT. This group of innovative technology companies continues to provide Canadian businesses with a competitive advantage when it comes to cloud, mobility, security, managed services and more,” said Paolo Del Nibletto, editor of CDN – Computer Dealer News, Canada’s No. 1 IT Channel publication and web site.

CDN played host to over 200 solution providers, and acknowledged their efforts within the last twelve months. The winners were chosen by our esteemed panel of judges and on the basis of five important criteria: Innovation, Improved Sales or Revenue, Improved Efficiency, Customer Service, and “the X-Factor” – where the solution provider has gone above and beyond industry norms or created a special one of a kind solution that made an impact.

It was a big night for all of the winners, though Mississauga-ON based Infinite IT Solutions stole the show, taking home a handful of awards including a Gold for Best Service Organization and Best Security Solution.

“Infinite IT Solutions has really worked hard to transform themselves into providing higher value solutions and services and as a result their customers are flourishing,” Del Nibletto said.

But the most coveted award of the night, The Solution Provider of the Year, was awarded to Vancouver-based MediaValet and their cloud solutions.
