Solution Technology Inc., an Indianapolis-based technology firm, chalks up three-in-a-row as winner of The North American Business Partner Leadership Award. The Leadership Award recognizes IBM business partners who achieve excellence in the area of business results, customer satisfaction, certification and compliance. It is the highest award IBM bestows on its business partners and Solution Technology Inc. (STI) was chosen from over 4,000 other contenders nationwide.

"We are proud to be the recipient of this prestigious honor and it is a thrill to be the only three-peat winner in the history of this award," says Jeff Teeter, President of STI. "We’d like to thank our customers, our distributor Support Net, our employees and IBM for helping us to achieve this honor."

"We’ve developed our business around key IBM initiatives such as e-business, business intelligence, server consolidation, ERP, Lotus Notes, High-Availability and ADSM," states Kirk Zaranti, Vice President of Marketing for STI. "It is our expertise in these areas, as well as our ability to offer the full range of IBM products, that has enabled us to grow our business, attract new customers and retain a loyal customer base. We provide total solutions that position our clients not only for today’s complex technology requirements, but also for the resource-hungry applications that will be needed in the future."

STI has also received numerous other awards, including The 1998 Leadership Award from Support Net - the #1 IBM distributor in the nation. Support Net presented this honor to STI for being its number one revenue-producing business partner.
