The Customer Experience

When you partner with Arraya, you get much more than industry-leading IT solutions and services. You get a team of individuals who are as committed to your business as you are. Our employees have the technical skills and experience necessary to resolve any issues you may have, but it’s our people skills and attention to the customer experience that set us apart. We focus on building strong relationships with our customers that instill comfort, trust and peace of mind.

Arraya’s ASCEND methodology puts the customer experience at the heart of every engagement we undertake. Rather than simply connecting organizations with the latest and buzziest tools, ASCEND emphasizes finding the right solution for a given use case and supporting it from the blueprint phase throughout its lifecycle.


CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list ranks the top revenue-generating technology integrators in the U.S. and Canada whose forward-thinking approach to the channel has helped them evolve and thrive in today's cloud and services-driven IT era. The list spans eight categories from hardware and software sales, to managed IT services. Arraya has been featured on this list for the past eight years.

CRN's Tech Elite 250 list recognizes an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors. These technical certifications have enabled solution providers to deliver an outstanding level of premium products, services and support to their North American customers. Arraya has earned a spot on this list for eleven consecutive years.

CRN's Fast Growth 100 list features the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry based on two years' growth of net sales. Fast Growth 100 companies are considered some of the best and brightest of the channel - companies that have managed to fight strong economic headwinds to achieve impressive revenue growth.

The Inc.500|5000 list recognizes America’s fastest-growing private companies. Arraya was ranked #3073 on the overall list, #94 of the top 100 companies in Pennsylvania, and #79 of companies in the Philadelphia metro area.

CRN's Manage Service Provider 500 list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage. Arraya has earned a place on this list for the past seven years.

The Marcum Innovator of the Year Awards celebrate companies in the Greater Philadelphia Area whose forward-thinking approaches are driving real, meaningful changes in their fields.

The Cisco Charged Innovation Award from Tech Data is presented to partners who have gone above and beyond selling Cisco products and are creating game-changing solutions and tools built upon a base of Cisco technology. This award was presented to Arraya based on the strength of a number of projects including building a Managed Security Service around the Cisco Sourcefire platform, an IoT practice focused around manufacturing and a Big Data practice focused on helping organizations centralize and monetize disparate data.

SmartCEO's Corporate Culture Awards honor companies whose creative and collaborative workplace cultures have helped them improve performance and sustain a competitive advantage. Arraya was honored for its open culture, which empowers employees of all ranks to feel comfortable taking an active role in the direction of the company. This culture I built around the idea that employees should never feel bound to the status quo, because if they are, it will prevent the company from improving and growing. This is instilled early on with new hires and reinforced regularly during employee interactions with everyone from their direct supervisors and up through Arraya's leadership team.
