In 2021, Rockwell Automation launched a new System Integrator (SI) Program as part of their PartnerNetwork™ that delivers dedicated SI enablement, rewards a partner’s performance, and provides top partners with more substantial benefits and higher recognition. The former program of Recognized System Integrators and Solution Partners was phased out and replaced by a new tiered program model—Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum—that reflects partner competence, revenue performance, and strategic alignment with Rockwell Automation.
Prior the roll-out of the new System Integrator Program, Cybertrol Engineering was a Rockwell Automation Solution Partner. Since the launch of the new program, Cybertrol is now a GOLD Level System Integrator Partner having achieved a higher level of sales success and meeting the requirements of three or more competencies of the program including Control (Control), Information (Analytics), and Process (PlantPAX).

Rockwell Automation System Integrator partners are distinguished based on the tier they qualify for. Participants in the program can qualify for any combination of disciplines that are appropriate for the markets they serve. To achieve a capability, a system integrator must complete the competency curriculum that has been established as part of the program.
GOLD Level Requirement: 3+ competencies within or across the Rockwell Automation Technology Disciplines and higher level of sales success.
