SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
OneNeck® IT Solutions, an end-to-end IT solutions and cloud hosting provider, today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500. More specifically, OneNeck is included on the MSP Managed Hosting Service Provider 100 list. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.
In today's world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.
This year, CRN’s MSP 500 is broken down into three groups, including:
- MSP Elite 150—large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services;
- MSP Pioneer 250—who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and
- MSP Hosting Service Provider 100—who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.
“Earning recognition on the MSP Hosting Service Provider 500 list is an honor,” says Phil LaForge, CEO of OneNeck. “Our employees work very hard to ensure our customers are satisfied with our managed services and with our company’s products across the IT spectrum. Earning this recognition shows we are on the right course, but we will not rest. Rather, we will continue working to earn the trust of our customers and potential customers by listening to their needs and then customizing the best possible IT solution.”
OneNeck owns and operates four Tier 3 data centers in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and manages two Tier 2 data centers in Arizona. The company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems Inc., also offers a full suite of IT solutions. This includes: cloud and hosting solutions; ReliaCloud™ enterprise cloud services; managed services; ERP application management; professional services; and IT hardware.
“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”
