Being recognized as an elite hosting and managed service provider is a reflection of the efforts and pride we take in designing customized hybrid IT solutions and delivering them through local hosting and hardware service lines.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 19, 2015
OneNeck® IT Solutions today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. Among the MSP 500 list, OneNeck is included on the MSP Hosting 100 list.
“We are pleased to be named one of the country’s top hosting providers,” says Phil LaForge, president and CEO of OneNeck IT Solutions. “Being recognized as an elite hosting and managed service provider is a reflection of the efforts and pride we take in designing customized hybrid IT solutions and delivering them through local hosting and hardware service lines to help our customers be successful in their business.”
The annual MSP 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.
In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can be overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.
This year, CRN’s industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.
OneNeck teams with its customers to provide day-to-day management of their IT infrastructure. This allows OneNeck’s customers the opportunity to have their IT leadership team focus on initiatives that make a difference to their customers and their topline growth, while OneNeck monitors and manages their IT infrastructure.
“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”
Coverage of the MSP500 is featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at CRN.com. For more information about OneNeck, visit oneneck.com.
