OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. (PRWEB) February 22, 2018
Peters & Associates, a Chicagoland-based leader in delivering technology and managed support services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named them to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“We are honored to be recognized by CRN for our work providing SMBs the ability to outsource the level of IT management and tasks that makes sense for their organization, in a scalable and cost-effective manner. With our decades of experience and hundreds of Chicago-area companies served, we’ve created unique levels of IT Support Services package options that best serve our clients’ needs,” said Bruce Ward, Vice President of Business Strategy. “We have also enhanced these solutions in recent years with a focus on information security to provide additional peace of mind.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at http://www.CRN.com/msp500
