BlackPoint IT Services, one of the Northwest’s largest managed IT services providers (MSP), today announced it has been named to CRN Magazine’s Managed Services Provider MSP 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250 providers and ranked 142nd on MSPmentor’s top 501 global managed IT services providers. These annual lists recognize the top managed IT services providers and technology consultants in North America (CRN) and the world (MSPmentor) whose cutting-edge approach to managed IT services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies and cut costs allowing them to put more energy towards the innovation and marketing of their own product or service.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a top managed services provider by these distinguished publications,” said James Watson, CEO of BlackPoint IT Services. “We continually strive to improve the level of IT service we provide our clients, and it’s rewarding to be recognized for these efforts.”

This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.

MSPmentor provides a global ranking of the world’s top 501 managed IT services providers based on annual recurring revenue, growth, devices managed, and more.

“We love being a managed services provider,” beams Watson. “It allows us to have a more vested interest in the stability of our client’s network and be right at the client’s side when things don’t work. It’s great to be in a position where we can be more proactive.”
