NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Converged Technology Group (www.convergedtechgroup.com), an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the organization to CRN's 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. The annual CRN list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. These solution providers' top-notch offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
"As organizations look to become more operationally efficient, they become increasingly dependent on the availability of mission-critical IT services. As a result, we have seen the emergence of an IT support model in which the existing IT staff leads strategic project initiatives while working with a reliable IT partner who provides the depth of competency required to handle the operational complexities of today's modern hybrid cloud architectures," says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. "This approach has proven to be economical while also dramatically improving IT service levels. Converged Technology Group's Assist360 offering has been specifically designed to meet the continuously evolving needs of our customers as they adopt emerging technologies that drive business value. This alignment is one of the principle reasons we have been included in the CRN MSP 500 and honored as part of the Pioneer 250 this year."
Converged Technology Group's Assist 360° is a cloud-based managed support service that gives clients the monitoring, proactive management, and on-demand support they need to ensure the highest levels of reliability and accessibility. Converged Technology Group's co-managed approach allows clients to take advantage of the solution provider's experienced support team to optimize mission-critical operations while reducing the burden on internal IT staff for smooth 24x7x365 operations. With Assist 360°, the company delivers a highly efficient and cost-effective managed services solution that takes advantage of an innovative cloud-based model to maximize support, increase IT ROI, and lower total cost of ownership, yet can be tailored to meet each client's unique business requirements.
"MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers' changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge."
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-premise and off-premise services; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
