TAMPA, Fla., March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vology, the Managed IT Service Provider, is honored to announce its placement in the Elite 150 category of CRN's 2017 Managed Service Provider 500 list. This annual list recognizes companies in North America with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services.
Managed service providers are part of a fast-growing segment of the IT channel, according to CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. MSPs help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
"This is quite the accomplishment for our team and company," said Barry Shevlin, CEO of Vology. "It's an honor to be recognized in the Elite 150 category of such a prestigious industry list of the most forward-thinking and innovative organizations. Vology is one of four managed service providers located in Florida and the only Tampa-based company to be featured on the MSP Elite 150. At Vology, we enjoy helping and watching our customers succeed. While we are managing their IT infrastructures, businesses are given the freedom to focus on their strategic initiatives."
The MSP 500 list is divided into three categories: MSP Pioneer 250, MSP Elite 150 and Managed Security 100. The MSP Elite 150 recognizes large, data center-focused managed service providers with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services.
"Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN's 2017 MSP 500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers' changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments."
