NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ImageQuest announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named them to its 2016 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 top-notch 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-premise and off-premise services; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
ImageQuest was selected for their unique sales approach coupled with their process-oriented service delivery – their Chocolate Cake approach.
"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."
"We've worked hard to attain this level of discipline and standardization in our sales process and our service methodology. With the addition of our Security-as a-Service platform in Q1 2016, our portfolio of IT services is the most comprehensive offering for small and mid-sized businesses in our space," said Milton Bartley, Co-Founder, President and CEO, ImageQuest. "We are proud to be recognized by The Channel Company as pioneers in Managed Services."
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
