NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named it to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with innovative approaches to managed services. These services help customers improve operational efficiencies, maximize return on IT investments, and continuously help them navigate the complexities of IT solutions.
In today's fast-moving business environments, MSPs play an increasingly important role in helping companies utilize new technologies without straining their budgets or losing sight of their core values. CRN's MSP 500 list highlights the most forward-thinking of these integral organizations.
"Our customers are at the center of everything we do. Being recognized for the sixth year on CRN's MSP 500 and the Elite 150 honors the shared commitment our employees have for our customers everyday," said Mike Houghton, CSO at Logicalis. "This list not only showcases the importance of managed IT services, but it also shines a spotlight on the innovation and empowerment that Logicalis provides. In the past year, we honed our focus on our key practice areas – IoT, security and cloud – to deliver extraordinary user experience and value. We look forward to continuing to leverage our expertise across our verticals to drive success for our partners and deliver the most effective custom solutions for their business."
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, honoring companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, honoring large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, honoring MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
Logicalis was named to the Elite 150 list for continued excellence in providing managed services to mid-size and enterprise companies. These services span IT Helpdesk, IT Staffing Services, Lifecycle/Asset Management, Managed Security, Managed VOIP, Remote Monitoring, Warranty/Patch/Vendor Management, Co-location, Managed Storage/Backup, and Network Operations Center (NOC).
"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," said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. "The companies on CRN's 2019 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."
CRN will publish the MSP 500 list in the February 2019 issue and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
