NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Logicalis to its 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investment.
"We're in an age of digital transformation, and each organization we serve is at a different point in their journey toward digital enablement," says David Leech, Vice President, Cloud and Managed Services, Logicalis US. "As businesses begin to feel the impacts of cloud, mobility, big data and social strategies, they realize they need a partner that can help them meet higher standards in automation, control, and security. Today's CIOs know their jobs no longer revolve solely around technology, but also the delivery of services to support business demand. Because Logicalis has a long history as a trusted extension of our clients' internal IT teams, CRN has recognized us as an Elite 150 managed service provider for four consecutive years, an honor we are proud to have achieved and an acknowledgement that serves as a valuable benchmark for clients looking for a managed services relationship that can stand the test of time."
Through its wide array of remote, over-the-wire managed services and as-a-service offerings, Logicalis provides monitoring and management along with the IT resources needed to ensure 24x7x365 availability of high-performance, business-critical IT services. With nearly two decades of experience, Logicalis knows what to monitor and which alarm thresholds to use to proactively identify and respond to events before they impact users. Its knowledgeable staff is also capable of providing the performance metrics, systems analyses, and business intelligence data that enterprise organizations need to maximize the capabilities of their IT solutions and the computing experience of their end users. And with years of experience working with international clients, Logicalis also understands the complexities involved in delivering multi-national managed services solutions; through its Optimal Services program, an international common services platform, multi-national clients receive true consistency of services regardless of geography.
"Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America," says 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 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers' changing needs and help them get the most out of their 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 Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
