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.
This honor marks the fifth time in the past six years MainSpring has been recognized by CRN. “It’s not enough to be innovative or provide world-class customer service,” said MainSpring Chief Strategy Officer Ray Steen. “Organizations need simplicity, productivity and security to stay ahead of their competition. There’s no better compass than industry best practices and a proactive mentality around technology.” MainSpring has made IT simple and strategic by using industry best practices and applying them to organizations in and around the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area. As a result, small businesses, nonprofits and associations have used the IT roadmap and compliance methodology to align technology to their business initiatives and impact their bottom line.
Managed service providers are integral to the success of businesses everywhere. They empower companies to implement and operate complex technologies while staying within their budgets and keeping focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list identifies the most groundbreaking managed service organizations, with advanced solutions that have endless potential for growth.
This annual 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises, cloud-based security services.
“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.”
