The Solutions Team Receives National Recognition for Excellence in Managed IT Services
Cloud-Based Solutions Provider Named to Prestigious CRN MSP500 for 2017
BRANDON, Miss. – The Solutions Team®, a leading provider of cloud-based hosting and managed services solutions is pleased to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its 2017 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 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 Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
The Solutions Team has leveraged its proven suite of cloud-based managed IT services and solutions to achieve sustained growth within a 35-state footprint across the U.S. The company provides services ranging from Virtual IT (network, desktop and Microsoft Exchange management) and IT-Vault (online backup) to IT-EX (high availability Microsoft Exchange) and IT-Live (high availability server replication) to businesses of all sizes seeking greater functionality, security, flexibility to work remotely from anywhere via the Internet, and protection of critical server data (financials, email messages, databases, etc.).
“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 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”
“We are honored to receive this national recognition from CRN® and The Channel Company, the foremost media authority serving technology suppliers, solution providers and IT professionals,” said Todd Gooden, The Solutions Team’s Chief Executive Officer. “I believe we have the most knowledgeable, hardest working employees in the business - and I am so happy to see them rewarded for their passion and commitment to serving our customers.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
