CRN Names GreenPages to “MSP Elite 150” List for Excellence in Managed IT Services
Kittery, ME, February 24, 2017—GreenPages, a leading systems integrator and cloud services company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company 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 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.
GreenPages was singled out in the MSP Elite 150 category for large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in the U.S. whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs, and speed time to market for their own products and services.
“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.”
