CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Blough Tech, Inc. to its 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for the fourth consecutive year. 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:
- MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market.
- MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services.
- Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security 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.”
“We are honored to be recognized yet again by CRN’s MSP 500 award. We could not continue to be an award-winning company without the hard work and dedication of each and every team member at Blough Tech,” said Blough Tech CEO Paul Blough.
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
