Managed Service Provider Pioneer 250 CRN Magazine, the technology industry’s leading publication for and about channel partners, has included SLPowers as one of the “Pioneer 250” on its 2014 list of 500 top managed service providers.
SLPowers Named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider 500 List
Company Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today’s IT Channel
West Palm Beach, FL, February 18, 2014 – SLPowers, Home of Guaranteed Networks, today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America 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.
In today’s world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.
This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.
“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”
“We are honored to have been selected by CRN Magazine, the technology industry’s leading publication, for the Pioneer 250 List of Managed Services Providers. Hopefully, we can continue to blaze new trails in our industry and share best practices with our MSP brethren, as we bring tighter security integration and other new, game-changing features into both our cloud based and on-premise deliverables.”
– Rory Sanchez, CEO
