WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, February 16, 2016 – CRN Magazine, a recognized voice in the IT industry, named SLPowers today to the 2016 Elite 150, a subcategory of their 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their top-notch 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 MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
As the first MSP headquartered in South Florida, SLPowers has active managed clients dating back to 1999. The company continues to be one of the largest South Florida based MSPs, providing their clients with secure and stable computing environments across hybrid on-premise, data center, mobile and cloud based platforms.
“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
“We are proud to be included in CRN’s Elite 150 list”, said SLPowers CEO, Rory Sanchez. “The efficiencies and productivity that have been afforded to us by the information age are truly incredible but with these benefits have come great complexities and a mind-boggling number of security risks. Providing our clients with secure and stable computing environments is what fuels our every day and it is an honor to be recognized by our industry for doing what we do.”
