NetStandard is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, we have been named to The Channel Company’s CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 List. In accordance with the List, NetStandard is listed as 12th in the MSP Hosting 100 category.
This award recognizes managed service providers and hosting companies that display an exemplary approach to the delivery of managed IT services. The annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to:
- Improve operational efficiencies
- Elicit greater value from their IT investments
- Successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantages
As more and more companies move toward a model of outsourced IT, the expertise of managed service providers has become increasingly important to organizations. By identifying the top 500 managed service providers in North America, CRN, a leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers, seeks to assist companies’ selection and adoption of managed services. CRN’s list is designed to help these companies make decisions about their technology in terms of consumption and procurement in a landscape that can feel overwhelming.
This year, CRN’s industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market. NetStandard is pleased to offer expertise in both on-premise and cloud-based technologies for small and mid-sized businesses.
“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”
