VIENNA, Va. – Feb. 18, 2016 – Cetrom Information Technology, Inc. (Cetrom), an industry-leading provider of custom cloud solutions that transform the way SMBs succeed, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100 category. 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.
Cetrom was chosen for the 2016 list based on feedback from the CRN editorial team, interviews within the channel and research in The Channel Company’s ChannelBase database of more than 150,000 companies. Formerly honored on the Next-Gen 250 list, Cetrom is recognized for the strength of its cloud and hosting solutions, as well as the reliability of the data centers it manages. The company has maintained a track record of zero downtime throughout its existence and aggressively reinvests 80 percent of its profits back into the company.
“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.”
Christopher Stark, president and CEO, Cetrom, said, “Businesses in every industry are challenged to function faster, better and more cost effectively. Up-to-date technology is necessary to accomplish this and get ahead of the competition. Cetrom prides itself on providing a comprehensive cloud solution that not only offers technology as a utility, but also ensures the highest level of support to guarantee that our clients are performing at their peak. We’re excited that The Channel Company’s CRN has recognized our efforts by naming us one of the 2016 MSP Hosting Service Provider 100.”
