VIENNA, Va. – March 1, 2017 –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 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. 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: 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 Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
Cetrom was chosen for the 2017 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 leading the cloud and hosted solution industry in innovation as well as providing its customers with reliable service and support. 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.
Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company, said, “Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America. 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.”
Christopher Stark, president and CEO, Cetrom, said, “The technology and cloud market is always evolving and it is our job to provide our customers with peace of mind that their system will always work no matter what. We pride ourselves on providing cloud solutions that not only meet, but exceed our customers’ expectations so they can focus on their daily operations and their bottom line. We’re excited that The Channel Company’s CRN has recognized our efforts by naming us one of the MSP Pioneer 250.”
