ETS Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services
Miamisburg, OH, February 14, 2017 – Expedient Technology Solutions, Stress Free IT, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Expedient Technology Solutions 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.
In 2004, Marcus Thompson founded Expedient Technology Solutions to provide a proactive approach to managing IT infrastructures and critical client applications. ETS provides a broad range of expertise to design, deploy and manage clients’ networks and critical business systems with “Stress Free IT” delivering vital technical support.
“Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “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.”
“We are thrilled to be named to CRN’s MSP 500 list for our efforts in providing Stress Free IT to our clients. As we continue to grow and evolve, part of our focus for 2017 will be addressing security concerns for small business” states Marcus Thompson. “SMBs typically have fewer resources available to monitor and combat cyber threats which makes them easy targets for hackers and other opportunists. Many of these SMB’s also are required to comply with regulations such as PCI or HIPAA and don’t know how to get started. Additionally, optimization of cloud strategies provides opportunities to manage, share and control the data. Utilizing the cloud extends an affordable, expansive platform for securely storing data. A powerful collaboration, our managed and controlled services help our clients with daily operations and keep all team members and mobile users functional and effective during their day.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
