Overland Park, KS February 19, 2019 – ISG Technology announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ISG Technology to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with innovative approaches to managed services. These services help customers improve operational efficiencies, maximize return on IT investments, and continuously help them navigate the complexities of IT solutions.
Managed service providers are integral to the success of businesses everywhere. They empower companies to implement and operate complex technologies while staying within their budgets and keeping focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list identifies the most groundbreaking managed service organizations, with advanced solutions that have endless potential for growth.
This annual list is divided into three categories:
- MSP Pioneer 250 – recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market
- MSP Elite 150 – recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services
- Managed Security 100 – recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises, cloud-based security services.
“Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on CRN’s 2019 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
ISG’s managed service offering is centered around a core set of services such as 24×7 network monitoring, proactive alerting, patching and updating, infrastructure maintenance and a help desk to keep users productive. Customers also have the ability to add advanced services such as cloud backup and replication, hosted voice, managed security, Office 365+ and more.
“Our goal is to help unlock new possibilities for our customers,” commented ISG Technology CEO, Ben Foster. “And the managed services offering is a critical piece to doing this. We take technology maintenance off their plate so they can focus on initiatives that help drive business growth. When you combine this with one of the best professional services and technology advisory teams in the Midwest, we are able to help our clients in so many ways.”
