CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lanspeed to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP 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 who deliver excellence in Managed IT Services.
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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
Lanspeed was selected to the MSP Pioneer 250 category as a result of its year-over-year growth in managed services, its high customer satisfaction, and leadership in the MSP industry.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “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. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated the ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“We have an incredible team of talented IT professionals who – day after day – provide unrivaled customer service and decades of combined IT experience to our clients,” said Chris Chirgwin, CEO of Lanspeed. “Nearly every day, I hear positive feedback from our clients who appreciate our humble and friendly approach along with our sincere desire to help them achieve their company goals.”
