February 14, 2022 – MicroAge, The Digital Transformation Experts®, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named MicroAge to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2022. The annual CRN MSP 500 list recognizes leading North American service providers changing the IT channel landscape and empowering end users with forward-thinking approaches to managed services. Recognized for innovation, the MSP 500 hails services organizations that simplify IT solutions and accelerate efficiency while maximizing return on investment.
With many clients still adapting to the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital to the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs empower organizations to better leverage intricate technologies while helping them focus on core business goals without financial strain.
The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections. The MSP Pioneer 250, recognizes companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market. The MSP Elite 150, honors large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services. The Managed Security 100, highlights MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
This year marks MicroAge’s fourth consecutive appearance on the MSP 500 list, in the Elite 150 category. The achievement demonstrates the company’s ongoing growth across its managed services, cloud, and security portfolio.
“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
“Landing on the CRN MSP 500 list in the Elite 150 category again this year is a meaningful achievement for MicroAge,” said Larry Fulop, MicroAge vice president of technology and marketing. “Empowering smarter work through technology has been MicroAge’s mission for nearly half a century. MicroAge offers a complete end-to-end services portfolio that’s rapidly expanding along with a growing investment in company talent, training, certifications, partnerships, and technologies to meet—and exceed—the needs of today’s organizations as an elite managed services provider.”
