Company News | Awards

Internetwork Engineering (IE) today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company's 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150.  This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit great value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to acheive greater competitive advantage.

In today's world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations.  The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming.  To help facilitate companies' selection and adoption of managed services providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.

This year, CRN's industry-focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories:  100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise professional services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted towards managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.

"Since our inception in 1996, we've partnered closely with our clients to understand their needs and deliver reliable solutions," stated Chuck Steiner, President and CTO, Internetwork Engineering.  "With the rapidly changing expectations for mobile business, secure, scalable cloud solutions and predictable financial models, our clients are shifting their focus from operational IT projects to business outcome driven IT projects.  To help our clients successfully navigate this transition, IE has built both IT strategy and managed service offerings, both of which are growing rapidly.  We are pleased to be recognized by our customers and CRN for our managed service achievements."

"The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology.  Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.  "We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their business to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success."

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online
