ATLANTA, GEORGIA – February 16, 2016 — Orion Technology Services, an award-winning provider of holistic IT solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Orion to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list of the top technology providers and consultants in North America.
Orion is a holistic provider of managed IT solutions, cloud computing, security and professional services. The company was selected as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. The annual list honors those cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
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.
“Orion is proud to be named to this exclusive list of leaders in the MSP space,” said Ryan Elliott, VP of Operations at Orion Technology Services. “Our goal has always been to enable our clients to leverage technology as a competitive advantage while maintaining focus on their core business goals. This award is a testament to our employees and their dedication to the highest levels of customer service and technical support.”
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 MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
