Structured Nationally Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services
PORTLAND, Ore. (Feb. 16, 2016) – Structured announced today that it was named to the Elite 150 of CRN’s 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list for North America. CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, compiles this annual list to recognize solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services.
Structured offers managed services for security and business continuity, virtual infrastructure, mobility, messaging and collaboration, and hosted app delivery. Further, the company will even customize packages – a move that lets clients choose the perfect level of service. Each of these offerings help customers navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies and maximize return on IT investments.
“We saw a need among customers of all sizes for planned and predictable IT engagements across their enterprises, from the network edge, to the data center, to the cloud,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “We created our suite of services to bridge common gaps in our clients’ IT infrastructures, and developed a talented and professional team of engineers to deliver exceptional customer service for planned projects, ongoing maintenance and even unplanned response incidents.”
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining budgets and to stay focused on core business initiatives. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
“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.”
Specifically, the MSP Elite 150 – to which Structured belongs – spotlights large, data-center focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services.
“Membership in the Elite 150 is an honor and a reflection of our devotion to the business success of our customers,” said John Whitford, Structured’s managed services director. “We will continue to invest in every facet of Structured’s managed services, be they on-premise or off. We strive to provide a competitive, valuable and predictable experience for our clients.”
The full MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
