Red Level, the Novi-based technology consulting and solutions company announced today CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Red Level to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with best practice approaches to delivering managed services. Red Level’s service offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiency, 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.
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.
Red Level was chosen for Pioneer 250 recognition owing to its considerable history in delivering enterprise-grade IT solutions and services to small and medium-sized businesses. The company’s strong emphasis on managed services, ability to customize service offerings to specific client needs, and success in attracting and retaining managed services clients within a highly competitive regional marketplace have made it an acknowledged regional leader within the field.
“Providing high-quality Managed IT services has been a pillar of Red Level for nearly a decade. This award recognizes our team for the hard work and dedication they devote to our clients’ success every day,” said David King, Red Level CEO. “The bar is constantly being raised in the Managed IT services field as clients demand more value out of their IT investment. We expect that adding cloud-based technologies, such as Microsoft’s Office 365, Power BI, and Enterprise Mobility Suite, to our offerings will continue to differentiate our name in the marketplace and provide unique value to both our new and existing clients, today and in the future.”
“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.”
