February 16, 2017 – Arraya Solutions announced today that it has been named to CRN’s 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, 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 Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
Expectations among MSPs who administer to data center environments involve providing exceptional support for core technologies through break/fix help, supplementing on-premise IT, and executing moves, adds, and changes. Arraya Solutions’ Managed Services expand further, serving as a trusted adviser capable of partnering with on-premise IT to discover what’s working within an organization, highlight possible improvements, and design and execute advancement strategies.
“Managed Service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN’s 2017 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”
“We’re thrilled to have earned a place on the MSP500 list in the Elite 150 category for the third straight year,” said Daniel Lifshutz, CEO of Arraya Solutions. “At Arraya, we stand beside customers not only as a provider of Managed Services, but as a trusted business partner. The MSP500 award is a validation of this work that we take so much pride in. Continued transformation has become the norm in IT, and it is a reality we are eager to help our customers thrive in.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
