EO Johnson Named to Managed Service Provider 500 List by CRN10 Feb, 2015
Wausau, WI – EO Johnson Business Technologies Locknet® Managed IT Services has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the Pioneer 250. The MSP500 is an annual list which recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs, and speed time to market for their own products and services.
CRN’s MSP500 list is broken down into three categories:
MSP Elite 150 – large data center-focused solution providers offering on-premise and off-premise services
MSP Pioneer 250 (the category EO Johnson received recognition in) – a business model weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and mid-size-business market
MSP Hosting 100 – own and operate their own data centers and provide subscription-based outsourced services
CRN has identified the top 500 MSPs to help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers. CRN is the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers. Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com .
“We are thrilled to receive this unsolicited recognition from CRN,” said Mary Jo Johnson, owner/CEO – EO Johnson Business Technologies. “In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations who have numerous choices. This endorsement from a respected third party helps give businesses confidence in the providers they look at.”
“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 businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”
