Centaris Named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider 500 List

Company Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today’s IT Channel

Troy, MI, February 18, 2015 – Centaris today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage.

In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.

Centaris offers IT Consulting, Managed IT services, Hosted VoIP Solutions and Cloud Hosting Solutions, as well as EMR Medical Solutions/Consulting and PCI Security. With over 30 years of experience serving Southeastern and Northern Michigan, Centaris can maximize your company’s efficiency by taking care of all your IT worries, so you can focus on your business and your bottom-line.

“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.”

“Centaris has been honored with this recognition now two years in a row and we couldn’t be more pleased,” added Curtis Hicks, President and CEO of Centaris. “The CCR team takes pride in the services we provide for our clients and use honors like these as motivation to keep striving forward.”

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com,
