Sterling Heights, MI, March 5, 2019 – Centaris, announced today that CRN, a brand of the Channel Company, has named Centaris to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category.
This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with innovative approaches to managed services. These services help customers improve operational efficiencies, maximize return on IT investments and continuously help them navigate the complexities of IT solutions. CRN’s MSP 500 list identifies the most groundbreaking managed service organizations, with advanced solutions that have endless potential for growth.
“It’s truly an honor to be included on the MSP 500 list for the fifth time since 2014,” said Curtis Hicks II, President & CEO of Centaris. “This award recognizes our dedication to our clients and the ongoing hard work from our determined Centaris team. It’s a complete team effort to achieve what we’ve been doing best since 1981, solving IT problems.”
This annual 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused on off-premises, cloud based security services.
“Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on CRN’s 2019 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
