Company Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today’s IT Channel
Salinas, CA, February 18, 2014 – Alvarez Technology Group, Inc., a leading provider of information technology services in California, announced today that it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of MSP Pioneer 250. The annual list 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.
In today’s world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.
This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and mid-size business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.
“We are very proud to be recognized as a charter member of this new CRN list,” said Luis Alvarez, President and CEO of Alvarez Technology Group. “As an IT service provider that embraced the MSP model over seven years ago, this recognition validates our hard work and success.”
“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”
Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com,
