Evanston, IL, February 17, 2015 - Converged Communication Systems (CCS) today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company's 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150. 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.
This year, CRN's industry-focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.
Converged Communication Systems provides fully managed IP telephony/Unified Communication solutions to businesses, as well as comprehensive support. With two state-of-the art operation centers and an expertise staff, CCS delivers both in-house maintenance and support anywhere in the United States.
"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."
"We're incredibly pleased be included in the MSP500 as an Elite 150," Steve Melchiorre and Kevin Rubin, managing partners at CCS, said. "We're very proud of the communication services and pro-active support we provide to our clients every day. Being recognized by CRN is a huge honor and we're looking forward to continuing on our successful path."
