NetGain Technologies Named To CRN's Managed Service Provider 500 List

Thursday, February 20, 2014

NetGain Technologies on Thursday announced it has been named to CRN’s inaugural Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user clients in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.

The IT spectrum is changing rapidly- growing at unprecedented rates- making it more difficult than ever for end users to make wise technology decisions. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to clarify sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to simplify to the decision-making process.

Being classified as a MSP Elite 150 company places NetGain Technologies among large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services. NetGain Technologies boasts 80 systems engineers and over 30 remote systems engineers who combine to offer service with more than 200 certifications from vendors such as Microsoft, HP, EMC, Cisco, and VMware.

“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.”

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a top-ranking IT solutions provider for American businesses,” said Mark Jacobson, CEO. “In our 30 years of experience, we’ve found that companies want just that- to focus on what they know best and not worry about IT.”
