MSP Peer Pressure: Executive Leadership Meet Up—Part 1

This session is designed to bring together executives from leading managed service providers who want to connect with peers to gain a better understanding of today’s challenges and opportunities. This session will provide “peer pressure” for attendees to do the right thing when it comes to their MSP business. Designed by two leading MSPs, this session will bring leaders together to discuss a wide range of issues from business model evolution to strategic partnerships, marketing and sales compensation and much more. The 30-minute session will be divided into three major topics each discussed for 10 minutes. Peer perspectives have emerged as one of the most important sources of information today for solution providers and customers. This session will allow attendees to compare notes in an open, friendly environment. Executives will share their thoughts and gain the perspectives and feedback from knowledgeable leaders. Stelios Valavanis and Sean Ferrel will kick off the session then open it up to a wider dialogue. Space will be limited to the first 25 executives who register.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][vc_button2 title="LEARN MORE" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thechannelco.com%2Fevents%2Fxch16%2Fspeakers||"][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

How an MSP Can Help Your Company Get Its Groove Back

By JD Sartain written on CIO.com
Managed service providers (MSPs) are rapidly becoming the gold standard for outsourcing the day-to-day management responsibilities and operations of corporations worldwide, so the IT staff can focus on R&D, new products and better customer service.
An MSP headquartered in London has been providing real-world managed services to its clients since 2001. Moneycorp is an independent foreign currency exchange broker in the U.K. that completes 2.4 million customer transactions and trades 11 billion pounds in foreign currencies a year. These two companies came together because one was experiencing real-world issues and the other could offer immediate solutions. Read more about their success using a blendedIT workforce here.

San Diego, CA, February 26, 2016 - Managed Solution, a highly honored and tenured managed services company and pioneer in managed, utility-based cloud computing, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their top-notch offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The 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-premise and off-premise services; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
Managed Solution was selected for MSP Pioneer 250 list because their solutions are customized specifically for each customer and focus on driving internal productivity, collaboration and culture – which provides valuable business outcomes.
“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
“We are currently building a channel partnership with many MSP’s and other vendors nationally to provide more of a group purchasing organization type look and feel for our customers,” said Sean Ferrel, chief executive officer, Managed Solution. As a part of the dynamic business community, we are a technology company that empowers business, investing in them like none other. We will continue to be committed to the success of our clients and we are excited to work with companies using today’s cutting edge technology to shape the business of tomorrow.
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
