Elite 150 designation affirms company’s managed services leadership position

SWC Technology Partners, a Chicago area provider of full-service IT solutions to mid-market organizations, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named SWC Technology Partners to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 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.

For the last 10 years, SWC’s dedicated team of managed services professionals have been providing clients with strategic and tactical solutions to recommend, implement, and support the technologies required to efficiently manage growing businesses.

“This award is further indication that our clients are seeing the value in our solutions and reaping the rewards of our managed services approach,” said Susie Cummings, Senior Vice President, Managed Services & Infrastructure at SWC.

Through Managed Services, we our help clients shift their focus from being reactive to strategic which has resulted in larger return on their IT investment.  This coupled with our 24x7x365 management and support services has moved IT closer to the business and created a foundation for future growth and opportunity.

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.

“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.”
