SWC Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Technology Needs of Today’s Midmarket Organizations

SWC Technology Partners, an award winning provider of IT solutions to midmarket organizations, announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. The annual list recognizes North America’s top technology solution providers whose innovative approach to managed services has helped customers improve efficiencies, cut costs and spend more time working on strategic projects that will impact the business.

CRN’s inaugural MSP500 list is broken down into three groups: the MSP Elite 150, MSP Pioneer 250 and the MSP Hosting Service Provider. SWC ranked in the MSP Pioneer 250 category, which includes businesses whose managed services model is heavily weighted toward small- and midsize-business markets.

“The continued growth of SWC’s managed services practice is a direct result of the midmarket’s increasing investment in technology,” said Susie Cummings, Vice President of Managed Services at SWC. “There is a growing understanding of the strategic value of IT and its impact on the financial performance of today’s business. At SWC, our approach is unique in that we partner with our clients to develop the strategic plans and operational roadmaps that ensure 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.”

SWC provides comprehensive managed services and full outsourcing of IT management and support (both infrastructure and user desktop). This includes monitor and manage; patch and update; remediate and repair; service desk; and remote, onsite and cloud support. In 2012, SWC added enhanced managed services offerings to supplement internal IT teams, including Microsoft Exchange, Lync and SharePoint managed services, managed help desk and virtual database administration services. SWC also provides advisory services such as Virtual CIO/CTO, strategic planning, infrastructure roadmap development and disaster recovery and business continuity planning as part of their managed services offering.

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
