Third consecutive year as top managed services provider in North America; sixth time in the last decade
March 4, 2021 Houston, TX. – Computex Technology Solutions (“Computex”), an American Virtual Cloud Technologies Inc. company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Computex, a leading IT solutions and managed service provider, to the Elite 150 category in its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. Released annually, the list recognizes the leading North American solution providers that have demonstrated innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services. Their services help end users improve operational efficiencies and navigate the ongoing complexities of IT solutions, while maximizing their return on IT investments.
MSPs are an integral part of IT departments. They empower organizations to focus on their core business by leveraging complex technologies and augmenting their IT resources, without straining their budgets. CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list identifies the MSPs that set themselves apart by offering best-of-breed offerings that enable companies to achieve their core objectives.
As a premier and leading technology solutions provider, Computex has a full suite of managed cloud service offerings and holds hundreds of IT industry certifications, including four Cisco Master specializations, a Master Nutanix partner designation, and a Platinum HPE partnership. Its white-glove service, vendor partnerships and breadth of its offerings enables Computex to provide customers technology solutions designed to best fit their needs. Newly acquired by AVCtechnologies, Computex manages over 400,000 devices globally.
“Businesses saw an increase in security threats and the unexpected shift to a remote workforce in 2020, which created a higher dependency on full-stack security-as-a-service providers. This past year has provided Computex with an opportunity to demonstrate the commitment and dedication to our customers to transform their business through technology during this time,” said Faisal Bhutto, Co-President at Computex. “We are thrilled to be recognized by CRN as a top managed service provider for the sixth time.”
The MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
“Effective MSPs enable companies to focus on their core objectives while improving the quality and reliability of their cloud computing capabilities,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list deserve recognition for their innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services, and the ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems to maximize return on investments.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
