iCorps Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

Boston, MA, February 16 2016 – iCorps Technologies, a full-service IT consulting and outsourcing firm (www.icorps.com), announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named iCorps 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.

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.

iCorps Technologies, a Northeast-based company, credits its methodic and thorough approach to each client’s IT environment for the company’s success as a leading MSP. As more businesses look to implement cloud services with their existing infrastructure, iCorps believes an MSP must remain flexible in its services while still delivering the best strategic IT direction for each client.

“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.”

“Being placed in the Elite 150 category is very exciting for us, and we thank CRN for their recognition,” said Michael Hadley, iCorps President and CEO. “Over the past year, we’ve focused on growing our cloud service offerings with Microsoft Azure, as well as our core Managed Services. We’re seeing more businesses embrace a cloud approach for their IT infrastructure, and looking to an experienced MSP to implement and manage their hybrid environments. We’re proud to say that iCorps is rising to the occasion.” 

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
