Oak Brook, IL, February 16, 2016 – Controle announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Controle to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the 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.
Controle was included in the list due to their unique Bridge the Gap™ Managed Service offering which helps both Corporate Legal and IT departments deal with eDiscovery challenges. Controle has seen significant growth in this managed service part of their business over the past 5 years.
“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.”
“Corporations don’t want to have deal with all the intricacies of eDiscovery and would prefer to leverage a Managed Service provider who will give them great service and be a part of their team. That is what we provide at Controle.”
“Controle is excited to be included in the Managed Service Provider 500 list for 2016. Our Bridge the Gap™ service has been leveraged by hundreds of customers and continues to be a huge growth area for our company. Corporate IT and Legal departments really struggle with cross department communication and the associated tasks with eDiscovery” said Kevin Barnicle, CEO of Controle. “Our growth in this area of our business is a direct reflection of the value we have brought our customers. Corporations don’t want to have deal with all the intricacies of eDiscovery and would prefer to leverage a Managed Service provider who will give them great service and be a part of their team. That is what we provide at Controle”.
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
