MCPc Named to CRN's Managed Service Provider Elite 150 List

MCPc, National Technology Consultant and Integrator, Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today's IT Channel

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - February 18, 2014) - MCPc, a leading technology integrator and consultancy, today announced it has been named to CRN's Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.

In today's world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.

This year, CRN's MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.

MCPc Managed Services focuses on the critical daily tasks essential to maintaining their clients' system integrity, and freeing clients' resources to focus on their core business needs. This includes a state-of-the-art Operations Service Center, on-call and monitoring 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Seasoned experts with all major manufacturer certifications serve MCPc's clients to reduce risk and increase efficiency.

"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."

"We are thrilled to receive this honor from CRN. Being counted among this group of elite companies is meaningful," said Jed Ayres, chief marketing officer for MCPc. "After winning the CRN Business Transformation Elite Award in 2013, we are enthused and encouraged by this recognition by the industry's leader in journalism."

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