Mainline Information Systems Named to Managed Service Provider 500 List by CRN

Mainline Recognized for Exemplary Approach to Delivery of Managed IT Services

Tallahassee, FL, February 17, 2015 – Mainline, the technology partner for business results, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage.

In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.

This year, CRN’s industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.

Mainline recommends, designs, and supports IT solutions that help businesses increase their effectiveness. With more than 500 professionals around the country, and numerous certified architects across various specialties, Mainline assists our customers with their most urgent and highly visible IT initiatives. Mainline has been recognized by the International Enterprise Architecture Institute (iEAi), a neutral IT consortium focused on advancing the enterprise architecture discipline. The company has the largest number of iEAi accredited IT solution architects of any solution provider in the United States.

“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”

“We are proud to have been recognized by CRN as an industry leader for the past several years. We strive to make this distinguished list each year by continuing to be a trusted IT consultant and partner to our customers,” said John McCarthy, Mainline’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Our solutions experts impart a superior level of customer service and are abreast of the latest and greatest technology offerings that will offer the best results for our customers. We are honored to be part of the MSP Elite 150.”

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
