P R E S S R E L E A S E
Mechanicsburg, PA, February 14, 2022 — Appalachia Technologies announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Appalachia Technologies to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2022. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.
With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.
The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies focused on managed services for the SMB market under 500 employees; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
A differentiator from other MSPs, Appalachia is a services-only company with roots in advanced network design and implementation, and a vendor-neutral approach. This provides clients with the backing of a highly certified engineering team with vast experience across many technology stacks to support whatever an organization has in place. Additionally, as a SOC 2 Type II audited company, Appalachia Technologies delivers trust-based services to their clients.
Appalachia Technologies provides services to businesses of all sizes, from SMB to enterprise.
“With a customizable offering, we work with organizations to select the level of service needed based on the device type and criticality,” shared Terri Bendl, Director of Sale & Marketing. “We can be an organization’s entire IT team, or we can work with an organization’s internal IT Staff to co-manage the environment, freeing them up to work on the more strategic business technology initiatives.”
“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
“We’re incredibly honored to be considered a Pioneer 250 company. It’s yet another testament to all the hard work and care our teams consistently provide to our clients on a daily basis,” says Appalachia’s President, Mike Williams.
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
