(Monroe, LA) February 19, 2024 — NetTech has announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named NetTech to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2024.

The MSP 500 list compiled by CRN serves as a comprehensive guide to identifying and recognizing the top Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in North America. MSPs play a crucial role in supporting businesses by offering managed services that enhance efficiency, simplify IT solutions, and optimize return on investment.

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 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- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

The MSP 500 list aims to showcase and celebrate MSPs that are driving growth and innovation in the industry. These service providers not only enable businesses to harness complex technologies but also contribute to maintaining a strong focus on core business goals without stretching financial resources. By categorizing MSPs based on their business models and areas of expertise, the list helps end-users find the right partners to meet their specific needs and challenges in the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

NetTech has been awarded the 2024 Pioneer 250 award for its outstanding business model and success in offering managed IT services to the SMB market. Their methodology revolves around treating technology as an investment and driver of business success rather than a cost center, which has proven to be effective in helping organizations migrate their critical information systems to the cloud and properly protecting those systems. By engaging in these discussions, NetTech’s clients have been able to successfully leverage technology to increase business efficiency and achieve their business goals.

Jennifer Follett, VP of US Content and executive Editor CRN, The Channel Company, emphasized the significance of managed services for businesses at various scales, stating, “Managed services provide a route for businesses of all sizes to maintain efficiency and adaptability throughout their growth journey. The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market, enabling their clients to achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets. This allows businesses to allocate resources strategically, concentrating on mission-critical tasks that drive future success.”

“Our organization has always taken a proactive approach towards addressing the increasing needs of our clients in response to the constantly changing business and technology environment,” said Andy Martin, president of NetTech. “Over the past few years, we’ve shifted our focus to meet the significant demand for advanced cloud computing and security needs of our clients. This narrowed focus emphasizes the importance for businesses to have a long-term technology partner rather than just another IT vendor. Leveraging over 400 years of combined technology experience, we advise our clients on the right overall technology strategy tailored to their unique business goals. This long-term partnership enables NetTech to deeply understand our clients’ businesses, allowing us to guide them on where to invest their technology dollars for maximum return.”
