February 23, 2017

PORTLAND, Maine, February 21, 2017 –Winxnet, an IT outsourcing and consulting firm headquartered in Portland, Maine announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Winxnet to its 2017 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 offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.

“It’s a privilege to be recognized on CRN’s 2017 MSP 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for the second year in a row,” said CEO of Winxnet Chris Claduio. “Being recognized as a top MSP is a great privilege and is a testament to all of the hard work, technical expertise and overall dedication of our people. Winxnet has experienced rapid growth over the past few years and the demand for our Managed IT Services is stronger than ever.”

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 Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.

“Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN’s 2017 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”

The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
