CRN Names Merit Technologies on its 2022 MSP 500 List

Greenville, SC, February 14, 2022 – Merit Technologies announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Merit 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 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.

CEO of Merit Technologies’ Response

“We are honored to be recognized on CRN’s Managed Services Provider 500,” says Abe Varughese, CEO of Merit Technologies. “At Merit Technologies we are committed to quality and excellence and we don’t just strive to be good, we endeavor to be brilliant. Our mission is building customer relationships and making a positive impact that transcends technology and improves the lives of people around the world. The strategic partnerships we’ve made have allowed us to meet the growing and evolving needs in the IT and cybersecurity landscape, and have also given us the ability to serve our existing clients and penetrate new markets.”

CEO of The Channel Company

“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.”

The IT market is constantly in a state of flux, and more and more companies are looking for that trusted partner as their personal “in-house” IT business unit. With 96% customer retention rate, and a commitment to service, we can boast that we exceed expectations.
