Posted on Mar 08, 2016 by Broadview Networks
RYE BROOK, NY — Broadview Networks, a leading provider of cloud-based business communications and information technology services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has placed Broadview on the Elite 150 of CRN’s 2016 Managed Service Provider 500 (MSP500) list. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services.
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 models. CRN’s MSP500 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 MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
Broadview was recognized for their revolutionary MyOfficeSuite portal that centralizes all communications and hosted services into a single user-friendly website that can be accessed from anywhere on any device. MyOfficeSuite is the heart of Broadview’s hosted Unified Communications (UC) system, which uses unique technology to provide a 100% cloud-based user-centric solution that is simultaneously powerful and easy for the end-user to use and leverage. MSPs and other technology providers can use the system to help organizations make changes, add users and improve communications between employees and with clients.
“The role of the technology provider is rapidly becoming more complex as the adoption of cloud services accelerates,” said Brian Crotty, Broadview’s Chief Operating Officer. “MyOfficeSuite allows anyone (consultants, administrators and employee end users) to access and use the entire unified communications system to its full advantage to improve flexibility and productivity.”
“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
