Managed Service Providers Supported with Industry-Leading Experience, Support and Tools
RYE BROOK, N.Y. –Broadview Networks®, a leader in cloud-based unified communications (UC) and information technology services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Broadview to its 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite150 category for the second consecutive year. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers who offer cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. These offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s complex business environments, MSPs play an increasingly key role in helping organizations leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. Without any expensive labor or upfront hardware costs, Broadview’s 100 percent cloud-based user-centric solution OfficeSuite UC© is both powerful and easy for the end user to deploy. It offers the flexibility, security and efficiency businesses need to improve communications and collaboration between employees and with clients. MSPs save time and can easily build, install, activate and manage all their clients using OfficeSuite UC© through Broadview’s MyOfficeSuite Agent. In addition, MSPs can easily monitor the pulse of their needs and trouble areas to maximize revenue and renewal opportunities to earn more.
“We are proud to be named an elite service provider by CRN and recognized for our commitment to providing unmatched cloud-based UC solutions for our customers,” said Michael K. Robinson, Broadview’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to anticipate the growing needs and business challenges faced by our customers. We also take pride in helping consultants, administrators and employee end users achieve their goals with our complete unified communications solution, OfficeSuite UC, which is at the heart of everything we do.”
CRN’s MSP500 list recognizes the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations, and the MSP Elite150 recognizes large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services. Broadview was recognized for its off-premise managed services portfolio spanning the administration and management of security, storage, backup, voice over internet protocol (VoIP), network operations center (NOC), remote monitoring, telco services and co-location.
“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 helping them get the most out of their IT investments.”
