Company Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today’s IT Channel

Rockville, MD, February 18, 2014 – Optimal Networks, Inc., a managed IT services firm that provides technology support, a premier corporate cloud solution,  and business-focused strategic IT consulting to clients throughout the DC Metro area, today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.

In today’s world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.

This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.

For more than two decades, Optimal has led the way in service offering innovation. The company was one of the first to offer managed services and to fine-tune a secure, private hosted cloud desktops environment for clients. Optimal prioritizes using technology as a strategic tool to help businesses meet their goals.

“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”

“Optimal’s team is honored to receive this recognition,” said Heinan Landa, CEO of Optimal Networks. “To be highlighted for the quality of one of our most comprehensive service categories indicates that we are doing what we set out to do—help SMBs make business sense of technology while providing premium client service.”
