NetGain Named to Managed Service Provider 500 List by CRN

Company Recognized for Exemplary Approach to Delivery of Managed Services

Bellefontaine, Ohio, February 17, 2015 – NetGain Information Systems Company, 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 leading approach to managed services enables their clients to improve operational efficiencies, cut costs, get more value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve a greater competitive advantage.

In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The choices in technology procurement can be overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology solution providers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.

“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”

“NetGain was named to CRN’s MSP Pioneer 250, a list for businesses focused on providing managed services in the small and mid-size business markets; but clearly could have also been named to the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100 for delivering off-premise and cloud-based services via NetGain’s own data centers,” states President and Chief Operating Officer Kelly Jones.

NetGain provides a growing array of business continuity services that are “always on, always ready”, including hosted servers and co-location services, hosted internet, Cisco-based voice services, cloud back-up, and data center services; and via its subsidiary, Recovery Site Logistics, a Columbus-based firm, disaster recovery workspace and data center solutions.

When asked where NetGain’s pioneering spirit comes from, Jones is quick to name founder and CEO Michael Minnich. “Mike works tirelessly to expand our vision of providing metro-grade services to rural areas at affordable prices, with data centers and a fiber-optic network that we control” explains Jones. “This makes us unique among managed service providers, and provides real advantages to our clients.”
