Florence, SC, February 15, 2018 – HillSouth, iT Solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named HillSouth to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their 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 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. CRN’s MSP 500 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
HillSouth has worked diligently to transform its business model to meet the needs of its clients by consistently leading the charge to proactive IT services where others may offer reactive IT services. It is this mentality to resolve issues and avoid downtime that have allowed HillSouth to place itself in the ranks of the most innovative firms in the IT services industry.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“HillSouth aims to be synonymous with innovation on behalf of our clients and our partners. Recognition of being one of the innovators within our industry means that we are on the right track in our never ending quest to lead where other firms may follow. We are humbled and honored by the recognition of Pioneer 250 from our friends at CRN and desire to work tirelessly to drive innovative IT solutions for the benefit of our clients each and every day,” said HillSouth CEO, Robby Hill.
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
