BREA, Calif. and BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WAMS, Inc., premier provider of technology solutions and IT support services to law firms and businesses since 1974 and MSP partner of Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, has been designated as the top MSP in the legal vertical on the MSPmentor 501. This is WAMS’s third consecutive year making the MSPmentor 501 and first time being No. 1 in the legal vertical.

“We are so honored to be included on this prestigious list again,” said Kevin Haight, General Manager at WAMS. “Being ranked No. 1 in the legal vertical as a Managed Service Provider is a testament to our ongoing commitment to our clients and success in the industry. We custom-tailor our service offerings to the legal industry specifically. We have grown to know our clients’ operations over the years and understand what our clients need to be successful in their business.”
WAMS developed its custom hosted solution, WAMS Cloud Connect, in 2012 due to the demand for law firms to meet their business objectives. The company saw the need to provide attorneys with the ability to access their business network, applications and data from any Internet connected device. Lawyers are very mobile and frequently need to have ready access to their clients’ data in order to provide legal services.
Backed by Continuum’s industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC), Continuity247 proactively monitors and verifies backups, provides recovery and testing support, troubleshoots and ensures backups continuously run 24x7x365 for small and medium sized business clients. Having the NOC team of more than 650 technicians behind WAMS is one of the largest benefits for the MSP.

WAMS also utilizes Continuum’s Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform that offers proactive problem resolution supported by the Continuum’s NOC and Help Desk, resolving thousands of alerts, 24x7x365. MSPs can realize greater margins and achieve scalable growth through strategic outsourcing to Continuum, offsetting of labor costs and minimizing of service delivery expenses.
