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

Brea, CA, February 19, 2014 – WAMS, Inc., the premier provider of IT support and solutions since 1974, 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 heavily weighted toward managed services 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.

The WAMS managed IT services offering, ManagedCARE, takes complete ownership of the technology you choose to have managed for one monthly price. Because managed IT service packages are all inclusive, you know your costs in advance and there are no surprises. ManagedCARE also allows WAMS to take a proactive approach to managing your IT. Instead of reacting to issues, WAMS is able to be alerted and fix the problem before users experience any downtime.

“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.”

“We are very proud to be on this list of prestigious and exemplary managed service providers,” said Kevin Haight, General Manager, WAMS, Inc. “We continue to grow year after year thanks to our loyal clients and our team’s commitment to providing the best possible IT services out there. We look forward to years of continuing to provide our clients with IT solutions to help them grow their own businesses.”

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com,
