EXETER, RI – February 20, 2019  – Carousel Industries announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has once again named Carousel to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with innovative approaches to managed services. These services help customers improve operational efficiencies, maximize return on IT investments, and continuously help them navigate the complexities of IT solutions.

“Carousel Industries is once again thrilled to be recognized by CRN as a member of the Elite 150 category of Managed Services Providers,” said Jeff Gardner, CEO, Carousel Industries. “Our award-winning, ITIL-based managed services have helped thousands of enterprise clients move IT from a support function to a strategic partner. By offering this service to clients, we continue our mission in making Carousel easier to do business with—a single source to propel clients’ digital transformation goals and achieve their desired business outcomes.”

Managed service providers are integral to the success of businesses everywhere. They empower companies to implement and operate complex technologies while staying within their budgets and keep focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list identifies the most groundbreaking managed service organizations, with advanced solutions that have endless potential for growth.

This annual 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-premises, cloud-based security services.

“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,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on CRN’s 2019 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.”
