San Jose, Calif., Feb. 14, 2022 — ZAG Technical Services (ZAG), an award-winning IT consulting firm, managed services, and IT security provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ZAG to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2022. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping clients increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.
With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage advanced technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.
The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 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- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
The recognition reflects ZAG’s client-driven approach to managed services, forming true partnerships that are driven by collaboration. ZAG views technology as a competitive advantage for companies, providing more streamlined processes. Through its managed services, ZAG frees up internal IT teams and provides them with the ability to focus more fully on strategic initiatives that help the company grow.
“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration, and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
“There’s a significant need in our technology-driven world for infrastructure that is built on a solid foundation,” said Greg Gatzke, President, ZAG. “ZAG’s managed services ensures that client organizations first and foremost have the foundation in place on which to innovate and use technology as a competitive advantage. This recognition goes a long way to solidify our approach and ensure that we continue to be a client-first organization. We’re honored to be on this list.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
