SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 4, 2018--Network Data Systems announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named NDS to its 2017 Tech Elite 250 list. Additionally, NDS was recognized last month in the Elite 150 category of the MSP 500 list.

The Tech Elite 250 list honors an exclusive group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size. The MSP Elite 150, recognizes large, data center focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services. Both awards recognize solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services.

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.

“Network Data Systems is proud to be named to the Channel Companies’ MSP Elite 150 list for 2017,” said Wayne Dumas, VP of Managed Services. “Again in 2017, our team was able to exceed our growth plan, expand our service portfolio while maintaining our high employee and customer Net Promoter Scores (NPS). Employee and customer satisfaction is the foundation of everything we do at NDS and we are proud to be recognized by our employees, customers and The Channel Company for services we provide to our managed service clients. We look forward to continuing to grow as the industry and needs of the customers change in the future.”

Gary McGuire, Sr. Director of Delivery, said, “We are definitely seeing the market and our clients moving to a Service-based model for their IT services. Clients are moving IT budgets from CAPX to OPX which provides them more consistent cash flow. By leveraging MSP’s, clients can utilize complex IT services without having to maintain a complex infrastructure and highly trained IT workforce.”

“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.”
