En Pointe Technologies Places in Elite 150 of CRN Managed Service Provider 500 List

Company Recognized for Exemplary Approach to Delivery of Managed IT Services


LOS ANGELES, CA - March 3, 2015 - En Pointe Technologies, one of the largest Microsoft Licensing Solution Providers (LSPs) and systems integrators, today announced that it has earned recognition on The Channel Company's 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the top-ranking MSP Elite 150. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage.

In today's world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming. To help facilitate companies' selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.

This year, CRN's industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.

En Pointe, a national IT solutions provider, enables customers with the unique opportunity to leverage a hybrid solution provider offering the economy of scale advantage of a national reseller, and the flexibility of a highly specialized engineering firm. En Pointe's integrated account management and engineering approach ensures the company is driving holistic solutions to meet its customers' evolving business needs.

"The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success."

"En Pointe is pleased to be recognized by CRN as an elite managed services provider," said Bob Din, CEO, En Pointe Technologies. "Our strong relationships with top manufacturers and publishers like Cisco, Collab9, Dell, dinCloud, HP, Microsoft Cloud, Symantec, VMware, and others, combined with over twenty years' experience in the industry, allows us to deliver real value to our clients. Our complementary solutions and services, from the desktop to the data center, not only help simplify our customers' IT operations, but also meet their industries' ever evolving requirements."

Coverage of the MSP500 is featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
