Cary, North Carolina, February 16, 2021 – 5S Technologies, a leading IT solutions and services provider serving the Carolinas, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named 5S to its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Pioneer 250 category. The list, released annually, recognizes the leading North American solution providers that have demonstrated innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services. These services help end users improve operational efficiencies and navigate the ongoing complexities of IT solutions, while maximizing their return on IT investments.

With cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services, MSPs have become an integral part of the success of businesses worldwide. They help empower organizations to leverage complex technologies, keeping a strict focus on their core business without straining their budgets. CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list identifies the market’s key managed services players who are setting themselves apart with best-of-breed solutions that provide the business outcomes customers need.

The 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

5S Technologies is experiencing record growth in their managed services practice fueled by their ability to leverage innovative technologies to deliver outstanding results for their clients. In their co-managed IT model, the 5S engineering team becomes an extension of the internal IT teams of their clients allowing them to focus on their core business.

“Effective MSPs enable companies to focus on their core objectives while improving the quality and reliability of their cloud computing capabilities,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list deserve recognition for their innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services, and the ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems to maximize return on investments.”

“We are truly honored to be named to CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 List,” said Les Roach, Director of Sales and Marketing at 5S Technologies. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work of the entire 5S team in building a robust managed services practice and our unwavering commitment to provide the highest level of customer satisfaction for our clients.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at
