Cary, NC, February 14, 2022 5S Technologies, a leading IT solutions and services provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named 5S 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 end users 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 intricate 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.

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.

“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.”

“We are truly honored to be named to CRN’s 2022 MSP 500 List,” said Mike Shook, CEO of 5S Technologies. “This marks our second straight year on this prestigious list and 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 2022 issue of CRN and online at
