Konica Minolta, along with its IT Services Division, All Covered, announced recent recognition from CRN, a brand of The Channel Company. The company was listed among the CRN Tech Elite 250, as an Elite 150 member of the CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list, as well as part of the CRN Partner Program Guide.
“All Covered is honored by the continual support and recognition we receive from CRN,” said Todd Croteau, president, All Covered. “Our teams work extremely hard to help our company distinguish itself among our many competitors, and these accolades help further define our place in the market as a leading MSP.”
The annual Tech Elite 250 list features IT solution providers of all sizes in North America that have earned cutting-edge technical certifications from leading technology suppliers.
Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors distinguish the most client-driven technical certifications in the North American IT channel.
The MSP 500 list, released annually, recognizes the leading North American solution providers that have demonstrated innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services. The 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.
“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.”
CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide provides a conclusive list of the most distinguished partner programs from leading technology companies that provide products and services through the IT Channel. Given the importance of IT vendor channel programs, each year CRN develops its Partner Program Guide to provide the channel community with a detailed look at the partner programs offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies and distributors. Vendors are scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
“We are pleased to once again be included in CRN’s Partner Program Guide as part of this distinguished group of companies supporting the IT channel,” said Laura Blackmer, senior vice president, Dealer Sales, Konica Minolta. “Our partner network is built on strong alliances within the industry, and we are committed to the success of each and every one of them.”
