Maumee, OH, February 18, 2020 – Aktion Associates, Inc., national software reseller and IT infrastructure provider focused on the Construction, Distribution and Manufacturing industries, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Aktion Associates to its 2020 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This list identifies North American solution providers that deliver operational efficiencies, IT system improvements, and a higher rate of return on investments for their customers.
This annual list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250 who are focused primarily on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, large data center-focused on- and off-premises; and the Managed Security 100 made up of off-premises-focused, cloud-based IT security services.
Aktion was selected for the MSP500 list as a result of its steady growth and innovative approach to delivering managed services to companies in the Construction, Distribution and Manufacturing industries.
“We’re known for being one of the largest VARs in the United States and producing successful ERP go lives. However, our fastest growing practice is our cloud hosting and managed services,” said Aktion CEO Scott Irwin. “We have two, company-owned data centers and our Network Operations Center (NOC) monitors and supports customers in real-time. Customers trust Aktion to understand their business and provide next generation IT solutions, like managed services,” he added.
“MSPs are the critical bridge for customers looking to assess, implement and migrate their IT and cloud solutions to drive efficiencies, lower costs and secure your environment,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “On behalf of our team at The Channel Company, I want to congratulate the accomplished companies on CRN’s 2020 MSP 500 list and thank them for their commitment to finding innovative solutions that move the IT channel forward.”
