Blue Layer IT Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services 

Blue Layer IT announced today that CRN®, a brand of  The Channel Company, has named Blue Layer to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.


In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.

The list is divided into three categories: 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-premise, cloud-based security services.

“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company.

“Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”

Blue Layer is honored to be named to the Pioneer 250 List by The Channel Company and CRN. We strive to provide our clients with most trustworthy and right-sized IT. It is truly our pleasure to serve West Texas, we are very proud to represent the South Plains. With the loyalty of our clients and the team we assembled, we strongly believe that Blue Layer is the best in the business.

“At Blue Layer, our focus is to be a responsible and right-sized consulting provider for our clients, and being named to CRN Pioneer 250 is an honor for our company and would not be possible without the trust our clients have in our abilities, and the hard-work and diligent customer service provided by our team every single day.” – Michael Strong, COO

The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at
