Blue Layer Recognized on CRN’s 2022 MSP 500 List

Created at March 19, 2022

CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Blue Layer to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) list in the Pioneering 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.

“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.”

2022 marks the third year in a row that Blue Layer has been recognized on the MSP 500. Our spot in the Pioneering 250 category recognizes companies with business models weighted toward managed services and primarily focused on the SMB market and confirms our ability to deliver leading managed services worthy of industry recognition.

“We are thrilled and honored to be a part of CRN’s Pioneering 250 list for the third year in a row,” said Blue Layer COO Michael Strong. “Industry recognition is one of the most shining indicators of our experience, superior performance, and an unrelenting dedication to providing customers with right-sized managed services they can count on around the clock. I’m proud of our team for this achievement and thankful for our customers’ lasting trust.”
