Konica Minolta receives multiple awards from CRN
April 28, 2021
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc., 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 Programme Guide.
“All Covered is honoured 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. Solution providers that have earned these high honours, enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support, are then selected from a pool of online applicants as well as from The Channel Company’s solution provider database.
The MSP 500 list, released annually, recognises 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, recognising companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognising large, data centre-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognising 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 Programme Guide provides a list of the most distinguished partner programmes from leading technology companies that provide products and services through the IT Channel. Given the importance of IT vendor channel programmes, each year CRN develops its Partner Programme Guide to provide the channel community with a detailed look at the partner programmes offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies and distributors. Vendors are scored based on investments in programme 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 Programme 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.”
