Acumen IT Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

Greenville, South Carolina, February, 27, 2018 – Acumen IT, one of the top IT companies in the southeast, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Acumen IT 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.

Acumen IT’s recognition by CRN is sourced in their revolutionary business breakdown, offering Managed Services for all companies, regardless of their IT staffing situation. Acumen IT provides everything from full staffing, assistance to small IT departments, and delivering cutting edge technology and support for full scale IT departments

“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.”

David Pence, CEO of Acumen IT said, “This is a great honor. We at Acumen IT work hard to provide our Managed Services customers with the best possible IT solutions and services. To be recognized for that makes not only myself, but everyone here at Acumen IT proud to be a trusted name in Managed Services.”
