Rochester, New York, August 31, 2020 – SMP is excited to announce that for the sixth time, CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named SMP to its Solution Provider 500 list, coming in at number 244 for 2020 (up 16 spots from previous placement). The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s annual ranking of the largest technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue.
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the global economy and the IT industry. For the channel, it’s no longer business as usual but the companies on this year’s CRN Solution Provider 500 list are meeting the new challenges head-on.
“2020 certainly has been a unique year, and we couldn’t be more pleased to achieve this ranking for a sixth time. SMP sprang into action at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We were already enabled to work remotely so our transition to full time work from home was seamless. We helped many clients achieve the same. Our investments in Hybrid and Mulitcloud has proven to be the right solutions at the right time. ” comments Eric Rorapaugh, President and founder of SMP.
“CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list spotlights the North American IT channel partner organizations that have earned the highest revenue over the past year, providing a valuable resource to vendors looking for top solution providers to partner with,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We extend our sincerest congratulations to each of these top-performing solution providers and look forward to their future pursuits and successes.”
In April 2020, SMP was named to the CRN TECH ELITE 250 list, which acknowledges the top tier of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of technical certifications for leading technology suppliers.
The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s predominant channel partner award list, serving as the industry standard for recognition of the most successful solution provider companies in the channel since 1995.
