(www.agosto.com), one of the nation oldest and fastest-growing Google Apps and cloud services consulting firms, today announced Everything Channel has named the company to the first-ever 2011 CRN Next-Gen 250 list. The CRN Next-Gen 250 is an annual listing of innovative and nimble business and technology integrators, solution providers, and resellers in North America offering solutions and services in cloud computing, mobility, unified communications, virtualization, and other emerging technologies.
There are thousands of companies in the marketplace that offer services that could qualify them to be on the CRN Next-Gen 250 list. To narrow down the field and determine which of these will earn a place on the list, CRN’s editorial team conducted industry research, monitored editorial coverage, and gathered vendor feedback.
Commenting on Agosto’s placement on the list, Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director, Everything Channel said, “In today’s competitive environment, solution providers have to do more than just talk about innovation. The ability to quickly implement new processes, models, and technologies is what drives margins and the bottom line. Agosto has demonstrated such innovation and capabilities, and we congratulate them on their successful business.
"We've worked hard on making sure we always stay ahead of the curve," said Aric Bandy, Agosto CEO.
"Our clients depend on us to keep track of what’s going on with technology and to advise them when something can help them save money without big operational disruptions."
