Leading Minneapolis, St. Paul Managed Services Provider Included on MSP 500 for the Third year in a row

Minneapolis, MN, March 25, 2015 – Agosto, a Google Premier Partner and cloud product development company, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage.

This year, CRN’s industryfocused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Pioneers geared toward the small and midsize business market.

“Being included again on the list of top managed services providers is an honor for Agosto,” said Aric Bandy, Agosto president. “As we pivot toward a future as a cloud product development and enterprise cloud services company, we will not lose sight of our long history of pioneering IT services.”

Coverage of the MSP 500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online atwww.CRN.com
