Long View MITS

Denver, CO – August 23, 2010 – Long View Systems, a leading provider of IT Consulting, Cloud Services and Outsourcing Solutions, today announced that they have been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine as one of the Most Innovative MSPs (Managed Service Providers). This first annual list highlights companies that have found success offering managed solutions to customers, helping them be more efficient and reduce costs. CRN felt it was important to focus on these MSPs as reports indicate that the vast majority of small and medium-sized businesses in the United States do not currently have a managed solution, but many are exploring the technology to help drive innovation within their organizations.

Long View Systems was chosen to be on this list for standing out in what is becoming an incredibly competitive market. Long View continues to lead the industry with 10+ years of managed services success through constant innovation and service delivery excellence. A solid financial and sustainable business model sees Long View managed services continuing to experience double-digit growth in any economic climate and in all key business sectors. Long View Systems has demonstrated the ability to deliver sophisticated business technology solutions and meet stringent client requirements, reflecting a depth of capabilities across a spectrum of practices and industry segments. Earlier this year, Long View was ranked #2 as one of the world’s most influential MSPs as listed on the MSPmentor 100.

“VARs are beginning to find success in offering managed solutions to their customers. We are recognizing the most innovative MSPs who are ahead of the curve and will help drive these types of services to small and midsize companies. This is a first step toward moving customers toward a recurring bill for services, a strategy that sets them up nicely for more advanced cloud offerings,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

“We are extremely excited to be recognized by CRN Magazine. This recognition is an affirmation of our commitment to provide exceptional support and service to our clients,” said Kevin Crowe, Director of Long View’s Managed IT Services North America. “We’re tremendously proud of everyone on our Managed Services team for their tireless efforts in helping Long View’s clients globally improve their business productivity through innovative technical and operational solutions.”

A special feature of the Top MSPs is in the August issue of CRN Magazine and expanded coverage will be featured online at www.crn.com.
