COOKEVILLE – EpiOn, a Tennessee IT company, has been selected as one of the technology industry’s top-performing providers of managed services by the editors of Channel Futures. EpiOn’s ranking of 77th worldwide also placed them as the #1 MSP in the entire state of Tennessee.
For the past 15 years, MSPs from around the globe have submitted applications to be included on this prestigious and definitive listing. The Channel Futures MSP 501 survey examines organizational performance based on a wide array of metrics and stringent qualifications. Managed services providers that qualify for the list must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures.
Don Viar, managing partner of EpiOn, was thrilled to accept this award on behalf of his team.
“We have a tremendous team that has diligently served our clients for over 20 years” said Viar. “We’re not satisfied with the status quo for ourselves or our customers. This award is gratifying because it is a sign that we’re in the upper echelon of IT companies not only locally, but worldwide.”
Viar added, “Our clients are small to mid-sized enterprises who make things, fix things, sell things, educate, govern, care for people, save souls and serve others to better their communities. Our goal is to understand and empower our clients’ businesses by helping them truly leverage their technology investment to lower operating costs, reduce risk and drive their own unique missions. This award is one we are very proud of and thankful for, because it gives our customers confidence that they are partnering with a world-class company from right here at home.”
This year’s MSP 501 list attracted a record number of applicants and was one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. Winners are being recognized on the Channel Futures website and will be honored at a special ceremony at the MSP Summit held Nov. 1-2 in Las Vegas as part of the Channel Partners Conf. & Expo.
Since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking into a vibrant group of innovators focused on high levels of customer satisfaction at small, medium and large organizations in public and private sectors. Today, many of their services and technology offerings focus on growing customer needs in the areas of cloud, security, collaboration and support of hybrid work forces.
“The 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners are the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today. They stand head and shoulders above the competition,” said Robert DeMarzo, Vice President of Content for the Channel Futures and Channel Partners Conference & Expo division of Informa Tech Channels. “Coordinated by Channel Futures MSP 501 editor Allison Francis, this year’s list was clearly one of the best ever on record.”
“Vendors that are aligned with the Channel Futures MSP 501 are driving a new wave of innovation in the industry. Through their partnerships they are demonstrating a commitment to moving the MSP and entire channel forward,” said Kelly Danziger, General Manager of Informa Tech Channels. “We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2021 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of the managed services sector.”
