Nashville, Tenn. – (Feb. 17, 2015) – Advanced Network Solutions (ANS) today announced it has been named to CRN’s 2015 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.

“ANS is focused on providing our clients trusted best-in-class service. We are thankful for this recognition that further demonstrates our commitment to efficiently servicing small and medium size companies,” said Richard Pinson, CEO at ANS.

In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.

“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”

The MSP500 is featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN, and online at
