Waltham, Mass. February 22, 2022 NWN Carousel, the leading integrated cloud communications service provider, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150  category for 2022. Since the introduction of CRN’s MSP 500 list in 2014, NWN and Carousel (acquired in 2021) have been recognized 17 times, more than any other service provider in New England.

CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.

With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

As a cloud communications service provider, NWN Carousel is focused on transforming the hybrid workforce with secure, scalable cloud solutions for companies, enterprises and state and federal governments. The company provides integrated cloud communications, security, contact center, infrastructure, device management and connectivity – all powered by our proprietary Experience Management Platform that helps customers thrive in a work-from-everywhere hybrid model.

“We are honored to be selected for this award by CRN and included with so many innovative companies working to drive business outcomes and provide superior customer and employee experiences,” said Jim Sullivan, CEO of NWN Carousel.  “When the pandemic hit two years ago our unified communications, infrastructure and managed services became critical to supporting organizations through a lengthy and uncertain time. Our cloud communications services have enabled organizations and government agencies to evolve by empowering their remote workers and transforming their work experience.”

“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
