LansingMichigan June 13, 2020  Application Specialist Kompany (ASK), announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company has named ASK to its 2020 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. 

This popular list identifies North American solution providers that deliver operational efficiencies, IT system improvements, and a higher rate of return on investments for their customers. These accomplished MSPs work tirelessly to guide their customers and create solutions for complex IT issues.  

This annual list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250 who are focused primarily on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, large data center-focused on- and off-premises; and the Managed Security 100 made up of off-premises-focused, cloud-based IT security services. 

ASK developed their Technology Alignment Process (TAP) over 27 years of working with businesses of all sizes. The TAP process drives measurable ROI by starting with the understanding of client’s needs and business strategy. That understanding leads to a process of road mapping, budgeting, implementation, and ROI measurement. 

Taken as a whole, the TAP process ensures that technology is being used to increase efficiency, collaboration, and growth.  

“MSPs are the critical bridge for customers looking to assess, implement and migrate their IT and cloud solutions to drive efficiencies, lower costs and secure your environment,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “On behalf of our team at The Channel Company, I want to congratulate the accomplished companies on CRN’s 2020 MSP 500 list and thank them for their commitment to finding innovative solutions that move the IT channel forward.” 

 “Technology has no intrinsic value on its own for a business,” said Mike Maddox, CEO of ASK.Its value is derived through its ability to help drive the business forward by delivering efficiency, reducing waste, and ultimately increasing profits.” 

The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2020 issue of CRN and online at
