ClearObject Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

IoT Systems Innovator Named to CRN’s 2018 Managed Service Provider 500 List and Recognized as North American Solution Provider with Cutting-Edge Approach to Delivering Managed Services

ClearObject, an Internet of Things (loT) Systems Innovator, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ClearObject to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.

In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.

The list is divided into three categories: 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.

ClearObject has adapted to an evolving marketplace with a notable penchant for bringing key technologies to their clients before they become mainstream. ClearObject bridges the gap between innovative ideas and the constraints of push button technologies, designing custom solutions on the platform that best fits its customers with the tools that unlock the full potential of their data.

“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”

“ClearObject brings the IoT stories of our customers to life every day and our success is due in part to our collaboration with an extensive network of IT channel partners,” said John McDonald, CEO of ClearObject. “We are honored to be included on the Pioneer 250 of CRN’s 2018 Managed Service Provider list and to continue providing our customers with reliable, cutting-edge approaches to their managed service needs.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at
