Third-Annual List Honors Leading MSPs for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud & More
ChannelE2E, published by After Nines Inc., has named Ricoh USA, Inc. to the Top 250 Public Cloud MSPs list for 2020.
The list and research identify and honor the top managed IT service providers (MSPs) that support customers on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and more.
The rankings are based on ChannelE2E's 2020 readership survey combined with the digital media site's global editorial coverage of managed cloud services. The third-annual list has expanded from 2019 (200 honorees) and 2018 (100 honorees) amid ChannelE2E's continued readership growth, and the growing need for cloud-focused MSPs.
"As an information management and digital services company, our focus is to solve customers' problems. And in today's climate, they're looking for increased agility and flexibility resulting from their technology investments," said Bob Lamendola, Vice President, Infrastructure and Engineering Services, Ricoh USA, Inc. "This recognition is a testament to our ability to address those needs with our portfolio of cloud-based services and our commitment to helping their businesses thrive so they can focus on moving forward."
"After Nines Inc. and ChannelE2E congratulate Ricoh on this year's honor," said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. "Businesses worldwide require MSPs like Ricoh to ensure safe, successful and secure cloud migrations backed by ongoing support."
