February 14, 2022 — Paducah, Kentucky — Systems Solutions announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Systems Solutions to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2022. 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.

Systems Solutions has maintained well-established, long-term relationships with many clients across Western Kentucky and the surrounding region for over 35 years. Our company vision involves creating a great workplace environment that seeks to establish long-term partnerships with clients, built upon honesty, integrity, and technological expertise by offering superior products and exemplary levels of service and support. One of our biggest differentiators includes emphasizing our client’s partnerships, providing them with business technology solutions, and assisting their organizations in growing to their fullest potential.

“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.”

“I am truly honored to once again be included in this prestigious group. Although I don’t consider myself to be much of a pioneer or trailblazer, being in the technology industry for over 30 years has definitely allowed me to be part of a transformational industry.” – Tim Farmer said, CEO and President of Systems Solutions.

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at
