(Paducah, KY) February 13th, 2024 — Systems Solutions, a managed services provider company, 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 2024.

The MSP 500 list compiled by CRN serves as a comprehensive guide to identifying and recognizing the top Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in North America. MSPs play a crucial role in supporting businesses by offering managed services that enhance efficiency, simplify IT solutions, and optimize return on investment.

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.

The MSP 500 list aims to showcase and celebrate MSPs that are driving growth and innovation in the industry. These service providers not only enable businesses to harness complex technologies but also contribute to maintaining a strong focus on core business goals without stretching financial resources. By categorizing MSPs based on their business models and areas of expertise, the list helps end-users find the right partners to meet their specific needs and challenges in the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Systems Solutions has been awarded the 2024 Pioneer 250 award by the CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list for its outstanding business model and success in offering managed services to the SMB market. Their methodology revolves around treating technology as an investment rather than a cost center, which has proven to be effective in helping organizations adopt digital transformation strategies. By engaging in these discussions, clients have been able to leverage technology to achieve their business goals.

Jennifer Follett, VP of US Content and executive Editor CRN, The Channel Company, emphasized the significance of managed services for businesses at various scales, stating, “Managed services provide a route for businesses of all sizes to maintain efficiency and adaptability throughout their growth journey. The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market, enabling their clients to achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets. This allows businesses to allocate resources strategically, concentrating on mission-critical tasks that drive future success.”

“Our organization has always taken a proactive approach in addressing the increasing needs of our clients in response to digital transformation,” said Tim Farmer, President of Systems Solutions. “This year, we’ve noticed a significant demand for advanced network security protection options. As a result, we’ve expanded our security expertise even further with new industry certifications.  In addition, a new Dedicated Security Advisor offering has been created to adapt and provide our clients with cutting-edge security solutions. By equipping our employees with more specialized knowledge and training, our clients’ overall security profile has greatly increased.  This allows us to continue building long-lasting business partnerships with our clients.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2024 issue of CRN and online at
