CRN Names Central PA Technologies to Its 2021 MSP 500 List

CAMP HILL, (Feb.16) – Central PA Technologies announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CPT to its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Pioneer 250 category. The list, released annually, recognizes the leading North American solution providers demonstrating innovative approaches to helping businesses navigate the ongoing complexities of IT solutions.

"We're thrilled to make CRN’s list, especially in light of last year's unique circumstances," said Joe Wright, Jr., President at CPT. "2020 was tough, and I am so proud of the way our team adapted and supported our clients through it all. This honor is truly about their combined contributions."

Last March, CPT faced unprecedented challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The sudden increase in remote work increased demand for support and accelerated moving the majority of its customers to the cloud.

“It happened quickly and without much warning,” said Megan Wright, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CPT. “There were questions about how to manage remote employees, concerns over collaborating in real time, and the security of business data. Our team made it work.”

CPT created SecureCare, a proactive, all-inclusive Managed Security Services practice. This robust offering put an increased focus on Security and helped to ease current and prospective clients’ worry in a challenging time. Another significant development was to switch VOIP solutions to better manage client telecommunications.

“Effective MSPs enable companies to focus on their core objectives while improving the quality and reliability of their cloud computing capabilities,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list deserve recognition for their innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services, and the ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems to maximize return on investments.”

“We try to be better every day. The key to our success is challenging ourselves to ensure we are truly living our core values,” Wright said. Providing a quality experience for our clients along with a positive atmosphere for our own employees is the best way we know how to do business.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at
