Structured’s pandemic-era leadership, services and annual revenue place it firmly among elite North American solution providers for 2021.
Each year CRN compiles the SP 500, a list of the leading IT channel partner organizations across North America by revenue. Despite months of uncertainty around the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Structured actively engaged clients and prospects throughout 2020 to provide them with business insights and thought leadership regarding strategic information technology purchases and deployments.
Structured worked diligently with clients in every business vertical to make them aware of special promotions being offered by technology manufacturers. The team also spent significant time helping clients determine the best ways to maximize return on investments in IT and unified communication and collaboration platforms.
“For many organizations, 2020 was a marathon master class in how to remain productive in the face of adversity,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “Our clients experienced a range of significant business disruptions – everything from relatively mundane problems like staffing and equipment shortages, to serious issues like temporary shutdowns or office relocations, to devastating losses resulting from Covid-19 illnesses and deaths.”
“Our goal throughout was to offer the very best advice and service possible to make sure our clients experienced as little disruption as the pandemic would allow. We are grateful that so many customers trusted our guidance and expertise during a truly challenging time,” Fowler added.
For its part, Structured saw demand surge in 2020 for technologies enabling secure remote work and collaboration; cloud-based services like DRaaS and BaaS; and managed services for 24x7x365 security and network operations. These unabating trends — combined with ongoing demand for smarter wireless, better edge computing, and faster, cheaper connectivity – should continue fueling growth throughout 2021.
“CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list serves as the industry standard for top-performing technology integrators, strategic service providers, and IT consultants, which makes it a valuable resource for technology vendors looking to partner with today’s best-of-breed IT solution providers,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “On behalf of The Channel Company, I’d like to congratulate these companies for their incredible contributions to the growth and success of the IT channel.”
The complete 2021 Solution Provider 500 list is available online at www.crn.com/sp-500 and a sample from the list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine.
