Integrated Business Technologies (IBT) Named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider 500 List
Company Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today’s IT Channel

Broken Arrow, OK, February 19, 2014 – Integrated Business Technologies (IBT), today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.

In today's world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.

This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as  off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.

IBT’s managed services are based on a fixed monthly rate where customers receive strategic IT support for a fraction of the cost of employing a full-time IT professional. With IBT’s flat-rate services, IT support becomes a reliable investment.

“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”

“We are honored to be recognized by CRN at a national level as one of the MSP Pioneer 250,” said Eric Kehmeier, President and co-founder of IBT. “We continually strive to provide our clients with the newest, most efficient technologies available so they can run their businesses successfully. We plan to continue growing as technology solutions evolve and emerge.”

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at,
