Technology Lab Recognized on CRN’s 2024 MSP 500 List

Honored Among Pioneer 250 Category

Nashville, Tenn., February 12, 2024 — Technology Lab, a leading provider of managed services and IT solutions for K-12 education, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Technology Lab 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.

Technology Lab’s Pioneer 250 honor among the CRN’s 2024 MSP 500 List highlights the company’s innovative approach to aligning technology strategy with K-12 educational objectives, alongside significant investments in personnel and operational efficiency. The award underscores Technology Lab’s commitment to reshaping the IT landscape in education, as evidenced by its remarkable growth in managed services and strategic expansion into Southeastern markets. Technology Lab remains steadfast in delivering unparalleled value to the 200+ K-12 campuses it serves across the U.S.

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.”

“Celebrating our recognition with the MSP 500/Pioneer 250 award is truly an honor and a testament to our unwavering dedication to pushing the boundaries of innovation within the K-12 education sector. In 2024, we see tremendous opportunities emerging in areas such as school incident management solutions, remote learning services, and the integration of AI tools. These advancements align with our commitment to providing cutting-edge technology solutions and reinforce our mission to enhance operational efficiencies and maximize educational outcomes for our clients,” said James Pope, Chief Revenue Officer, Technology Lab.
