Polar Systems Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

West Linn, OR, February 17, 2016 – Polar Systems, Inc., is excited to announce that they have been recognized by The Channel Company’s 2016 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list, as one of the MSP Pioneer 250, for the 3rd year in a row. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their top-notch offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.

In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.

The list is divided into three categories: 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-premise and off-premise services; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.

Polar Systems brings over 30 years of experience in the Managed Services area to some of the most respected small to midsize businesses in Oregon and Southwest Washington.  Their foundation service, PolarStar™ Managed Services is a proactive service of vigilance over network performance, exposing hardware and software weaknesses, and external threats in real time to prevent issues that could cripple a company’s ability to conduct business.  PolarStar Managed Services additionally includes vCIO services, IT strategy and roadmap design, proactive management and Help Desk support, rounding out a complete comprehensive managed services solution for the small and midsize business.

“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology. We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”

“I have a great sense of pride for the team at Polar Systems for receiving this industry recognition from CRN  for the 3rd year in a row,” said Tim Tragesser, President of Polar Systems.  “Polar Systems continues to be a national leader in the fast-growing Managed Services market segment.  With one of the most skilled teams in the Portland area, we continue to provide the highest level of service and value to our diverse client base.”
