Synoptek Team

IRVINE, CA — June 7, 2016 —Synoptek, a  “full-service” managed IT services provider and managed cloud hosting firm, has been named a top managed service provider on Penton Technology’s worldwide MSPmentor 501 list for the 3rd year in a row. Synoptek also qualified as a tier-one Total Service Provider (TSP) and was ranked #4 TSP of 2016.

To be honored as a tier-one TSP, a service provider is required to generate 70%+ of revenue from a combination of cloud, managed services, and IT consulting services, and produce $180,000 worth of revenue per employee. When it comes to cloud, managed services leadership, and employee efficiency, only tier-one providers have a “true” Managed Services focus.

MSPmentor’s global ranking of the world’s Top 501 Managed Services Providers continues to be published annually and is based on various criteria such as technological versatility, growth, devices under management, recurring revenue, and more. Synoptek’s continuous rise in the worldwide MSP rankings is due to their focus on extraordinary service levels, which has enhanced new client on-boarding efficiency, and helped to retain its loyal customer base.

Today’s announcement demonstrates Synoptek’s core focus in delivering superior managed services day-to-day for mid to large-sized clients that reside in market verticals dependent on reliable information technology management coupled with strict adherence to industry compliance. Synoptek’s latest service portfolio is designed to meet increasing market demands for IT-as-a-Service, managed IT security, and custom cloud solutions. As a top-ranked, tier-one TSP, Synoptek is paving the way for managed IT service leadership in a crowded service provider market.

Synoptek acquired Earthlink’s IT Services division on February 1, 2016, in a strategic move to expand Synoptek’s presence across the eastern US, and improve their national data center infrastructure. Both Synoptek and EarthLink customers will be better served with more focused technology solutions along with geographic diversity.

“Our teams focus on being an IT leadership and management partner for our customers. This means our teams constantly strategize on how our clients can use technology to improve their business today, and in the future”, said Tim Britt, Synoptek CEO. “Many service providers only focus on keeping current operations running,” Britt noted. “But if you’re just keeping the current operations running, then you are falling behind.” said Tim Britt, Synoptek CEO. “We continue to focus on improving our customer experience and simplifying managed IT services, as we anticipate continued strong demand for tier-one services. We focus on achieving value for our customers.”
