SingleHop Named to CRN’s 2016 Solutions Provider 500 List; Fourth Honor from CRN in 2016

Company Ranks No. 374 Among North America’s 500 Largest Technology Integrators; Sixth Largest Among Eight Chicago-Headquartered Companies

CHICAGO – June 6, 2015 – SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand hosted private clouds and managed hosting, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named SingleHop to its 2016 Solution Provider 500 list for the fourth consecutive year, ranking the company at No. 374. SingleHop is the sixth largest of eight firms headquartered Chicago to be named to the list and is one of 26 Chicago metro companies to achieve a position on the 2016 SP500 list. The SP500 is CRN’s annual ranking of the largest technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue. SingleHop has repeatedly ranked in CRN’s lists of elite providers across a number of categories.

Inclusion in the Service Provider 500 list follows closely on the heels of SingleHop receiving several additional honors from CRN since the start of 2016, including recognition as:

  • A leading managed services provider on the MSP500 list, with further recognition in the Hosting 100 subcategory
  • One of the 20 Coolest Cloud Infrastructure Vendors of 2016
  • A leader in superior channel programs and strategy, represented by awarding SingleHop vice president of channel sales, Mark Mercado as a 2016 Channel Chief

“SingleHop’s strong growth trajectory has enabled us to climb over 100 spots on the SP500 since 2013,” said Mercado. “Four-time validation as a top-tier provider on this list speaks to SingleHop’s ability to continually innovate in a changing IT landscape while providing a consistent high-level of service to our partners and customers.”

The SP500 is CRN’s predominant channel partner award list, serving as the industry standard for recognition of the most successful solution provider companies in the channel since 1995.

“The 2016 Solution Provider 500 represent a total, combined revenue of over $334 billion—a testament to their success in keeping pace with the rapidly changing demands of today’s IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “This prestigious list recognizes those companies with the highest revenue and serves as a valuable industry resource for vendors seeking out top solution providers to partner with. We congratulate each of the Solution Provider 500 companies and look forward to their continued success.”
