DES MOINES, Iowa — August 3, 2022 — LightEdge, a leading provider of colocation, cloud and managed service solutions, has been named #7 in the 2022 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings, proving the company’s position as one of the technology industry’s top-performing managed service providers (MSPs).

“LightEdge has seen historic revenue, hiring, and customer retention gains over the past two years, fueled by a collaborative, customer-focused team culture and a growing channel program,” said Jason Schaffer, Vice President of Business Development at LightEdge. “We’re also investing heavily in our channel partners’ success. LightEdge’s channel team takes a lot of pride in creating long-standing relationships that are ‘win-win,’ not just for today but for years into the future.”This year, LightEdge is further developing its Alliance partnerships with suppliers who support the company’s managed services. The team is also leveraging technology to enhance relationships and engage with partners 24/7, wherever they’re working.

“Mutual relationships of trust and understanding of one another’s business are critical, for both partner and customer relationships — and that’s particularly true during times of intense change,” Schaffer added. “Over the past 25 years, we have embraced the changes our customers were facing, just like we do today. We meet them where they are to help guide them to where they want to be, backed by our highly compliant cloud environment, which serves unique business demands and complex workloads.”
