CSI NAMED TO MANAGED SERVICE PROVIDER 500 LIST BY CRN

- Company Recognized for Exemplary Approach to Delivery of Managed IT Services -

PADUCAH, KY., Feb. 19, 2015 – Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end financial technology solutions, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantages.

CRN’s industryfocused directory places CSI among its 150 Elite Service Providers, which are large datacenter-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services. Through its cloud-based managed services, which includes a robust mix of co-managed and fully hosted services, CSI Managed Services empowers financial institutions with secure access to on-demand technology and IT services without the need to invest in expensive hardware and added staff.

“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, chief executive officer of The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”

CSI Managed Services provides cloud-delivered IT performance, infrastructure and security managed services to financial institutions across the U.S. By serving exclusively as a cloud service provider for banks and credit unions, CSI continues to expand its managed services offerings to meet the complex demands of the financial services industry.

“As a company, we continually choose to invest in new innovations in an effort to further complement our suite of cloud-based solutions, specifically as we see a consistent increase in demand for new and improved managed services offerings,” said David Culbertson, president of technology services for CSI. “We are extremely honored to be recognized by CRN as one of the Elite 150 MSPs and plan to continue growing our service offerings well into 2015 and beyond.”

To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs. Coverage of the MSP 500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
