TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConnectWise, developer of the world's leading business management platform designed exclusively for technology companies, announced today it has earned high marks in the Managed Services category of The Channel Company's esteemed 2015 CRN® Annual Report Card.

With all ConnectWise Business Suite products deeply integrated the offering enables MSPs to run, manage and streamline their business, allowing them to do more with less.
