Wichita, KS—(February 15, 2012)—High Touch Technologies has been named to Nine Lives Media’s fifth-annual MSPmentor 100 Global Edition, a distinguished list and report identifying the world’s top 100 managed service providers (MSPs). High Touch was named #23rd.
“We are thrilled to be named 23rd in the world amongst managed service providers. In a very short period of time, High Touch Technologies has achieved and surpassed what many companies can only aspire to accomplish.
