Winter Springs, Fla., July 3, 2023 – One of the leading media outlets in the information technology industry has recognized Tech Rage IT as one of the top 101 companies to lead the future of the industry.

Tech Rage IT was ranked No. 40 on the list.

Today, Channel Futures named the Winter Springs-based company to its NextGen 101 list, saying Tech Rage IT is one of “those companies that hold great promise given the leading-edge information technology and communication solutions they offer.”

This is significant as more than four million people visit the outlet’s website every month.

“This is an incredible honor for our company and a clear recognition that we are working hard to be different from other companies in this field,” says Erica Martinez-Rose, CEO, Tech Rage IT. “Our focus on automation of our services and how our clients utilize technology is leading the way in growing our business and can be a model for others to follow.”

The NextGen 101, an MSP 501 list, honors industry-leading managed service and technology providers that are driving a new wave of growth and innovation for the tech channel via the groundbreaking solutions they deliver to their customers. Many of these MSPs generate recurring revenue from cloud, security, unified communications, and other solutions to small, medium and large clients.

These MSPs - based on their growth, drive and innovation - represent the future of the technology channel and IT industry. This year’s NextGen 101 winners were selected from applications received for the 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501.

“I love following these companies and talking with their owners,” said Jeff O’Heir, Channel Futures senior news editor and manager of the MSP 501. “They’re excited about the latest technologies, embrace innovation, and often bring new sales and marketing strategies to the table. Many of them quickly move into the MSP 501 list where they have an even bigger impact on the industry.”

Tech Rage IT was formed by Martinez-Rose and her husband, Matt Rose, in 2015 with the goal of providing IT services differently than other providers. Today, the company employs more than seven in Central Florida through its offices at the Winter Springs Business Incubator.
