The Roadmap to Success-
Magna5’s Managed IT Services business is poised for strong organic and acquisitive growth. Magna5 acquired New York-based SpinnerTech in May of 2021 and is pursuing additional acquisition opportunities to enhance capabilities and expand its reach.
“The demand for managed IT services in the lower middle-market is paving the way for Magna5’s booming organic growth,” says Jim Ashton, General Partner at NewSpring Holdings. “At the same time, the market is extremely fragmented, which provides an exciting opportunity for us to leverage our existing platform and execute our M&A strategy to build Magna5 into an even more formidable managed IT services player.”
Magna5 is constantly evaluating new products and IT technologies and comparing them against their existing product stack to develop new solutions for the end customers. By offering these advanced technologies as a fully managed service, Magna5 can introduce these ‘best of breed’ tools to organizations that do not have the IT staff or expertise to implement them on their own.

What Sets Magna5 Apart: A Case Study-
For 23 years, satisfied customers throughout the greater Pittsburgh area have relied on Ryan Automotive for quality tire and automotive services. With four locations in Crafton, Pleasant Hills, Kennedy Township and Moon Township, they needed a reliable managed services partner to ensure their network, internet and phone systems were always up and running without downtime.
The fast-paced business could not afford their point-of-sale and inventory management systems to be down and disrupt business operation causing revenue loss. Aging technology at multiple locations was experiencing downtime with frequent equipment failure and unreliable internet connections.
They were seeking a trusted partner who could centrally manage their network in a cloud environment to improve network performance, connectivity and security across all store locations. Magna5 installed cloud-based Office applications to enhance communication and improve productivity across store locations. Stores can now collaborate, share and communicate with email and flexible collaboration tools accessible from either desktop or mobile devices.
“While the IT landscape changes, Magna5 is constantly evaluating the available tools/technologies and how they can benefit our customers.”
