The MSP 501 is the first, largest, and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers in the world. This year, Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America, and beyond.
And this year … Outsource Solutions GroupRanked Among The Top 501 Global Managed Service Providers!
Why Is Ranking In The MSP 501 So Important?
The MSP 501 ranking is important because it identifies the world’s most forward-thinking IT Managed Service Providers who follow the leading trends in technology.
The 2018 List was based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from Feb. 28 through May 31, 2018.
How Did Channel Futures Decide On The Ranking Order For The MSP 501?
As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed up with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. They recognized the top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth, and other factors.
MSPs were ranked according to their unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. They weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.
Don Sofolo, President of Outsource Solutions Group, commented:
“I’m so proud of our IT team, as well as our administrative staff who helped us achieve this amazing feat! This is a huge acknowledgment and recognition in the managed IT services industry. Way to go Outsource IT!”
When Will OutSource IT Receive Their MSP 501 Award?
The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution, from October 9-12, 2018 in Philadelphia. They will also be mentioned in the fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.
Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501 tells us more:
“This year’s applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progressivity of the managed services market. They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come.”
