Peters & Associates is honored to have been awarded a spot on Channel Futures’ MSP501 2018 Edition. This is the IT industry’s most comprehensive ranking of Managed Services Providers (MSPs) worldwide. Channel Futures selected MSPs with forward-thinking business strategies and the ability to anticipate and act upon trends in the fast-evolving IT channel market.
What’s an MSP?
A managed service provider, or MSP, is a company that provides support to the business functions of organizations on a recurring basis. This can involve the practice of outsourcing, on a proactive basis, IT manager’s responsibilities and functions. MSPs can completely replace your IT department or just help to support your existing IT staff. Hiring an MSP is usually a part of a strategy intended to improve operations and cut expenses. MSPs are a great resource for companies who want to expand their capabilities without making a large upfront investment.
How are companies chosen for the MSP501?
As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate progressive and forward-leaning companies. Data was collected online from February 28 through May 31, 2018. MSPs were ranked according to Channel Futures’ 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.
“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,” says Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501. “They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come.”
