The 11th annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings had a record number of applicants from around the globe, of which 415 Group claimed a spot, being named one of the most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs) in 2018.
“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.”
The MSP 501 list was the first of its kind and has become the most pronounced listing of top managed service providers in the world. Channel Futures determines its list of MSP 501 winners by analyzing data provided by each company to include, among other factors, growth and recurring revenue. They use their own unique methodology to rank the most progressive and forward-thinking MSPs in the world.
Channel Futures, along with Clarity Channel Advisors, ranked each winner by recognizing that not all revenue earned produces the same return, and therefore should not be weighed equally between applicants. They analyzed the candidate’s revenue in accordance to how accurately their business strategy predicts, and how quickly they act upon, the rapid and ever-changing trends and demands of the IT MSP world.
As a MSP 501 Winner, 415 Group is eligible to win one of Channel Future’s 10 special awards, new this year, such as MSP of the Year, CEO of the Year, or a Lifetime Achievement Award. 415 Group will be recognized, along with the award recipients and all other MSP 501 Winners from across the world, at an award ceremony during Channel Partners Evolution in Philadelphia later this year. We will also be mentioned in the Fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.
