Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application process where applicants report product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, and revenue mix. The MSP ranking methodology attributes weight to a company’s ability to align business strategy with trends in the ever-evolving channel ecosystem.
“Evolution with an eye on the future is not a new concept for Nex-Tech. Beginning with simple telephone service over 60 years ago, Nex-Tech continues to provide state-of-the-art services to its customers, said Jimmy Todd, CEO and General Manager. “With an eye toward the future, we remain focused on building the necessary infrastructure alongside the associated technologies necessary for co-existence in a global community.”
In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list to a dynamic interface between service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define growing managed service opportunities.
“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program.
An added benefit to the MSP 501 ranking is the creation of an annual in-depth study of business and technology trends in the IT channel, released each year at the Channel Partners Evolution conference. The full MSP 501 Report leverages applicant responses, interviews with industry experts and historical data to give a well-rounded picture of the managed services opportunity.
