11th Annual MSP 501 Identifies World’s Most Forward-Thinking MSPs & Leading Trends in Managed Services

July 12th, 2018: For the fourth consecutive year, Center for Computer Resources, CCR, ranks among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers, MSPs, according to Channel Futures 11th-annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings.

The MSP 501 list is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond.

"To be recognized as a top MSP throughout the world, amongst a list of other distinguished MSP’s, is an incredible honor," said Curtis Hicks II, President & CEO of Center for Computer Resources. “We feel very fortunate to be included for the fourth year in a row.”

As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to our unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal.

"Our team works together to provide our clients with extraordinary support," said Hicks, who joined CCR in 1992. “Our achievements are a direct result of their ongoing commitment to provide the best service possible.”

The 2018 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors.

“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 full MSP 501 report, available this fall, will leverage applicant responses, interviews and historical data to identify business and technology trends in the IT channel. Highlights will include:

  • Revenue growth and business models
  • Hiring trends and workforce dynamics
  • Business strategies
  • Service deliverables
  • Business tools and automation investments

The complete 2018 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.
