Background

The MSPmentor 501 report is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2012. The MSPmentor 501 report recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.

“MSPmentor has honored the top 100 MSPs annually since 2008,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “The managed services market continues to grow swiftly. Small, midsize and large MSPs worldwide deserve greater recognition for their accelerating momentum. The new MSPmentor 501 Global Edition and MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition, along with our regional lists, fulfill that mission.”

MSP Momentum Continues

MSPs on this year’s global 501 list lifted their combined annual recurring revenues 24.5 percent to $2.54 billion. Together, those MSPs now manage more than 5.6 million PCs and servers, and nearly 400,000 smartphones and tablets, according to Joe Panettieri, editorial director, Nine Lives Media.
