We’re extremely proud to announce that we have climbed 60 places to position 164 in the prestigious MSPmentor501: Global edition, which ranks the top and most progressive managed service providers (MSPs) worldwide.

Now in its 11th year, 2018 marked a record year for entries with thousands of MSPs around the globe seeking a place on the esteemed list.

Despite such fierce competition, we’re incredibly pleased to have climbed the rankings from position 224 to 164 in the last year alone.

Additionally, we have excelled from 12th to 5th in the UK and retain our title as the East Midlands number one – reinforcing our regional and ever-growing national presence in the MSP market.

James Healey, Managing Director at Air IT says:

After climbing the world rankings for the last four years running, we’re delighted to break well into the top 200 MSPs worldwide. This achievement demonstrates the significant progress we have made in the last 12 months and recognises our commitment to providing the very highest standards of service as a world-class managed IT and Communication provider.

About MSPmentor 501: 2018 edition

This year the prestigious study was carried out by Channel Futures and Clarity Channel Advisors, who collected data on entrants between 28th February and 31st May, 2018.

Amongst other factors, metrics considered included weightings around recurring revenue and how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in a fast-paced and highly competitive market place. This in-depth analysis makes it the largest and most thorough ranking of its kind in the world.

Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501 says:

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. They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come.

 James adds:

This year’s rankings show the rapid rate at which the MSP market is expanding, so to be ranked 164th is an incredibly special achievement. With further expansion on the cards over the next year, we’d be thrilled to secure a place in the top 150 in the world to demonstrate our standing in the wider MSP community.
