This ranking is a huge accomplishment because the number of applicants increased by 35% over 2018. Despite the increased competition, we still made the cut as one of the best managed service providers (MSPs) in the world. Read on to learn how the MSP 501 are selected and what it means for St. Louis businesses.
On June 18th, 2019 ThrottleNet was named in the 12th annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. This recognition is given out each year to the top 501 IT companies that are forward thinking and leading trends in managed services. This is the fifth year in a row that ThrottleNet has been named as one of the 501 best managed service providers in the world.
“Our mission at ThrottleNet has always been to become the best MSP in St. Louis and bring world-class IT services, solutions and security to our local business community,” said George Rosenthal, President and founder of ThrottleNet. “We are constantly evolving and changing the way we go about our business to keep up with advancements and changes in managed service technology. We’re very proud of the work we’re doing for our clients and it is a great honor to be recognized in the MSP 501 for the fifth year in a row.”
In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.
The 2019 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from March 1 through May 31, 2019. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on factors like product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, and revenue mix. The complete 2019 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.
“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. “As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”
In addition to deciding the MSP 501 rankings, the survey drives 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.
