Annual MSP 501 Identifies Industry’s Best-in-Class BusinessesGrowing Via Recurring Revenue and Innovation
JULY 9, 2021 – Connecting Point has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers in the prestigious 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
Connecting Point has been selected as one of the technology industry’s top-performing providers of managed services by the editors of Channel Futures. For the past 15 years, MSPs from around the globe have submitted applications to be included on this prestigious and definitive listing. The Channel Futures MSP 501 survey examines organizational performance based on annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue mix, growth opportunities, innovation, technology solutions supported, and company and customer demographics.
The MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
Managed services providers that qualify for the list must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures that rank applicants using a unique methodology that weighs financial performance according to long-term health and viability, commitment to recurring revenue and operational efficiency.
Channel Futures is pleased to name Connecting Point to the 2021 MSP 501.
Connecting Point’s President, Scott Warner provided comment on this accolade. "This is our 9th year in a row being selected to this prestigious list. We are humbled to be recognized among this year’s class of elite providers and congratulate those who earned a spot in this list. Of course, this is a direct testament to the individuals on our team that work hard each day to provide excellent client experiences and world class IT solutions and support. We are blessed to have fantastic clients who give us the opportunity to serve them each day. The importance and reliance on technology and IT security is growing rapidly, and we believe that through a focused model and an emphasis on building relationships with our clients, we can help them better leverage technology and enable their businesses to thrive."
This year’s list attracted a record number of applicants and was one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. Since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking into a vibrant group of innovators focused on high levels of customer satisfaction at small, medium, and large organizations in public and private sectors. Today, many of their services and technology offerings focus on growing customer needs in the areas of cloud, security, collaboration, and support of hybrid work forces.
“The 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners are the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today. They stand head and shoulders above the competition,” said Robert DeMarzo, vice president of content for the Channel Futures and Channel Partners Conference & Expo division of Informa Tech Channels. “Coordinated by Channel Futures MSP 501 editor Allison Francis, this year’s list was clearly one of the best ever on record.”
