A/NZ Cloud computing provider, Brennan IT, has been named the top managed services provider in Australia, and fourth globally by the 2012 MSPmentor 100 Global Edition Report.
This is the third consecutive year Brennan IT has taken out top honours in Australia and moved up a rank globally from last year.
Drawn from data collected by MSPmentor’s global online survey conducted between October and December last year, the list recognises top managed services providers based on a range of metrics including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.
Brennan IT managing director, Dave Stevens, said the award capped off a strong year, with the company experiencing record revenue growth for the last four quarters.
Q2 2012 was its strongest sales quarter on record, up 15 per cent from its previous best quarter.
“Awards such as these provide an independent validation of the strength of our strategy which is centred around delivering a complete IT solution as part of a fully managed offering,” he said.
He recognised its managed services offerings and Cloud services for the growth, accounting for possibly 30 per cent of its business within the next 12 months.
Brennan IT general manager sales and marketing, Stephen Sims, said the company will be looking at sales and marketing strategies in order to retain this position.
“You can never stand still in this game. We will continue investing in the sales and marketing engine of this business to go out and expand into the market. We think that we have about a 20 per cent market share in our addressable market, so there is plenty of space to grow,” Sims said.
The company will look to recruit people in sales, marketing and consulting to maintain the growth momentum, he said.
In relation to the products and services Brennan IT offers, over the next 12 months, it intends to liaise regularly with its clients to make tweaks to the solutions in meeting their expectations.
“We have got the right strategy and the right people in place to make sure that the growth continues into the next year. If the market conditions pick up, we’ve got a portfolio that we can take advantage of and if they head backwards, organisations will be looking to outsource certain aspects of their IT – which we are well positioned to do,” Sims said.
