The 2016 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by MSPmentor and its partner, Clarity Channel Advisors, collected online from March through April 2016. The list recognises top Cloud service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors and services.
This year, the MSP placed 84 out of 501 recognised service providers worldwide.
“We are honoured to be featured on this important industry list for the fifth year in a row,” blueAPACHE managing director, Chris Marshall, said.
“Our steep rise up the ranks is a validation that our service strategy, offering and commitment continues to resonate well in the market.
"By delivering managed services, Cloud, network, business continuity and voice as a single customised service to suit each client, and backing this with our unique single point of accountability creates genuine market differentiation,” he said.
MSPmentor editor-in-chief, Aldrin Brown, said the managed service provider market is evolving at a rapid pace and the companies showcased on the 2016 MSP 501 list represent the most agile, flexible and innovative organisations in the industry.
“On behalf of Penton and MSPmentor, I would like to congratulate blueAPACHE for its recognition as an MSP 501 honoree.”
According to Penton and MSPmentor, this year’s study honed in on the business models, technologies, vertical markets and customers segments that MSP companies leverage most.
It also leveraged a new and improved ranking algorithm and methodology set to become the universal benchmark by which MSP organisations can be compared, year after year.
