NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 – Abacus Group ranks 48th among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures 11th annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings.
The 2018 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from February 28 through May 31, 2018. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors.
“We’re honored to once again be ranked high on the MSP 501 list, a testament to our commitment to innovation,” said Chris Grandi, CEO of Abacus Group. “Since founding Abacus 10 years ago, our continuous investment in automation and other business tools has allowed us to grow into a global company and leading provider of hosted IT services for the alternative investment industry.”
The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions, including from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology, weighing revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.
“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,” says Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501. “They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come.”
