Who Was Ranked Among The Top 501 Global Managed Service Providers by Channel Futures?

Why Is This Such An Important Award?

Because the 11th Annual MSP 501 identifies the World’s Most Forward-Thinking MSPs and Leading Trends in Managed Services.

MSP 501 Award Winner Spade Technology

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. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America, and beyond.

How Did Channel Futures Decide On The Ranking Order?

As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed up with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to their unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. They weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

Myles Keough, CEO of Spade Technology tells us more:

“The team at Spade Technology is extremely pleased to receive this honor. We view this, and other awards, as a recognition of our ability and commitment to providing the best IT service possible for all of our clients in New England.”

How Will The Team At Spade Technology Be Recognized?

Spade Technology and the other MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year, October 9-12, in Philadelphia, as well as in the Fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.

“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.”
