West Monroe named to two 2018 lists of leading managed services providers

West Monroe Partners, a national business and technology consultancy today announced that its Performance Services practice has been named to two national lists of leading managed service providers.

CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named West Monroe to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. The annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services.

West Monroe also ranked 14th overall on After Nines Inc.’s ChannelE2E Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs list and research for 2018, honoring managed services providers in the healthcare, government, financial services, manufacturing, and additional vertical sectors. West Monroe received the top ranking among Illinois-based organizations.

“We are pleased to earn recognition as a leading service provider. This is a true testament to the people of our Performance Services team and their passion for excellence and improvement,” said Nathan Ulery, managing director and practice leader. “We have made deliberate investments in people and processes and in building a team that is onshore and well connected to our clients. When it comes down to it, people are what drive performance.”

Channel E2E also recognized West Monroe among the top five managed services firms with a financial services focus.  “The financial services recognition is particularly rewarding due to the investments we have made in cybersecurity and our own internal controls,” Ulery continued.  “Our financial services clients have increasing expectations for security and demand their MSP partners to demonstrate these capabilities consistently. Our fast-growing Salesforce managed services offering also helps support the growth of our financial services clients.”

West Monroe’s Performance Services team includes more than 115 professionals and deep technology experts who work with clients to run systems and processes at peak performance. Backed by the firm’s full-service business and technology consulting capabilities, the practice offers strategic advice and operational support to organizations on matters ranging from customer service, service level expectations, infrastructure management, operations improvement, IT risk management, security, disaster recovery, and compliance.

CRN’s MSP 500 list is divided into three categories: 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-premise, cloud-based security services. It was featured in the February 218 issue of CRN and online here:

The Top 100 Vertical Markets MSPs rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s Q4 2017 and January 2018 readership survey and ChannelE2E’s vertical market industry coverage. The list and research have recognized West Monroe in all three years of publication. Last year, West Monroe ranked 18th overall. Find the online list and associated research here:
