Nine Lives Media Names West Monroe Partners to the MSPmentor 200 Global Edition

West Monroe Partners, ranked #104 in North America and #4 in Illinois, provides Managed Services for organizations across a variety of industries.

West Monroe Partners, LLC has landed on Nine Lives Media’s MSPmentor 200 North America Edition, a list identifying North America’s top 200 managed service providers (MSPs). West Monroe ranked #104 in North America and #4 in Illinois. All of the honorees can be found by visiting http://www.mspmentor.net/top-100-msps.

The MSPmentor 200 North America Edition is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2011. The MSPmentor 200 recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.

Since its inception in 2002, West Monroe Partners has provided Managed Services for organizations across a variety of industries by providing both routine and proactive support for a variety of infrastructure needs. The company expanded its Managed Services practice in October 2009 by adding new monitoring and maintenance tools, as well as IT service management capabilities to its dedicated Managed Services team.

“I am thrilled that in just 3 years since we expanded our Managed Services practice we have achieved this prestigious ranking in the company of MSPs that have been established for 5 to 10 years.” said Mark Nelson, Managed Services Practice Lead. “By taking our core service desk and infrastructure management offerings and expanding them with SharePoint, Application Management, Software Asset Management and Disaster Recovery services, we are delivering more specialized services our clients need to run their businesses. This is a true testament to the great progress we’ve made in the MSP space and just the start of things to come as we continue to grow and expand our offerings.”

“Nine Lives Media and MSPmentor congratulate West Monroe Partners for its leadership position in North America,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “In the fiercely competitive IT services market, these MSPs represent the best of the best.”

“MSPs on this year’s North America 200 list lifted their annual recurring revenues 25 percent to US$1.05 billion, an impressive feat,” said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of Nine Lives Media. “Those MSPs are now managing 4.1 million desktop and mobile devices for customers, up 33 percent from 2010.”
