Channel Futures evaluates and ranks MSPs according to a unique methodology, which uses a proprietary algorithm to weights different revenue streams according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem. Channel Futures received a record number of applicants for this year’s ranking, with applications up 35% over last year.
The Top 100 Vertical Markets MSPs rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s Q4 2018 and January 2019 readership survey and ChannelE2E’s vertical market industry coverage. Rankings are based on annual recurring revenues in specific vertical markets.
