March 26, 2015 (Cleveland, Ohio) For the third consecutive time, World Synergy has appeared on Penton Technology’s eighth-annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition, a distinguished list and report identifying the world’s top 501 managed service providers (MSPs). The complete 501 list is currently available on the MSPmentor website.

“It is a great honor to achieve this recognition three years in a row. We are privileged to be able to help so many great customers. We couldn’t do it without our amazing employees, they are truly the cornerstone of our continued success and growth,” said Glenn Smith, CEO of World Synergy.

Each year, MSPmentor gathers information for its annual rankings through the participation of managed service providers and IT service providers in our annual survey. The survey was conducted from December 2014 through January 2015. Rankings are based on Penton Technology’s unique criteria for MSPs such as annual recurring revenues, total revenues and more.

“We want to congratulate World Synergy and look forward to covering their growth strategies in the year ahead,” said Marcia Parker, Executive Director, Penton Technology Group.

This year the top MSPmentor 501 companies recorded higher recurring revenues than ever before. Combined, the total annual recurring revenues for all of the MSPmentor 501 2015 companies reached a record high of $3.95 billion in 2014, up 26.5% year over year.

“World Synergy has been serving Managed IT Services and Technology support to Cleveland, Akron, and all of Northeast Ohio since 1998 and has a strong tradition rooted in our local community. Being named to the MSP 501 for the third year in a row is a great honor and illustrates that World Synergy continues to be one of the top Managed IT Service Providers in the World. We are thankful to Penton Technology for naming us once again.
