World Synergy Ranks Among Top 501 Managed Service Providers in the World for Sixth Consecutive Year

11th Annual MSP 501 Ranking and Study Identifies World’s Most Progressive MSPs in Information Technology, World Synergy Named #290.

July 9, 2018 (Cleveland, Ohio) – For the sixth consecutive year, World Synergy has ranked among the world’s most progressive 501 Managed Service Providers (MSPs). According to Channel Future’s 11th annual MSP 501 study, the top MSP 501 companies include organizations from around the world with diverse technology and business backgrounds.

The MSP 501 is the first, largest, and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. The 2018 competition received a record number of submissions from MSPs around the globe that compete in a wide range of verticals and offer a diverse mix of services. The winners are placed in the top 501 because of their forward-thinking business strategies and ability to anticipate and act upon trends in the fast-evolving IT channel market.

“It’s an honor to rank amongst the world’s leading MSPs,” said Glenn Smith, CEO of World Synergy. “Thanks to the hard work of our employees and the partnerships we have developed with our customers, we are proud that 2018 marks our sixth year in a row on the MSP 501 list.”

The MSP 501 list is based on data collected by MSPmentor and its partner, Clarity Channel Advisors. This list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth, number of customer devices managed, and more.

“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.”

The full MSP 501 report, available this fall, will leverage applicant responses, interviews, and historical data to identify business and technology trends in the IT channel. Highlights will include:

  • Revenue growth and business models
  • Hiring trends and workforce dynamics
  • Business strategies
  • Service deliverables
  • Business tools and automation investments

The 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. 

The complete 2018 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.



The 2018 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from Feb. 28 through May 31, 2018. The MSP 501 list recognizes top-managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth, and other factors.
