10th Annual MSP 501 Ranking and Study Identifies World’s Most Progressive MSPs in Information Technology

mspmentor2017July 07, 2017 (Cleveland, Ohio) – For the fifth year in a row, World Synergy® has ranked among the world’s most progressive 501 Managed Service Providers (MSPs). According to Penton Technology’s 10th-annual MSP 501 list and study, the top MSP 501 companies ranked this year include organizations from around the world and from diverse technology and business backgrounds. Collectively, the ranked organizations amassed $14.48 billion in total revenue (based on 2016 results), up more than 15% from a year earlier.

“It is an honor to be ranked among the top performing MSP providers in the world, improving our rank this year to 288, which is our highest rank to-date. Thanks to the dedicated work of our employees and the partnerships we have developed with our customers, we are proud that 2017 marks our fifth year in a row on the MSP 501 list,” said Glenn Smith, CEO of World Synergy.


The 2017 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by MSPmentor and its partner, Clarity Channel Advisors. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors. In addition to a ranking on the MSP 501 list, every company that participated in the study has been assigned a score reflecting its intrinsic value. The measure, known as the Total Service Provider (TSP) score, evaluates an MSP’s mix of revenue from various activities, including consulting, cloud, reselling and managed services.

“On behalf of MSPmentor, I would like to congratulate World Synergy for its recognition as an MSP 501 honoree,” said Aldrin Brown, Editor in Chief, MSPmentor. “The managed service provider market is evolving at a rapid pace and the companies showcased on the 2017 MSP 501 list represent the most agile, flexible and innovative organizations in the industry.”

Data was collected online from February through May 2017. The complete 2017 MSP 501 list is available at MSPmentor.
