BOSTON, M.A., July 18, 2019 – Focus Technology, a leading information technology partner in the Northeast, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 12th-annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. The MSP 501 Identifies Top Forward-Thinking Global MSPs & Leading Trends in Managed Services. Focus Technology has earned spot #6 regionally and #63 globally as a first-time recipient of this prestigious award.
“Focus is extremely pleased to be recognized for its impressive growth and delivery of best-in-class Managed services offerings,” said Tim Lasonde, Vice President of Customer Operations, Managed Services, Focus Technology Solutions. “Our MSP practice continues to grow and evolve as we help our customers innovate and solve complex challenges.”
Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.
“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program. “As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”
Winners will be recognized at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year September 9-12 in Washington, D.C. Tim Lasonde will be accepting the award on behalf of Focus.
