masterIT Honored By 11th Annual MSP 501 Identifying World’s Most Forward-Thinking MSP’s

Dateline, July 25th, 2018: Channel Futures is pleased to honor masterIT to be ranked among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative IT managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures 11th-annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings.

Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of IT managed service providers worldwide. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. Revenue figures were weighted according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

"It is an honor to be named to MSPmentor’s global list all 11 years since its inception," said Michael Drake, founder and CEO of masterIT. "We have been fortunate to be included in their rankings since they began in 2007. This new list is a testimony to our team, growing global industry and the difference we make in clients’ lives with cloud, on-premise and mobile technology."

This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond.

“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.”


Channel Futures collected applicant data online for the 2018 MSP 501 from Feb. 28 through May 31, 2018. Companies recognized in the MSP 501 list were ranked based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors.
