Birmingham-based TekLinks Inc. is ranked among the top 20 Managed Service Providers in the world by MSPmentor.The MSP news blog and leading guide to managed services released its 2016 MSPmentor 501 list, which ranks the top managed service providers and IT service providers in the world. The report is based on data from MSPmentor's global online survey, conducted December 2015 to January 2016, on a range of metrics like annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.
TekLinks has ranked on the list since 2010.
"Every year we eagerly anticipate the release of the MSPMentor list so we can see where we stand next to our peers," says David Powell, Vice President Strategic Development at TekLinks. "This industry has continued to grow and the list becomes more impressive each year. When you look at the names that are ranked ahead of us, those are some of the biggest names in our industry. To continue to move up the list, this year into the top 20 globally, really speaks to the amazing team we have assembled at TekLinks and their commitment to growth and innovation. We couldn’t be prouder of this accomplishment.”
2016 marks the first year in which MSPmentor has released the methodology behind the MSP 501.
"Working with our partner, Clarity Channel Advisors, we gathered input from key MSPs and fellow industry thought leaders, and devised a methodology around revenue. Recognizing that not all revenue is the same—revenue from hardware resell, for example, is generally not as profitable as revenue from managed services—we weighted revenue from different go-to-market activities before making our calculation," says T.C. Doyle of MSPmentor.
The weighting behind various revenue steams is presented here:
