A North-east firm has been ranked among the most progressive managed service providers (MSPs) for IT in the world, according to the latest edition of an influential global guide to MSPs.
For the fifth year in a row, Clark Integrated Technologies (IT) features in the annual MSPmentor 501 list and study published by Penton Technology.
Clark IT is also in the Top 50 for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for a third time. Clark IT is one of only two Scottish firms to make it into the EMEA Top 50.
Clark IT’s listing is an incredible achievement considering the size of the MSP market globally, says Austen Clark, Managing Director of Clark IT.
Mr Clark continues:
“This is a major milestone for the team at Clark Integrated Technologies and is recognition of all the work they put in, and how they are continuing to grow and develop into a formidable group of engineers.
“Being recognised as one of the top 50 MSPs in Europe, the Middle East and America is a worthy accolade for our company and its people, and further strengthens our place as an established and trusted provider.’’
Each year, MSPmentor undertakes research to gather information for its annual rankings through the participation of managed service providers and IT service providers in their survey. It attracts a large entry of thousands of IT solutions companies but only a select 501 make it onto the honours list that is MSP 501.
At the top are robust services providers that span multiple geographies, product categories and technological capabilities. When it comes to customers, nine out of 10 MSP 501 companies sell to small organisations with fewer than 100 employees. While small business remains a mainstay of many MSPs, 70 percent also sell to companies with as many as 1,000 employees, and nearly one in five MSP 501 companies sell to enterprise customers with at least 1,000 or more employees.
