Annual MSP 501 Identifies Best-in-Class Global MSP Businesses & Leading Trends in Managed Services
Rockville, MD—Optimal Networks, Inc. has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers and one of the top MSPs in Maryland on the prestigious 2020 annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
For the 13th year, MSPs from around the globe completed an exhaustive survey and application this spring to self-report product offerings, annual total and recurring revenues, profits, revenue mix, growth opportunities and company and customer demographic information. Applicants are ranked on a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to long-term health and viability; commitment to recurring revenue; and operational efficiency.
“We are honored to have received this award that recognizes our role in the advancement of the managed services market,” said Heinan Landa, CEO and Founder of Optimal Networks. “To be selected for our strategic and innovative work for the eighth year in a row is humbling.”
In the 13 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants, and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.
“These benchmarks are what local businesses should examine when choosing a managed service provider with the experience, skill set, business knowledge and defined strategy to help them succeed in this fast-changing digital landscape,” says Kris Blackmon, Senior content Director, Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “In all of the managed service providers that Maryland has to offer, Optimal Networks stands as a shining example of excellence.”
Ten MSP 501 special award winners will be recognized at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Virtual: Digital Events for the Modern Channel on September 8-10. Nominations for these special awards, including Digital Innovator of the Year, Executive of the Year and the Newcomer Award, were included in the MSP 501 application, and all candidates were encouraged to submit for them.
