“SouthTech’s advancement up this prestigious list to #234 of the world’s top 501 managed service providers is an indication that our focus on helping our clients prosper through technology works” stated SouthTech president Paul Hoffman. “Much of our growth during the past year is directly from servicing a client base that is growing and advancing. We have fantastic clients and look forward to helping them with their future success.”
The MSPmentor 501 report is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2013. The MSPmentor 501 report recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.
“MSPmentor congratulates SouthTech on this unique honor,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a Penton business. “Qualifying for our MSPmentor 501 Global Edition puts SouthTech in rare company.”
MSPs on this year’s global 501 list lifted their combined annual recurring revenues $2.61 billion, continuing seven straight years of strong growth. Together, those MSPs now manage more than 700,000 servers, according to Jessica Davis, managing editor, MSPmentor.
