Milwaukee, WI, Jun 20th, 2019 – For 12 years, managed service providers (MSPs) around the world throw their hats in the ring and apply for Channel Futures’ annual MSP 501 ranking list, the IT channel’s first, largest and most comprehensive industry ranking survey. Today we are proud to announce that PDS was recognized in the top 6% (#30) of the 2019 winners of the ChannelFutures MSP 501.

“We’re once again thrilled to be recognized among this group of international companies as a thought leader in the Managed Services business,” said PDS Technical Principal Consultant, Greg Fliearman. “We are gaining huge momentum is this area of our business and we will continue to partner with our customers in healthcare, corporate, government and beyond to assist them with developing services and solutions that meet their business objectives.”

MSPs recognized on this year’s list have distinguished themselves among the largest pool of applicants the MSP 501 has ever received. Last year was a record-breaking year in terms of the number and quality of submissions, and 2019 saw a 35% year-over-year growth rate in applications from 2018. The competition was fierce, but their commitment to taking risks on strategic business decisions, dedication to customer support and intuitive knowledge of the managed services market helped these companies rise above the competition. The winners placed in the top 501 because of their forward-thinking business strategies and ability to anticipate and act upon trends in the fast-evolving IT channel market.

“This year’s applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progress 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.”

PDS is honored by this industry recognition, and looks forward to continuing to serve our customer base with best-in-class managed service offerings.
