Mississauga, ON, Aug. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) is proud to announce it has again been named as one of the technology industry’s premier worldwide managed service providers (MSP) in the prestigious 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. This is the twelfth consecutive year Konica Minolta has been selected as one of the top-performing MSPs. This recognition represents the efforts of its IT Services Division in the U.S. as well as Canada.
For the past 17 years, managed service providers around the globe have submitted applications for inclusion on this prestigious and definitive listing. The Channel Futures MSP 501 survey examines organizational performance based on annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue mix, growth, innovation and supported technologies.
MSPs that qualify for the list must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures. It ranks applicants using a unique methodology that weighs financial performance according to long-term health and viability, commitment to recurring revenue and operational efficiency.
“As a leading MSP in North America, this is an important recognition for Konica Minolta, and we are proud to be named among the best-in-class providers that appear on this list,” said Todd Croteau, President, Global Information Technology Services, Konica Minolta. “We work extremely hard to provide customized IT services and solutions to address our clients’ ongoing IT management and support needs while also helping these organizations embrace the digital transformation that will give them a competitive advantage for future success.”
This year’s list is one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. Winners will be recognized on the Channel Futures website and honoured during a special ceremony at the Channel Futures Leadership Summit, Oct. 30-Nov. 2, in Miami, Florida.
Since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking into a vibrant group of innovators focused on high levels of customer satisfaction at small, medium and large organizations in public and private sectors. Many of their services and technology offerings focus on customer needs in the areas of cloud, security, collaboration and hybrid work forces.
“The 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners persevered through challenging times to become the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today,” said Jeff O’Heir, Channel Futures senior news editor and MSP 501 project manager. “The MSP 501 ranking doesn’t award MSPs solely on their size and revenue. It acknowledges the business acumen, best practices and trusted advice they deliver to customers every day. They deserve the honour.”
“We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2023 winners, and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of the managed services sector,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager of Informa Tech Channels. “These providers are most certainly driving a new wave of innovation in the industry and are demonstrating a commitment to moving the MSP and entire channel forward.”
