Logicalis was recently named #2 in North America and #3 globally on Penton Technology’s eighth annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition. This distinguished list and report identify the world’s top managed service providers (MSPs).

Each year, MSPmentor gathers information for its annual rankings through the participation of MSPs and IT service providers, and rankings are based on criteria such as annual recurring revenues and total revenues. MSPmentor is the ultimate guide to managed services, featuring the industry’s top-ranked blogs, research, Channel Expert Hour Webcasts, and FastChat videos. The site is also considered the #1 online media destination for MSPs worldwide.

Logicalis excels in the MSP arena because we proactively identified a significant change taking place among our customers: business users want technology solutions they can consume as a service. They also want to free their in-house IT staff from the burden of maintaining the traditional IT ‘back room’ and instead allow IT to focus on ways to use technology more strategically.

Taking this approach increases the level of IT services available to business users and decreases the costs for delivering those services. We were one of the first MSPs to address this need by fully embracing the concept of the service-defined enterprise, which is becoming increasingly important to the way businesses want to operate.
