Woodland Hills, CA – June 27, 2018 FPA Technology Services, Inc. (FPA), the preeminent IT Service Provider in the greater Los Angeles area, announced today that it has been ranked among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures 11th-annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings.
The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond.
As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to our unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. We weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.
“It’s an honor to appear on Channel Futures' MSP 501 list dedicated to showcasing the most elite technical performing Managed Services Providers globally,” stated Craig Pollack, Founder & CEO of FPA. “Recognition like this only confirms our approach that investing in our staff, our technical capabilities, and our process and systems ensures our continued success.”
Channel Futures is pleased to honor FPA Technology Services, Inc.
The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year October 9-12 in Philadelphia, as well as in the Fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.
“This year’s applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progressivity 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.”
