Air IT named as one of the top 150 managed service providers in the world in MSP 501 rankings

Air IT has been named as one of the top and most progressive managed service providers (MSPs) in the world in the latest edition of an industry league table.

The Sandiacre-based IT and communications specialist, a strategic partner of East Midlands Chamber, climbed 40 places to position 142 in the global rankings of the 2020 Channel Futures MSP 501 list.

It also placed ninth in the UK and number one in the East Midlands.

Air IT CEO John Whitty said the results reinforced the company’s continued growth and commitment to supporting SMEs both regionally and nationally.

“Once again, we’re delighted to have been recognised by Channel Futures for the contribution and progression we’re making within our industry,” he added.

“Breaking into the top 150 MSPs worldwide and ninth in the UK is a real achievement, and clearly demonstrates our commitment to providing the very highest standards of service as a premium provider of managed IT and communication services.”

New methodology used to judge Air IT and other companies in MSP 501

For the 13th edition of the MSP 501, compiled by industry news website Channel Futures, applicants were ranked using a new methodology with weighted criteria including revenue, growth and overall commitment to the delivery of managed services and operational efficiency.

Kris Blackmon, senior content director at Channel Partners and Channel Futures, said: “The MSP 501 judgement methodology was brand new in 2020 to drill down into not just what makes a big managed service provider, but what makes a great managed service provider.

“The 2020 winners are truly the best examples of innovation and business acumen on the planet.

“These benchmarks are what local businesses should examine when choosing a managed service provider with the experience, skill set, business knowledge and defined strategy to help them succeed in this fast-changing digital landscape.

“In all of the managed service providers that the Midlands has to offer, Air IT stands as a shining example of excellence.”
