Lafayette, LA, June 28, 2022: Global Data Systems, a leading full-service managed service provider, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers in the prestigious 2022 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
Global Data Systems has been selected as one of the technology industry’s top-performing providers of managed services by the editors of Channel Futures. For the past 16 years, managed service providers (MSPs) from around the globe have submitted applications to be included 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 opportunities, innovation, technology solutions supported, and company and customer demographics.
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.
Channel Futures is pleased to name Global Data Systems to the 2022 MSP 501.
“We are happy to be acknowledged amongst the most prestigious MSPs in the world,” said Chris Vincent, President of Global Data Systems. “The industry has faced some challenging times in the last couple of years and I am happy to say that we have not lost traction in our ability to deliver world-class solutions and services to our clients. We continue to innovate. We continue to grow. And best of all, we continue to be a trusted partner in making IT simple for many organizations. I am extremely proud of our team and their dedication to making Global Data Systems what it is today.”
This year’s list once again attracted a record number of applicants, making it one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. Winners are being recognized on the Channel Futures website and will be honored at a special ceremony at the Channel Futures MSP Summit + Channel Partners Leadership Summit, Sept. 13-16, in Orlando, 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. Today, many of their services and technology offerings focus on growing customer needs in the areas of cloud, security, collaboration and support of hybrid work forces.
