Recently, ChannelE2E published their Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs List 2017, based on Q1 2017 research, and there were many familiar names that make the list!
We’d like to take this time to congratulate all the Continuum partners among the top 100. These prestigious partners include:
86. Netforce Ltd
50. Red Level
45. LAN Infotech
43. BlackInk IT
42. Vistem Solutions Inc.
These Continuum partners who are among the top 100 on this list exemplify the potential of using the Continuum model to its fullest to realize not only a competitive advantage in the channel, but also to maximize the efficiency of their operations for maximum profitability and effective service delivery. And, it’s clear that there is no one path to success; MSPs of all sizes are able to grow and scale their business to become dominant forces in their region.
However, when to comes to servicing vertical markets, MSPs must also be a trusted advisor and subject matter expert in their chosen vertical industry, the vCIO who can act on their clients’ behalf for all IT related issues—being able to understand the clients’ IT needs, anticipate the future technological demands of their business, and successfully remediate any issues that may arise along the way. In that way, vertically-aligned MSPs are challenged with successfully aligning to the specifications and specialized needs of the vertical. However, the rewards can also be great—as shown in this list—for those who not only provide consistent service, but also understand their role as a vCIO to their clients. MSPs who concentrate on specific verticals can scale their business effectively to meet the demands for their clients, as Continuum MSPs are able to leverage the IT management platform’s single pane of glass to effectively monitor, manage and backup client endpoints all from one solution, while using the Continuum NOC to handle as much business as can be closed.
Again, congratulations to those Continuum MSPs who are among the top 100. We look forward to seeing even more in the future!
