Annual MSP 501 Identifies Industry's Best-in-Class Businesses Growing Via Recurring Revenue and Innovation

NEW YORK, NY – June 28, 2022 – Align, the premier global provider of technology infrastructure solutions and managed IT services, today announced it has been named one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 2022 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. This year, Align placed within the top 300 on the list among the most cutting-edge and innovative organizations in the industry.

The Channel Futures MSP 501 is the world's first, largest and most comprehensive survey and ranking list in the IT channel. 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 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.

"It is an esteemed honor to be recognized as a member of such an elite group of technology service providers," said Chris Zadrima, director of Managed Services. 

"The Align Managed Services team continues to pioneer innovation within the financial services space. Our suite of managed public cloud services coupled with a full cybersecurity program was built with today's decentralized workforce in mind, and has improved the reliability and flexibility of our clients' IT while enhancing their security posture."

This year’s list once again attracted a record number of applicants, making it one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. 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.

“The 2022 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners are the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today,” said Allison Francis, senior news editor for Channel Futures. “The 501 has truly evolved with the MSP market, as showcased by this year’s crop of winners. This is also the fifth consecutive year of application pool growth, making this year’s list one of the best on record.”

“We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2022 winners, and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of the managed services sector,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager of Informa Tech Channels. “These providers are most certainly driving a new wave of innovation in the industry and are demonstrating a commitment to moving the MSP and entire channel forward.”
