Melbourne, Australia – For the sixth consecutive year, blueAPACHE have been named on Penton Technology’s annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition – a distinguished list and report identifying the world’s top 501 Managed Service Providers (MSPs). This year, blueAPACHE ranked 77 out of 501 recognised service providers in the world, jumping ahead by 7 positions from last year and are one of only 3 Australian companies to make the top 100.

2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the industry’s most respected list of MSPs. It is based on data collected by MSPmentor and its partner, Clarity Channel Advisors between February and May this year. The methodology used to arrive at the ranking leverages insights gleaned from real-world customer interactions and more than a decade of experience working in the MSP community. In addition to recurring revenue, it examines the business models, technologies, vertical markets and customer segments in order to identify the top managed services and cloud service providers.

“It is an honour to be recognised again on a global stage” said Chris Marshall, blueAPACHE Managing Director. “Since first appearing on this list in 2012, we have strengthened our position each year. Our strong focus on customer service, consultative partnering and being a single point of accountability for our clients has contributed towards making us a global leader in the MSP space. Our converged emPOWER suite of services integrates all our offerings – Managed Services, Cloud, Network, Voice, Software and Consulting – into a comprehensive, unified, bespoke solution that clients are drawn towards. This is a unique differentiator and the reason we continue to move up the MSPMentor Global Edition.”
