RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – was recently ranked No. 6 among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures 11th annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings.

The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, North and South America and beyond.

As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to their unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. They weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

“As middle market companies struggle with skilled labor shortages, increasingly complex technologies and rigorous compliance requirements, they appreciate RSM’s ability to not only serve as a strategic advisor, but to deliver on the promise of a stronger, more secure and scalable IT infrastructure,” said John Harder, national infrastructure leader with RSM US LLP. “This top-ten ranking reflects the high level of skill and experience our managed services professionals bring to our clients every day.”

“We understand the importance of digital transformation in helping our customers remain competitive and on a strong growth track for the future,” said Diego Rosenfeld, national managed IT services leader with RSM US LLP. “But it is difficult for a company to retain all of the necessary knowledge and skill sets in house. Our success is a reflection of the value we bring as first choice technology advisors.”

The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year, Oct. 9-12 in Philadelphia, as well as in the fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.

“This year’s applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progressivity of the managed services market,” said Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501. “They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come. Channel Futures is pleased to honor RSM US LLP.”

The 2018 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from Feb. 28 through May 31, 2018. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors.
