February 19, 2013: NorthStar Technology Group, Inc. has landed on Nine Lives Media’s MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition (http://www.mspmentor.net/top100), a new list that honors the world’s top managed service providers (MSPs) that have 20 or fewer employees.
The MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition is part of the larger MSPmentor 501 research report (http://www.mspmentor.net/top501). The comprehensive report covers:
- New: MSPmentor 501 Global Edition
- New: MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition (top MSPs with 10 or fewer employees)
- MSPmentor 200 North America Edition
- MSPmentor 50 EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) Edition
- MSPmentor 25 AANZ (Asia, Australia, New Zealand) Edition
- New: In-depth data tracking mobile device management (MDM), managed cloud services and other recurring revenue opportunities for MSPs.
“We are so proud of our awesome employees and loyal customers,” said Ken Satkunam, President, NorthStar Technology Group. “Without either, we would not be on this list.”
The MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition and 501 Global Edition are based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2012. Each lists recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.
“Congratulations to NorthStar Technology Group on this honor,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “The MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition identifies a new generation of MSPs that keep small business IT systems and cloud services running worldwide.”
MSPs on this year’s global 501 list, including many small business MSPs, lifted their combined annual recurring revenues 24.5 percent to $2.54 billion. Together, those MSPs now manage more than 5.6 million PCs and servers, and nearly 400,000 smartphones and tablets, according to Joe Panettieri, editorial director, Nine Lives Media.
