For the 11th consecutive year, Channel Futures compiled the MSP 501, a ranking of the world’s top managed services providers. According to Channel Futures, “winners placed in the top 501 because of their forward-thinking business strategies and ability to anticipate and act upon trends in the fast-evolving IT channel market.” In the 2018 MSP 501 ranking, Expedient grabbed the number 7 spot, up three positions from its number 10 ranking in the 2017 MSP 501 list.
