First-Ever European Partners 51 List Identifies EMEA’s Top Forward-Thinking MSPs

Custard Technical Services has been named as one of EMEA’S premier managed service providers on the inaugural Channel Futures European Partners 51 (EP 51) rankings.

The rankings are part of the annual MSP 501 initiative from Channel Futures. Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs are then ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

This year, in conjunction with Informa Tech’s first EMEA event, Channel Evolution Europe, 51 European MSPs have been chosen to represent the first 501 program solely dedicated to EMEA partners.

Channel Futures is pleased to name Custard Technical Services as one of the 2019 EP 51.

"Our MSP 501 ranking recognises our commitment to setting high standards of service as a Managed Service Provider," said Chris Pass, CEO, Custard Technical Services. "It is proof of our business strengths and the commitment of our dedicated employees."

EP 51 winners will be honoured at a special event at Channel Evolution Europe, held 2-3 December 2019 at the Park Plaza Victoria hotel in London.

“We are excited to bring special recognition to our European partners. The EP 51, part of the annual Channel Futures MSP 501 program, represents Informa Tech’s commitment to recognizing the excellence, innovation and forward-thinking strategies evident in the EMEA market,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program. “In conjunction with the inaugural Channel Evolution Europe event, the EP 51 program will serve as the foundation of the extension of our content into the European theatre through our events, award initiatives and editorial coverage. We congratulate these elite European MSPs and look forward to building a close-knit community of partners in the EMEA region.”

In addition to deciding the rankings, the MSP 501 survey drives the creation of an annual in-depth study of business and technology trends in the IT channel. The full MSP 501 Report leverages applicant responses, interviews with industry experts and historical data to give a well-rounded picture of the managed services opportunity. Channel Partners and Channel Futures is excited to announce the first EMEA-specific report based on data collected from its European MSP 501 winners, to be released at Channel Evolution Europe.

The complete 2019 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.
