August 4, 2020: Approyo has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 2020 annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
For the 13th year running, MSPs from around the globe completed an exhaustive survey and application this spring to self-report product offerings, annual total and recurring revenues, profits, revenue mix, growth opportunities and company and customer demographic information. Applicants are ranked on a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to long-term health and viability; commitment to recurring revenue; and operational efficiency.
Channel Futures is pleased to name Approyo to the 2020 MSP 501.
"We are blessed to be recognized among the greatest Managed Service Providers in the world," said Chris Carter, CEO of Approyo. "Thank you to Channel Futures for giving us this prestigious title, and thank you to our customers, partners, and staff for making it happen."
