July 5, 2018: Technology Associates ranks 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, South America and beyond.

11th Annual MSP 501 Identifies World’s Most Forward-Thinking Managed Service Providers (MSPs) & Leading Trends in Managed Services.

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 our unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. We weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

“I’m so honored and humbled to announce that Technology Associates made the Top Managed Service Providers in the world on our very first try at this competition,” said Eric Hobbs, CEO, Technology Associates. “There are a ton of people to credit for this success including our awesome clients and our incredible staff who are dedicated to delivering outstanding service. I want to thank each of you for the trust and dedication to our mission. It’s been a fantastic 21 years, but we’re just getting started.”

Channel Futures is pleased to honor Technology Associates.

For the first time, Channel Futures will also name 10 special award winners, including MSP of the Year, CEO of the Year and one Lifetime Achievement Award for a career of excellence in the channel. 

The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year October 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,” says 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.”

About Technology Associates

Providing Managed IT Services and Support for businesses in the Raleigh area since 1997, the Technology Associates team learned a thing or two about helping businesses with their technology.  It’s this collective knowledge and experience gained over the past two decades in the business that forms the foundation of our proprietary process called InSight.

IT Support is where it all started. This is the bread-and-butter of our industry. Nowadays this model looks like “patch, spy, spam, monitoring and a bucket of hours” — what most people refer to as “Managed Services” — when in fact there is very little management going on!

We have a unique approach to IT managed services.  A process and that improves your business efficiency, lowers capital costs and exposes hidden risks.  All IT Services companies say they are “proactive,” but we put our money where our mouth is by structuring a relationship that transfers all IT risks to us under a fixed fee agreement.  The real reason people pick us over others is our best practices that have been proven over and over to lower reactive support issues over time and paint a very clear picture of your technology and risks that often lie hidden until too late.

Your business’s success is the core of our own success. We’ve crafted and honed a proprietary IT solution and process called InSight that ensures we’re always in alignment with you and your organization’s goals, and that you have a clear picture of how your technology supports your business and clearly identifies risks.
