Hollywood, Florida (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
Connections for Business, a leading IT solutions provider serving South Florida since 1977, earned a spot on Nine Lives Media’s 2015 MSPmentor 501 list, a global ranking of the world’s top managed services providers (MSPs). After making the prestigious list five years in a row, Connections has earned the number 216 ranking out of thousands of MSPs worldwide.
“We work hard to provide the best services in the industry. Our solutions really make sense to so many growth-oriented customers,“ said David Bennett, CEO of Connections. “We’re very proud to receive the Top-MSP award for the fifth year in a row. And, special thanks to our tremendous team to help make it happen.”
Connections offers an innovative combination of affordable, enterprise-class IT solutions to its South Florida clients. The company’s main service offering, ConnectCare®, includes cloud services, business continuity, enterprise-level data protection and disaster recovery – an essential service in South Florida. In addition, the company designed a software specifically for MSPs, ConnectSMART, to help them convert performance data into easy-to-read dashboards—increasing efficiency, profitability and productivity.
Bennett added, “We pride ourselves on helping business owners make smart decisions. Most business managers only think of IT when there is a problem. Our job is to work behind the scenes to ensure there is 'worry-free IT', with no issues. We think and care for the details that managers may not even know to ask about.”
Each year, MSPmentor gathers information for its annual rankings through the participation of MSPs and IT service providers in their annual survey. This year’s survey was conducted from December 2014 through January 2015. Rankings are based on Penton Technology’s unique criteria for MSPs such as annual recurring revenues, total revenues and more.
In 2015, the top MSPmentor 501 companies recorded higher recurring revenues than ever before. Combined, the total annual recurring revenues for all of MSPmentor 501 2015 companies reached a record high of $3.95 billion in 2014, up 26.5 percent year-over-year.
