Both Nottingham business finished in the top 100 in the world which placed them in the top 5 UK based providers.

Your IT Managing Director Lee Hewson commented

“We’ve long suspected that Nottingham leads the way when it comes to Managed Services in the UK, and this result proves it! The fact that there are so many quality providers locally, and this extends beyond ourselves and Air IT, pushes each of us to provide the very highest quality of service. You simply wouldn’t survive in a market as competitive as this if you are not at the top of your game.”

“We’ve been entering the MSP501 for a number of years and this is the first time we’ve broken the top 100 internationally. We’ve never made the UK 10 before so to get in the top 5 is a real honour. It’s a testament to the hard work we’ve put in over the past 12 months, in what has been a difficult time for everyone. The pandemic has highlighted just how important good IT is for business and we’re perfectly placed to help local businesses get fantastic, flexible solutions”.

The MSP 501 attracts entrants from MSP’s of all sizes and includes winners from the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and across Europe. The number 1 ranked provider this year is an American ‘TelCo’ employing 11,000 staff worldwide.

“The 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners are the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today. They stand head and shoulders above the competition,” said Robert DeMarzo, vice president of content for the Channel Futures and Channel Partners Conference & Expo division of Informa Tech Channels. “Coordinated by Channel Futures MSP 501 editor Allison Francis, this year’s list was clearly one of the best ever on record.”
