Calligo, the global data optimization and privacy specialist, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers (MSP) on the prestigious 12th annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
Calligo is headquartered in Jersey, UK, with an established presence across Canada, US and Europe. Its high ranking in the 2019 MSP 501 was in recognition of its innovation in cloud and IT managed services, over 100% year on year growth, and outstanding customer service.
Calligo was ranked in the top 100 managed service providers globally, coming in at 98th. It was the 6th highest ranked MSP in Canada and also the 6th highest in EMEA. Calligo has moved up 219 places over the course of two years, further solidifying its status as one of the world’s leading managed service provider.
The company credits this dramatic rise to focusing on delivering value to clients beyond maintaining and securing environments or desktops, like most other MSPs, and instead on supporting the entire data journey, from capture to monetization. Calligo offers additional innovative data services that set it apart from traditional MSPs, including supporting clients’ ongoing adherence to applicable data privacy legislation, or using Artificial Intelligence and data analytics to discover valuable insights held within the business’ data.
Commenting on the rankings, Julian Box, Founder and CEO of Calligo, said:
“I’m honoured that Calligo has been named as one of the world’s top managed services providers. Our remarkable leap up the rankings validates our approach of supporting our clients’ data needs throughout the entire data lifecycle. This, plus our determination to always put the client first, truly understand their requirements and opportunities and then deliver services that will optimize their data, whether through cloud, IT managed services, data insights or our data privacy services. It’s highly rewarding to see our ethos, capabilities and the hard work and dedication of our teams recognised in such a prestigious international ranking.”
Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program, adds:
“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry.
“As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”
