For the third year in a row, company recognized as top managed-service provider

FAIRFAX, Va. – May 19, 2021 – ECS, a leading provider of advanced technology, science, and engineering solutions has been named the #1 top government managed-service provider (MSP) for the third year in a row on After Nines Inc.’s ChannelE2E Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs 2021 list. The annual list and research identify and honor the top 100 MSPs in healthcare, legal, government, financial services, manufacturing and additional vertical markets.

The Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s Q4 2020 and January 2021 readership survey, and ChannelE2E’s vertical market industry coverage. MSPs featured throughout the list and research leverage deep vertical market expertise to drive annual recurring revenues (ARR) in specific market segments.

This year’s research revealed several key MSP market trends, including:

  • Honorees generated a combined $1.40 billion in vertical market annual recurring revenue (ARR) in 2020, up from $1.12 billion million in 2019. The surge involved organic growth combined with continued merger and acquisition (M&A) activity.
  • The most successful vertical market MSPs are zeroing in on healthcare and financial services, while MSPs in the legal and not-for-profit sectors also showed particularly strong growth.
  • The Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs now manage more than 3.1 million users across their customer sites as of 2020, up from 2.8 million in 2019.

“ECS is thrilled to be named the top government MSP,” said Andy Woods, ECS vice president of enterprise managed services. “We are proud to bring our managed-service offerings in cloud, cyber, and other critical domains to customers across the federal, state, and local government, and enterprise and commercial verticals.”
