Press Release

Pittsfield, MA, July 16, 2018

CompuWorks, a leading Managed IT and Technology Success Provider, today announced that Channel Futures, a brand within Informa, has named CompuWorks to the No. 211 spot on its 2018 MSP 501 Worldwide Rankings. The company ranked No. 15 in the New England region of the U.S. The MSP 501 is the information technology channel’s first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of Managed IT Services Providers worldwide.

“It is an honor to be recognized among the world’s best Managed IT Services Providers,” stated Dave Hall, President of CompuWorks.  “Succeeding over more than 30 years in the ever-changing technology world takes a commitment to continuous improvement.  Investments in process, people and solutions expertise are what it takes to deliver innovative and high value IT solution.”

“The days of IT providers primarily functioning as problem solvers is long over.  Operationally mature managed IT service providers focus on proactively preventing issues and aligning clients’ technology with standards and best practices”, said CompuWorks co-founder Alan Bauman.  “And while that’s good and necessary it’s not enough.  Companies use technology to achieve organizational goals and helping them do that more effectively through consulting is the highest value service an IT partner can provide.”

Dave Hall added, ”One of our core values is Client Success.  We know we’re succeeding when we help our clients achieve their goals.”

“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,” said Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Futures 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.”

To qualify for the 2018 MSP 501, organizations were required to submit confidential survey applications and verified 2017 financial results. MSPs were evaluated by Channel Futures and Clarity Channel Advisors and ranked according to a unique methodology, which recognized that not all revenue streams are created equal. Revenue figures were weighted according to how well each candidate’s business strategy anticipated trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

The complete MSP 501 list is available online at and a full MSP 501 report, available this fall, will leverage applicant responses, interviews and historical data to identify business and technology trends in the IT channel.
