CSI Ranked in Top Four Percent of Largest Global Managed Service Providers by MSPmentor
-Sixth-annual report recognized CSI’s Managed Services Division as top provider for sixth consecutive year-
PADUCAH, Ky., Feb. 26, 2013 – Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end technology solutions that empower financial institutions to remain competitive, compliant and profitable, ranked in the top four percent of the world’s largest managed service providers according to MSPmentor’s annual Top 501 Global Managed Service Providers (MSP) List. This marks the sixth consecutive year that CSI has been included in the annual listing.
Based on the results of MSPmentor’s sixth-annual survey, which ran from October 2012 through December 2012, CSI is the 17th largest global MSP and the 14th largest in North America. Rather than focusing solely on an MSP’s total revenue, MSPmentor employs an index measurement based on:
· Overall managed services revenue and growth;
· Percentage managed services revenue growth;
· Managed services revenue per employee;
· Number of devices managed; and
· Other data points comparing fiscal 2012 to fiscal 2011.
“As technology grows increasingly complex, financial institutions are discovering that managed services can be a cost-effective approach to simplifying daily operations and the entire IT enterprise,” said Steve Powless, chief executive officer of CSI. “CSI has focused on managed services over the past few years to assist our customers in better leveraging technology, and being recognized by MSPmentor for a sixth consecutive year validates the hard work and dedication we have put into developing our managed services offerings.”
According to the MSPmentor global report, CSI’s acquisition of HEIT in 2011 helped significantly expand the company’s presence in the MSP space and further secure its status as one of the largest firms specifically servicing the financial services industry. CSI now has more than 46,000 PCs under management, along with 12,500-plus servers and network devices.
“We are honored to be recognized once again by MSPmentor as one of the world’s leading providers of managed services,” said Dan Holt, senior vice president and general manager of CSI’s Managed Services Division. “As CSI continues to deliver the most relevant, secure technology for financial institutions, we lead the industry with our cloud solutions, allowing our customers improved efficiency and renewed focus on their core competencies.”
