May 3rd, 2017, Nashville, TN: Advanced Network Solutions has been named to After Nines Inc.’s ChannelE2E Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs list and research ( The list and research #Top100MSP identify and honor the top 100 managed services providers (MSPs) in healthcare, government, financial services, manufacturing and additional vertical markets.


The Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s Q1 2017 readership survey. 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 identified several key trends:

  • The most successful vertical market MSPs are zeroing in on financial services and healthcare, although consolidation in the healthcare IT services sector is accelerating.
  • MSP micro-verticals have emerged. Examples include IT services for veterinary hospitals (healthcare); hedge funds (financial services), and clubs and resorts (hospitality).
  • The MSP shift from device management to user experience is still accelerating. Top 100 MSPs now manage 513 million people and their user experiences vs only 401,445 devices.
  • 53 new companies made this year’s list. The list churn involves ChannelE2E’s rapidly expanding readership combined with MSP M&A activity.
