BALTIMORE — Helion Automotive Technologies announced it has been ranked No. 65 out of 501 top managed services providers in the world, up four spots in the 11th annual MSP 501 ranking. The MSP 501 is compiled by Channel Futures and is widely recognized as the IT industry’s most respected rankings. 

“Being named one of the top MSPs in the world for the second year in a row is an honor, and truly demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best IT managed services to the automotive industry,” said Erik Nachbahr, Helion’s founder and president. “The automotive industry continues to be transformed by technology and our team is dedicated to bringing exceptional IT support to our clients.”

As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions, with applications pouring in from Europe, Asia, South America, and beyond, all according to the announcement.

“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, Channel Future’s content director 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.”
