“This is a great honour considering the tough competition from the UK and Netherlands, with thousands of new entries this year in the new category…” said Jakobus Koorts, CEO, Numata Business IT. “…despite this, thanks to the relentless devotion from our staff – as well as the loyalty of our clients – we have managed to retain our 5th place in Africa from 2011, now also rated as 36th overall in Europe, Middle East and Africa. A great achievement, considering there were only 7 African companies who made the cut, Numata being one of them.”

The MSPmentor 50 EMEA Edition is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2011. The MSPmentor 50 EMEA Edition recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.

“Nine Lives Media and MSPmentor congratulate Numata Business IT for its leadership position within the EMEA market,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “While many IT resellers across EMEA cling to break-fix business models, the EMEA 50 list identifies true market leaders among IT service providers.”

“MSPs on this year’s EMEA 50 list lifted their annual recurring revenues a healthy 7 percent to US$163 million, an impressive mark considering the economic uncertainty facing the EMEA region,” said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of Nine Lives Media. “Those 50 MSPs are now managing 164,000 desktop and mobile devices for customers, up nearly 50 percent from 2010.”
