IT-Guru Named to Channel E2E Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs: 2017 Edition

Second-Annual List Identifies and Honors Top MSPs In Healthcare, Government, Financial Services, Manufacturing & More


April 27, 2017 Aurora, CO:
IT-Guru has been named to After Nines Inc.’s ChannelE2E Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs list and research. The list and research (hashtag: #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.

IT-Guru was ranked among the top vertical market MSPs with a vertical focus on Veterinary.

“I’m honored to be named to this top 100 list and to be next to the many other successful IT companies named in this year’s list” said Joseph Axne, Owner of IT-Guru. “We have had a sole marketing focus on Veterinary for the past 4 years and starting to really make traction in this this micro vertical focus in 2016. Looking forward to continued growth and moving up on this list next year”


“After Nines Inc. congratulates IT-Guru on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “MSPs across the globe are zeroing in on vertical market opportunities. Competition is intensifying. The best-of-the-best surfaced in this year’s report.”

IT-Guru is essentially an outsourced IT department for Veterinary Clinics and Hospitals. They provide a platform which gives insight into computers, networks, servers and all the technology that runs a successful veterinary practice. They assist their clients with alignment to IT-Guru’s “IT Standards of Care” built specifically for veterinary practices. Basically, assuring alignment to best practices in the managed IT industry.


IT Guru’s has powerful veterinary partnerships; and turn IT into a revenue center vs a cost center. They provide specific insight into Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to drive repeat and new business for a veterinary practice. This is done through normalization of transactions veterinary practices have with their specific clients. Showing insight into lapsing clients, compliance of preventive medicine and average transaction amounts per doctor. Essentially providing valuable business data to assist a clinic or hospital manager and owner tweak their processes and focus to increase revenue and net profits for the business.


IT-Guru is helping clinics and hospitals move to the cloud by cloud enabling their current practice management software. So instead of taking on a huge and costly project of migrating to a cloud based practice management system, they instead take existing software they already know and use and convert it securely to the cloud. This way clinics and hospitals standard operating processes would all remain the same with the same software they already know and use!


IT-Guru, which is Aurora, Colorado based (Denver Metro) is excited to be working with clinics and hospitals on a national basis now. With their “Insight and Security Essentials” platform. This simple and cost effective platform provides practice managers and owners with full insight into their technology. Giving them specific insight into their own practice, assisting them with IT Strategy and alignment to the IT-Guru’s “IT Standards of Care”. But most importantly securing the environment from all the latest threats like Ransomware that will hold hospitals and clinics hostage to their own data.
