Top Managed Service Provider for 2021

How We Made Our List

It may seem strange to have us create a list of our competitors, but occasionally we get asked by prospective customers: if not you, what other IT service provider in Atlanta would you choose?

Because Standard Office Systems is a technology company that prides itself on building trust and doing whatever we can to help our customers, we decided to make an annual list. 

We omitted ourselves from being included in this list to limit bias.

Top IT Service Provider Formula

To keep our metrics transparent and fair, we created a formula for determining which companies should be included in the 2021 list:


Our list consists of IT companies who are based in Atlanta. If you are looking for an MSP located in Atlanta, you don't want to settle for a local branch that is part of a larger corporation. On the surface, bigger may appear to be better, but when your network is on the line, faster is better. When an IT company is based out of places like California and New York, the speed of resolving an issue is often sacrificed. 

Years in Business

Let's face it. You wouldn't trust your network security to a start-up IT company, would you? When it comes to protecting some of your organization's most valuable assets, only businesses who have been solvent for ten (10) or more years should be considered. Otherwise, you risk the mistakes of a company still learning at the expense of your company's private data.

Company Size

This seems to contradict the previous point made about large corporations. There is such a thing as too large, however, one of the benefits of outsourcing your IT is the value of having a team of experts for less than the price of in-house IT support. You cannot achieve this if your third-party IT is a tiny company. 

Additionally, company size is a great indicator of the number of customers they serve. There is great value in working with a company that serves a variety of customers because they will continue to learn from the experience they receive through all of their clients, not just you (like in-house IT would be subjected to). 

Note: Only companies with ten (10) or more employees were included in our list.

Google Reviews

Google reviews can rarely be removed. No, they shouldn't be the only determining factor when deciding which company to choose, but if they are unable to achieve a quality customer rating, that should signal a red flag. 

When doing your research, look and see if there is a common theme with a company's reviews. If there is one poor review, without a comment, or no one else has a similar complaint, then that review may be an outlier. 

Note: Only companies with a Google Review rating of 4-stars or higher were included in our list.

Glassdoor Employee Rating

At Standard Office Systems we have a saying: Happy employees create happy customers. Ok, we may have borrowed that saying, but it is true nonetheless. If a company is filled with disgruntled employees, it is likely their customer service will also be subpar. 

The simple fact is that happy employees tend to work harder for their company because they are motivated to do so, and less turnover is an advantage when it comes to providing quality customer service. It is why we are proud to be named a Best Places to Work in Atlanta, four years running!

Note: Only companies with a Glassdoor rating of 3-stars or higher were included in our list. We recognize that Glassdoor ratings are often left by employees who are leaving a company (employment terminated or otherwise), which is why this factor in the formula is listed lowest.
