Hello to all of our 501 hopefuls! As you may have realized by now, we have pushed the date for the 2020 MSP 501 applications. Entries will now open Monday, March 9, which coincides with the first day of the Channel Partners Conference and Expo in Las Vegas.

As we’ve mentioned previously, we have some exciting new judging criteria and a new methodology this year to judge applicants based on market trends and business best practices, so we wanted to make sure that we build out the functionality in a way that makes it as easy and accurate as possible to gauge all of that.

By launching the the 2020 MSP501 application at #CPExpo, we hope to highlight what both the 501 list and event are all about.

Our 2020 MSP 501 list will look much different than it did in 2019. We’re doing a deeper dive into recurring revenue streams, measuring revenue per employee and customer churn to assess operational efficiency, and looking at profit margins to gauge the health of the balance sheets. To hear a more in-depth explanation, check out our “So You Wanna be a 501er?” webinar.

The MSP 501 has grown from a competitive ranking list into a full-fledged community, complete with targeted market intelligence reports to help you benchmark your company against your competitors; an ongoing MSP Educational Series with industry experts sharing their knowledge; and our annual MSP 501 Awards Gala held every year at Channel Partners Evolution in the fall.

Applications for the 2020 MSP 501 will run through May 31. Stay tuned to the MSP 501 page on the Channel Futures site for updates. For questions, email [email protected].

We are so excited and can’t wait to see your submission come through this year. Best of luck to all of our applicants!
