On Your Mark … The Annual MSP 501 Survey Is Preparing for 2019 Launch
In just a couple of weeks, Channel Futures and its sister channel news site, Channel Partners, will open the 2019 MSP 501 survey for applications. The survey is the IT channel’s largest and most comprehensive ranking of leading managed service providers around the globe. MSPs worldwide will throw their hats into the ring to see where they rank among the top 501 managed service providers.
Like last year, this year’s 501 will include a short, supplementary application for special awards such as the Vanguard Award for the company that demonstrates thought leadership in terms of digital transformation; the Lifetime Achievement Award for an executive who has demonstrated commitment, perseverance, creativity and ingenuity over an entire career; the Newcomer Award, bestowed upon a first-time MSP 501er that is shaking things up; and more.
The 501 uses unique data analysis that weighs revenue streams according to how forward-thinking the applicant’s business strategy is and how well it anticipates trends in the fast-moving channel ecosystem. Data will be collected, aggregated and analyzed by the Channel Futures and Channel Partners team, with additional commentary coming from analysts and channel experts.
As in previous years, applicants will be required to provide 2018 financial results and revenue verification in the form of a statement from a certified financial professional.
The MSP 501 will open for applications on March 1, so stay tuned to Channel Futures for updates, FAQs and information on the survey. You can subscribe to the MSP 501 newsletter, which provides information on the 501 as well as the latest trends in the MSP world, on the MSP 501 homepage.
