Congratulations to all!

These are the companies that won the 2018 Reseller Choice Award for Britain’s Top 10 Cloud/SaaS Vendors! The winners were announced in London on December 13th, 2018.

Microsoft took the #1 spot.

When you win this award it means that the channel partners voted for you and your ranking was based on the actual number of votes that you received. The #1 spot got the most votes and so on…

All Vendors were encouraged to invite their partners to vote for them. The voting link was sent to them to share with their partners. Each channel partner can cast only one vote for their favorite vendor. If the channel partners did not see their favorite vendor in the nominee list, they could nominate that vendor instantly and it will also count as one vote. Channel partners can nominate any vendor that they wish so long as the vendor meets the requirements to be in the Cloud/SaaS Category, and the channel partner operates their business in the UK.

Voting closed on November 30th, 2018. We invited our entire database of over 5,000 VARs, MSPs and ITSPs from across the UK to vote. We also amplified the invitation through our local UK channel partners including Channeliser, Westcoast and our Elite 300 Mastermind Coaches. We thank them for their support.

“We wanted to understand what the UK Channel is thinking in the #1 Cloud/SaaS category. The UK partners actually voted for 62 vendors in this category. It is interesting as we compare which Cloud/SaaS vendors that channel partners rank in other countries. In 2019, we will expand to many more categories.”

A big Thank-You to all the UK channel partners who took a minute to cast their vote!

Air IT won a bottle of Dom Perignon as our thank-you for voting prize draw. They also won a Britain’s 50 Best Managed IT Companies Award!

Without your vote, we cannot deliver your message to the vendors. When you vote, you get heard. When you don’t, others get heard. It is one easy way to thank the vendors you like while sending a strong message to the others to improve their support for you next year. Please vote again in 2019!
#1 Microsoft (Award accepted by Westcoast)

#2 Amazon Web Services

#3 HPE

#6 Connectwise

#7 VEEAM

#10 DATTO

For next year, vendors can participate by simply inviting their partners to vote for them! Please watch for the next Britain’s Reseller Choice Award’s event date in London for December 2019. We will be handing out over 30 awards in a wider range of categories in addition to the top 10 Cloud/SaaS Vendors (which will also expand to top 50). It is going to be a great evening to network with your industry peers as well as the directors of Britain’s 50 Best Managed IT Companies. It will also be our 4th anniversary!
