2. Canada’s 50 Best Managed IT Companies Awards!

For the first time ever, VARs, MSPs and ITSPs will be recognized for the way they run their companies. Basically they take a powerful best-practice business assessment test and if they score high-enough, then they get an award. It’s THE Award that they want to win because everyone wants to do business with the very best managed companies and it is also a fantastic recognition for all their employees!

Note to Vendors and Distributors:

  1. Invite your channel partners to take the best practice business assessment test. It’s FREE! Send them this link to learn more and take the test!

Plan to attend to meet this elite group of channel partners on February 2, 2017. Ask about reserving an exclusive dinner table or other sponsorship opportunities!

“Wouldn’t it be great for you to know that some of the Best Managed IT Companies are your channel partners? Time to find out?”

Note to Canadian VARs, MSPs and ITSPs:

  1. You may take this test at anytime that you wish, but if you would like to be considered for this 2016 award, then complete the best practice business assessment test before December 31st, 2016 at Best Managed IT Companies! (Even if you do not score high-enough to win an award, you will get a free report outlining your strengths and weaknesses. You can always improve for next year while building a bigger, better and stronger business. Benchmark your best business practices year over year!)
  2. Plan on attending on February 2, 2017 this fantastic industry networking and fun event with your colleagues. It will be a great 5-star dinner! Mark your calendar and reserve your ticket.

  3. During the same ceremony, we will be inviting some vendors and distributors to hand out ONE special “Partner Of The Year” award.
