This is the time and the place where the IT industry comes together to recognize the country’s best managed VARs, MSPs and ITSPs! Why is this award very different from any other award for channel partners? Well, to earn one of Canada’s “50 Best Managed IT Companies” Awards, the VAR, MSP or ITSP must have successfully completed a test and score high enough to be in the top 50.

Simply complete a best business practice assessment test (bestmanageditcompanies.com) with over 200 questions in every area of business operations including, business vision, strategy, leadership, management, sales process, marketing, finance, operations, help desk/support, product, supplier and customer satisfaction.

Every year, applicants will be able to retake the test and compare year over year as well as benchmark to their peers!

The awards is just the “icing on the cake”! Winning this award will be helpful to the business in many ways. Everyone want to do business with and work for well managed companies!

We look forward to recognizing the 50 companies with the highest scores and hand them the award. There is no specific ranking. A company is either one of “50 Best Managed IT Companies” or not (Note: being one of the 50 Best Managed IT Companies has nothing to do with sales volume!)

All applicants are invited to our “Canada's 50 Best Managed IT Companies” Gala Dinner on February 1st, 2018. One Free ticket for each of the 50 winners.  If you are not one of the 50 Best Managed IT Companies you can still attend but you need to purchase a ticket.
