Annual MSP 501 Identifies Best-in-Class Global MSP Businesses & Leading Trends in Managed Services
JULY 28, 2020: CISSDM has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 2020 annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
For the 13th year running, MSPs from around the globe completed an exhaustive survey and application this spring to self-report product offerings, annual total and recurring revenues, profits, revenue mix, growth opportunities and company and customer demographic information. Applicants are ranked on a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to long-term health and viability; commitment to recurring revenue; and operational efficiency.
Channel Futures is pleased to name CISSDM to the 2020 MSP 501.
“The CISSDM team is very excited and honored to be recognized as an MSP 501er for the second year in a row,” said Rob Bloedorn, VP of Sales at CISSDM. “We are still seeing many industry pivots as a result of COVID-19, but managed services are still an integral part of most customer networks. Currently, CISSDM is finding that enterprises still require field services and proactive management to operate their networks and IT management. We are happy to provide this support to our customers and are being recognized for it.”
CISSDM has operated for 12 years in June. CISSDM services over 100 enterprise customers with a wide variety of network services: building custom IPVPN networks (which evolved into SD-WAN and hybrid networks), deploying network refreshes, providing onsite field services and installations, circuit provisioning and installation, as well as VoIP services. Today, it is focused on building, deploying, and managing hybrid network services with the best of the Gartner quadrant vendors for SD-WAN Edge Infrastructure: Cisco Meraki, Cisco Viptela, CloudGenix, Fortinet, Silverpeak, and VMWare SD-WAN by Velocloud. CISSDM has the infrastructure to provide services for the full lifecycle of networks.
In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.
“For the third year running, the applicant pool for the annual MSP 501 has grown year-over-year, making this year’s list the most competitive in the survey’s history,” says Kris Blackmon, Senior Content Director at Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “The MSP 501 leveraged judgement methodology brand-new in 2020 to drill down into not just what makes a big managed service provider, but what makes a great managed service provider. The 2020 winners are truly the best examples of innovation, business acumen and strategic savvy on the planet. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2020 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”
Ten MSP 501 special award winners will be recognized at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Virtual: Digital Events for the Modern Channel on September 8 – 10. Nominations for these special awards, including Digital Innovator of the Year, Executive of the Year and the Newcomer Award, were included in the MSP 501 application, and all candidates were encouraged to submit for them.
