The submission deadline for MSP 501 applications is fast approaching. The survey, the most comprehensive IT ranking list in the channel, closes at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 31.
Service offerings are also diverse, ranging from servicing operating systems to mobility to the internet of things (IoT). Customers that applicants serve also run the gamut, coming from the smallest of businesses as well as enterprise-level companies with operations in verticals as diverse as professional services, manufacturing, finance and not-for-profit associations.
If you worry your MSP is too small to qualify, keep our Small Business Edition in mind. The 501 represents partners from as small as one- or two-person shops, so remember trajectory, growth and diversity of services are taken into heavy consideration when compiling data.
