“We’re very humbled to be named among other incredible MSPs and are looking forward to the conversations tonight and into the future,” said Leith.

“These talks will be critical as the channel evolves. We’ve got to work together to meet our reseller partners’ needs. They’re being challenged to help curate and simplify effective digital solutions for small and medium businesses, and they need a full stack of cloud solutions and fulfillment help to overcome it. Collaboration will be king.”

Vendasta works with channel partners to provide an expansive marketing and business solution suites complete with in-house Marketing Services fulfillment. This allows MSPs to outsource or offload portions of their service work while adopting new retention-driving solutions. The company was among 10 MSPs which received special awards Tuesday evening.

“[These companies] stand as examples of the creativity, business agility, and willingness to take risks that define the modern channel, and the Channel Futures team extends our heartfelt congratulations to these 10 innovative companies,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director for Channel Partners and Channel Futures, and lead of the MSP 501 program. “The evolution of the managed services market is reflected in the changing nature of the MSP 501 winners over the years, and each and every winner from the past 12 years deserves the highest praise and is awarded inclusion in the exclusive Channel Futures 501er Community peer organization.”
