2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 Application

Welcome to the 6th annual CRN MSP500 survey. The MSP500 is CRN's annual recognition of top MSPs in North America. The results will be published on CRN.com in February 2019.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN: We use a variety of metrics to determine MSP500 placement. Based on your responses in this application, your company's placement on the MSP500 will fall into one of three categories: 

  • Pioneer 250 - Pure-play MSPs whose managed service offerings represent the company's primary business model/revenue source.
  • Elite 150 - VARs & Solution Providers serving mainly Mid-sized/Enterprise clients who have successfully established a large-scale managed services portfolio.
  • Managed Security 100 - MSPs with a strong managed security service offering (examples include: managed firewalls, intrusion detection, & general security management) as a major part of their overall business.


This short questionnaire should only take 10 - 15 minutes to complete. Please note: responses related to revenue breakdowns and other company detailed information will NOT be published; they are used to verify award qualification only.

The deadline for submission is January 18th at 5PM EST
