Managed Sales Pros Celebrates Their First ChannelProSMB Readers Choice Award

Managed Sales Pros, the I.T. channels’ premiere sales development partner, today announced that ChannelProSMB has named Managed Sales Pros as a 2020 Reader’s Choice Award winner in the Best Marketing Vendor category.

Readers of ChannelPro-SMB Magazine and the ChannelPro Network were encouraged to cast their votes in the IT channel’s only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes via the publication’s website for the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations with the most SMB- and partner-friendly solutions, services, or programs in the channel today. For each of the 50 categories, readers were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations.

The multiple-choice survey, which provided space for write-in responses, was fielded from March to May 2020 and drew participation from more than 1,500 channel VARs, MSPs, integrators, system builders, and IT consultants. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.

“We are really proud of this win,” said Carrie Simpson, CEO of Managed Sales Pros. “It came at a time when our team absolutely needed to be recognized for their hard work! Their effort and dedication in supporting our clients through one of the most challenging times in our company history has not gone unnoticed.  To be able to share with them that not only did their team notice their achievements this year, but the entire channel noticed – that was a great moment for the team. “

Managed Sales Pros shares their “Best Marketing Vendor” category win with (Gold) and Hubspot (Silver).  Managed Sales Pros assists I.T. companies in the selection, set up and customization of CRM solutions for outbound sales prospecting, including both of these platforms.

Tracie Orisko, President of Managed Sales Pros, and the leader responsible for building and managing an award winning call center was excited to hear about the win. “We’re grateful to our clients for taking the time to vote for us – and if you read through the other award winners you’ll find a lot of  Managed Sales Pros clients listed right there beside us!  We’re in great company — sharing the spotlight with and Hubspot is pretty flattering for a company our size!”

“I do not think the channel has ever experienced a year like this one. The pandemic and its aftereffects have roiled the economy and our businesses, yet channel partners have responded by making adjustments on the fly to keep their staffs and customers safe and productive,” says Michael Siggins, president and publisher of ChannelPro-SMB and the ChannelPro Network. “Now more than ever, our readers rely on partnerships with vendors, distributors, and professional associations to help them stay competitive and grow their bottom line.
