Posted on

Bethesda, Maryland – October 10, 2022 – The ASCII Group, a large membership-based community of independent North American MSPs, MSSPs and Solution Providers, is pleased to announce the recipients of its annual ASCII Cup celebration, with awards presented to the ASCII Cup winner and Top 10 Vendors of 2022. This year, the Cup was awarded at the ASCII Success Summit on October 7 in Dallas, Texas.

For nearly 40 years The ASCII Group has provided programs, services, and resources for MSPs to better run their IT businesses. The ASCII Cup is a commemoration of the dedication that technology vendor partners deliver to ASCII membership. The awards are presented each fall to technology companies that are committed to innovation and channel goodwill in addition to helping ASCII members grow their IT businesses. The winners are voted upon by ASCII members at regional events.

Each ASCII Success Summit in 2022 allowed attendees to vote for vendors in thirteen distinct categories: Best Overall Presentation; Best Partner Incentives; Best Education; Best Keynote Presentation; Most Innovative Solution; Best Market Opportunity; Best Partner Involvement; Best Rapid Pitch; Best Channel Program; Best Revenue Generator; Best Partner Support; Best New Solution; Best in Show.

The winners at each event are selected based on the total number of votes by the MSPs and solution providers in attendance; at the end of the Summits, the winner of The ASCII Cup is determined by tabulating the results of all submitted ballots.

The ASCII Group is pleased to celebrate the award recipients of this year’s ASCII Cup:
