Annual MSP 501 Identifies Best-in-Class Global MSP Businesses

BEAR Technologies is recognized among the world's most elite MSP's.


AUGUST 11, 2020: BEAR Technologies, a Texas-based Managed Service Provider, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers in the prestigious 2020 annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.

In the 13 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants, and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.

Channel Futures is pleased to name BEAR Technologies to the 2020 MSP 501 and has awarded BEAR with a position of #222 globally.

"The team at BEAR was pleasantly surprised to be recognized as one of the top MSP’s in the world," Yogi Yeager, President, BEAR Technologies. "When I started BEAR in 1993, the reason was to provide a best-in-class IT experience to the companies we serve. So, it is really rewarding to have reached this elite level of recognition on a worldwide stage”

“For the third year running, the applicant pool for the annual MSP 501 has grown year-over-year, making this year’s list the most competitive in the survey’s history,” says Kris Blackmon, Senior Content Director at Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “The MSP 501 leveraged judgement methodology brand-new in 2020 to drill down into not just what makes a big managed service provider, but what makes a great managed service provider. The 2020 winners are truly the best examples of innovation, business acumen and strategic savvy on the planet. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2020 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”

Ten MSP 501 special award winners will be recognized at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Virtual: Digital Events for the Modern Channel on September 8 – 10. Nominations for these special awards, including Digital Innovator of the Year, Executive of the Year, and the Newcomer Award, were included in the MSP 501 application, and all candidates were encouraged to submit for them.
