NextGen 101 : MSP 501 list

Present Ranked Among Elite Managed Service Providers on Inaugural NextGen 101 List


The NextGen 101 List Honors Partners Building MSP Practices

March 3, 2021: Present has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious new 2020 Channel Futures NextGen 101 rankings.

The NextGen 101, an MSP 501 list, features resellers, system integrators, consultants and other partners with recurring revenues from business models that are diversified beyond managed or cloud services.


The NextGen 101 recognizes diversified partners with growing MSP practices and annual recurring revenues under 20% of total revenue. These partners offer managed services, but they’re also resellers, system integrators and shops that do project work. These diversified shops deserve to be recognized for what they are in their own list, not just grouped together with pure-play MSPs.


Channel Futures is pleased to name Present to the NextGen 101.

“We are honored to feature on the NextGen 101 list, and especially to support our customers in the support and daily maintenance of their IT”, said Marc Beaulieu, President and Founder of Present. “Adopting our managed services also means giving yourself peace of mind. And that’s what we do for our clients, we allow them to focus on strategic projects that have real value to their businesses, while we fully or partially manage their IT. “


Channel Partners and Channel Futures always wants to ensure that their partner communities are being recognized for what they do best and are therefore creating programs targeted toward their needs. The Nextgen 101 represents that effort.

“The NextGen 101 is designed specifically to honor partners dedicating resources to building out their practices — all while maintaining the integrity of their core businesses,” said Allison Francis, editor and content producer at Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “Maybe these partners will become the MSP powerhouses of the future. Maybe they’ll continue to expand their managed services capabilities while also devoting resources to core competencies. Or maybe they’ll become a new kind of hybrid partner that isn’t yet even on our radar. We can’t wait to see what these companies will do next, and we’re excited to honor them in a list of their very own.”
