For the fourth consecutive year, Avenir IT has won a top spot among Canada's 50 Best Managed IT Companies. The award's courtesy of ChannelNext and TechnoPlanet looked very different this year, with the gala trading in its black-tie for a scaled down online streaming event due to Covid-19 restrictions. Still, the hosts and winners were happy to be congratulated and accept their awards via satellite.
What makes a Best Managed Company?
The Award is always one of pride for a Managed Services Provider, as over 1000 Canadian companies were assessed. The top 50 is no easy feat, with judging based on 200 questions over 12 different areas of business operations. From business vision and management practices, thru sales and marketing, financing, and human resources, help desk and support efficiencies all the way to the most important factor of employee and customer satisfaction.
On top of this, each applicant was reviewed in several public areas such as the strength of their digital presence including their website, social media, search engine results and marketing campaigns. Charity, community work, customer testimonials, awards and certification levels will also be reviewed. That is quite the extensive list and winners were decided by the top 50 scores overall.
"The companies that make it to this ranking are large and small, but they always share one trait: a tireless focus on their people."
Award a testament to team dedication

"Being recognized in Canada’s Top 50 Best Managed IT Companies is especially meaningful this year, as our team has worked tirelessly to keep our client’s businesses up and running remotely without interruption during this pandemic." Says CEO Mathieu Manaigre, "Our team have risen to the challenge day after day, and this award is truly a testament to their hard work and dedication."
"Four wins in a row is an incredible honour. Thank you to ChannelNext and TechnoPlanet, but mostly thank you to our amazing team, you made this possible."
