ASP Announces 2018 Top Ten Best Support Websites Winners
The Association of Support Professionals today announced this year’s Top Ten Best Web Support sites. This competition celebrated it’s 20thyear in 2018. Each year companies compete in three categories by company size. Large companies are over $1 billion in total annual corporate revenues; medium sized companies are over $100 million and under $1 billion; and small companies are under $100 million. So, companies compete against peer sized competitors. Each entry is judged by at least 5 independent judges in 25 different categories. Each entry receives a custom report for their particular site, with their average scores compared with scores in their size group. The report also features comments by the judges including the three most important areas to improve and suggestions on how to implement those improvements. This year’s winners are listed below in alphabetical order. ASP does not list rankings.
Medium Sized Companies
Ivanti (Joins Hall of Fame)
Ivanti joins our Hall of Fame winners who have each won four or more times including Cisco, Dell Software (originally listed as Dell), Juniper Networks, Intel Security (formerly McAfee), Microsoft, and Red Hat.
An approximately 135-page report is published each year with essays for each winner along with average scores in each company size group in all 25 categories that were scored; a list of judges, trends, and much more. The report is free to all ASP members and competitors in the Top Ten contest. It can be purchased for $360 from our website at www.asponline.com or you can become a member for only $180 for a year and get all of our reports. For more information about the 25 categories that were rated, go to our site and click on AWARDS, then choose Scoring Criteria.
ASP executive director, Al Hahn commented; “This competition is always tough, and this year was no exception. Although we do not publish rankings, we did note that the small company winner, Republic Wireless, scored better than some of the medium and large sized companies in this year’s contest. This has only happened once before in our 20-year history. It is quite an accomplishment considering the differences in resources available to a small company.”
