The ASCII Group wrapped up its year-long Success Summit multi-city tour with the annual ASCII Cup celebration in Dallas on October 7, with Solutions Granted winning the coveted 2022 ASCII Cup Vendor of the Year. The awards, held at the conclusion of the final two-day conference of this year, also honored the Top 10 Vendors of 2022. 

The ASCII Group is a large membership-based community of independent North American MSPs, MSSPs, and solution providers. The annual 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 13 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, and 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.
