Codestone Group has once again clinched the prestigious title of one of the top Managed IT companies in the country, securing the award for the second consecutive year.
This recognition adds another feather to the cap of the company’s Cloud and Managed Services business line, further accentuating the Group’s ever-expanding collection of industry accolades.
Among Codestone’s impressive list of achievements are being named the #1 EMEA/UK Partner of SAP Business One & Business ByDesign, receiving the SAP Partner Excellence in New Business EMEA North, attaining Microsoft Gold Partner status with 7 Gold and 4 Silver accreditations, and earning Specialist Partner Designations for Azure Infrastructure and Modern Work. Additionally, Codestone holds the esteemed position of CCH Tagetik’s first Global Platinum Partner and has received the Oxfordshire County Council Gold Award for Power BI.
The competition for this recognition was fierce, with participation open to thousands of UK-based Value-Added Resellers (VARs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), and Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs). Unlike traditional assessments based solely on sales volume or revenue, contenders for this award had to demonstrate excellence in managing an IT business comprehensively.
The entry process was anything but ordinary, with entrants subjected to evaluation in twelve crucial areas of business, measuring best practices through nearly two hundred questions crafted with input from over 30 seasoned business coaches intimately familiar with the IT industry.
No stone was left unturned, with the evaluated key business areas including everything from vision and strategy, to help desk support, customer satisfaction and financial management. This rigorous assessment, scored by a sophisticated Business Intelligence AI algorithm, benefited from fine-tuning with data inputs from thousands of past evaluations. Consequently, the system effectively benchmarks and scores the best business practices of each applicant with a high degree of precision.
“Being named an industry leader for our Managed Services business two years in a row is incredibly exciting. At Codestone, our focus on customers is paramount, and our team is all about delivering a personalised experience in the B2B world. As we bask in this success, we’re gearing up for an even better 2024, with big plans to take our customer service excellence to new heights. It’s not just about what we’ve achieved; it’s about where we’re headed.”
