Codestone Group has recently been named one of the best Managed IT companies in the country.
This is a welcome award to the company’s Cloud and Managed Services business line and compliments the Group’s growing roster of industry awards, including: #1 EMEA/UK Partner of SAP Business One & Business ByDesign, SAP Partner Excellence in New Business EMEA North, Microsoft Gold Partner status with 7 Gold and 4 Silver accreditations and Specialist Partner Designations for Azure Infrastructure and Modern Work, CCH Tagetik’s first Global Platinum Partner and the Oxfordshire County Council Gold Award for Power BI.
Competition was high, with entry open to thousands of UK-based Value Added Resellers (VARs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs), and rather than being judged typically on sales volume or revenue, the winners had to prove they are the best of the best when it comes to actually running an IT business end to end.
This wasn’t an ordinary entry process. Entrants were evaluated in twelve key areas of business to measure best practices, answering almost two-hundred questions developed with the input of over 30 professional business coaches who completely understand the IT Industry.

1. Business Vision and Strategy 2. Human Resources 3. Sales Process
4. Marketing Process 5. Help Desk Support 6. Business Operation Processes
7. Supplier Strategy 8. Product Strategy 9. Intellectual Property
10. Financial Management 11. Leadership and Management 12. Customer Satisfaction
This comprehensive assessment, scored by a powerful Business Intelligence AI algorithm, has been fine-tuned with data inputs from thousands of past assessments. As such, the systems can benchmark and score the best business practices of every applicant to a very high degree.
Codestone Group was delighted to hear they had ranked in the Top 50 benchmark group, crowning them award winners, and confirming the business is one of the finest in the MSP field.
Managed Services Director, Pete Campbell travelled to the Awards Gala at Butchers Hall in London to collect the award on behalf of the Group. He highlighted during the award ceremony, “It’s fantastic for our Managed Services business to be recognised as an industry-leader. Codestone has always been customer focused, and the team are very passionate about delivering a personal experience in a B2B environment. The business vision, strategy and processes are all aligned to support this, and it’s clearly paying off.”
