CodeBlue, CNS beat Aussie competition

12 Dec 14

New Zealand’s CodeBlue has beaten out the Aussie competition to claim the top award as Kaseya ANZ MSP Partner of the Year for 2014.

Computer and Network Solutions (CNS) took out Innovation Partner of the Year for the IT management vendor, winning the award jointly with Australia’s centreRED IT.

CodeBlue earned the award ‘in recognition of its outstanding service commitment’, Kaseya says.

Kellie Hackney, Kaseya’s APAC director of channels, says many of Kaseya’s leading MSP partners are operating in Australia and New Zealand, where the rapid adoption of cloud and mobile platforms presents complex challenges for organisations demanding sophisticated solutions.

“Our annual MSP Partner awards are an opportunity to recognise the incredible depth of skill and experience of these companies and the success that they’ve achieved in growing their business and that of their customers,” Hackney says.

“It is great to have valuable partners like these who further strengthen the message about Kaseya’s leading innovations in the IT management market.”

Ken Davis, CodeBlue co-founder and managing director, says the company’s goal has always been to give mid-sized New Zealand companies ‘big company’ IT services without the enterprise price tag.

He says Kaseya has been ‘a critically important enabler’ in achieving that goal.

“Kaseya has been a consistent innovator developing solutions that meet the evolving needs of our business,” Davis says.

“We make big bets on Kaseya and our investment continues to be rewarded by CodeBlue’s reputation for the highest customer satisfaction metrics in our industry.”

Australia’s Datacom was named Kaseya 2014 Emerging Partner of the Year, following on from Kaseya’s success in winning the tender for the MSP’s cloud monitoring platform in June.
