07 Jul 14

Kaseya, a provider of cloud-based IT management software, has awarded its Managed Services Partner (MSP) of the Year accolade to New Zealand’s CodeBlue.

Kaseya selected CodeBlue due to their "outstanding ability" to deploy managed services strategies and deliver consistent leadership in the market through the adoption of the company's technologies.

“We see CodeBlue as a consistent market leader,” says Dermot McCann, Kaseya’s managing director Australia and New Zealand.

“In the past we’ve presented this award to recognise a particular level of innovation in the application of Kaseya solutions.

"While that is also the case with this year’s winner, the award this year is also in recognition of CodeBlue’s consistent excellence over time.”

A testament to their leadership in the market, CodeBlue was one of the first IT managed services providers in the region to partner with Kaseya and today is now one of the largest partners in the region.

With an IT management platform and developments in the Microsoft Office365 management and Cloud Management space, Kaseya now has in excess of 700 MSP and mid-market IT customers across Australia and New Zealand.

“Ten years ago CodeBlue set out to give mid-sized New Zealand companies ‘big company’ IT services at a price they could afford,” adds Ken Davis, co-founder and managing director, CodeBlue.

“Our market leadership position today reflects our success in delivering on that objective and Kaseya has been a key enabler in our journey.

"Kaseya has continued to develop its products and keep pace with the evolution of our business. We bet heavily on Kaseya and our investment continues to be rewarded by CodeBlue’s reputation for the highest customer satisfaction metrics in our industry.”
