Managed IT and Communications provider, Air-IT have won the Managed Service Solution of the Year Award at the IT Europa European IT & Software Excellence Awards, recognising their expertise in managed backup and business continuity solutions.
Based on their use of StorageCraft backup and disaster recovery technologies for which they have Platinum Partner status, the award showcases their excellence in the support of IT infrastructure, and provision of hosted or Cloud based IT services opposed to on premise based solutions.
With many decades of experience in IT between them, the judges were looking for the number one company who met the customer needs and had a proven record of how service level agreements were not only monitored but guaranteed.
John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa and head of the judge’s panel said: “Not only did we have a record number of entries and votes from the industry, but the quality was even higher than previous years and confirms our view that Europe has entered a new era of IT confidence. It is up to us as an industry to take these ideas out to the market, to show the general media, politicians and governments that the industry is not all about security threats and scare stories, but regularly delivers great productivity gains to ordinary businesses and people. The evidence is in the projects that we have highlighted with our selection of finalists and winners.”
Now in their ninth year, the awards are highly recognised within the ICT industryttracted more than 500 entries representing 28 countries across Europe. Major technology firms including Microsoft, Dell-EMC, Amazon Web Services and Cisco were named amongst winners, demonstrating the high standards East Midlands based Air-IT were competing at.
Air-IT’s Managing Director James Healey said: “We’re extremely proud to pick up the Managed Service Solution of the Year Award. IT Europa is a leading name within our industry, and the standard of these awards is always incredibly high.

Once again, the company has been shortlisted for its capabilities as a StorageCraft Platinum Partner, in the Resilience in Infrastructure and IT Service Delivery category. This marks further international recognition for the firm, and reinforces their position as a current world ranking Managed Services Provider.
