The MSPmentor 200 North America Edition is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2011. The MSPmentor 200 North America Edition recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered, customer devices managed, and the overall service they provide to their clietns.
“FIT (Forum Info-Tech) had a great year. We continued to build our solid managed IT business, while also building our Cloud Services division, mentioned CEO Biren Shukla. “I could not be more proud of our team and all of the hard work we have done to make it to the top 200 IT companies in North America. We will be continuing to make our way up the list!” FIT spun off a cloud services division called LevelCloud in 2011 to deliver a powerful business class cloud computing solution to its clients enabling the company to truly deliver a complete hosted solution for the small/medium business. “Much of our success is attributed to the demand for cloud services”, said Director of Business Development Adrian Francoz. “Our technical team has done a great job in developing a true Cloud solution that clients can use for their entire network. We provide so much value by allowing a business to free itself from owning and managing complex IT systems. We expect 2012 to be our biggest growth year yet.”
As LevelCloud’s demand began to rise, it was evident that FIT alone could not deliver the solution nationwide. Olivier Matime was appointed CTO of LevelCloud and began building a team focused solely on delivering complete hosted networks to the SMB market through a channel of MSP’s. “My team and I work with a group of LevelCloud partners, including FIT, to bring the LevelCloud solution to end users across North America. Today our clients’ no longer need to own and maintain servers and all the expensive licensing that goes with it, we simply deliver what they need (apps, data, e-mail) to any device, anywhere through our ultra-secure and redundant datacenters, mentioned Matime.
