June 26, 2017   //   News

SWC Technology Partners was named by Redmond Channel Partner magazine to the RCP 200, a list of the top 200 Microsoft partners in the United States.

“SWC stood out among Microsoft partners for a broad array of offerings that leverage the cloud to help mid-market clients disrupt their industries,” said Scott Bekker, editor in chief of Redmond Channel Partner magazine, the leading channel publication for the Microsoft partner community. “Additionally, SWC’s tight executive relationships with Microsoft mean the company has exceptional access to Microsoft technologies, roadmaps and programs, allowing them to deliver the best possible solutions to their customers. Both of those factors made SWC a clear choice for the 2nd annual RCP 200 list.”

To compile the 2017 RCP 200 list, the Redmond Channel Partner relied on 12 years’ experience as an independent magazine focused on the Microsoft channel community. They researched the magazine’s archives, Microsoft award lists, invitation-only Microsoft partner programs and other sources to find 200 U.S.-based companies with a reputation for providing sterling services.

“It’s extremely exciting to be recognized as one of the top IT solution partners in the country,” said Ric Opal, Sr. Director of Client Engagement at SWC. “Technology is evolving and disrupting business at an unprecedented pace, and we work very hard with our client partners to align their challenges with the right IT solutions. Determining the proper cloud fit for each customer and roadmapping high value/low risk solutions is a critical success factor for our clients. Our model of driving specific and measurable cloud value is what sets us apart from other providers. We’re thrilled to be recognized by RCP.”

With Microsoft’s product list running into the hundreds and partner providers in the tens of thousands in the United States alone, it can be hard to identify quality. SWC was recognized for standing out from the rest. SWC’s diverse IT solutions focus client’s and unique model of solving their client partners’ business problems with customized and innovative technology.

“SWC’s proven methods to continuously identify opportunities to harness technology to provide business value have made them a standout Microsoft Partner. In particular, SWC has demonstrated expertise in navigating the disruptive nature of emerging cloud technologies, customized for clients in the mid-market. Their ability to provide customers not only with strategy, but a unified partner to deliver across multiple solution areas is why we chose to recognize SWC on our 2nd annual RCP 200.”

“The truly great Microsoft partners combine strong technical expertise with a sophisticated understanding of their customers’ business requirements to deliver great solutions,” said Bekker continued. “The companies that made our 2nd annual RCP 200 list demonstrated those qualities.”

Companies in the RCP 200 range from those partners who produce sizable revenues in Microsoft practices to companies with very specialized practices to partner companies with great connections to Microsoft’s internal product experts.
