With hundreds of thousands of Microsoft partners worldwide, and somewhere around 100,000 in the United States, it can be difficult for customers to figure out who are the best.
The Microsoft Pinpoint
tool is helpful for customers who come to it with a specific set of requirements and a tight geographic focus. But for diplomatic and other reasons, Microsoft doesn’t go around labeling its strongest partners. The company toyed with a good-better-best set of labels when designing the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN), but abandoned the concept before rolling out the MPN. Even designations like the Microsoft National Solution Provider (NSP) list are kept fairly close to the vest.
Enter the RCP
200 list. We’ve scoured various sources for 200 of the strongest Microsoft solution providers in the United States. We looked at recent NSP designations, previous members of the now-defunct Microsoft National Systems Integrator program, Microsoft award winners at various levels and our own contact lists and archives for great companies we’ve covered over the last 11 years at RCP
This is a qualitative list, which is why it’s organized alphabetically. Some of these partners produce massive revenues in Microsoft practices that reach across Microsoft’s technology stack. Others are much smaller businesses with very deep technology expertise or with extremely strong access within Microsoft, giving them an outsized ability to provide powerful solutions for customers.
A note on geography: We’ve categorized the companies as having a presence in the East, Central, West, National or International. That’s based on office locations for those customers who still like to know they can get that face-to-face meeting on short notice. It must be said that with cloud solutions, many of these partners are running substantial national and even international businesses from as few as one physical location.
All of the companies here have demonstrated a laser focus on Microsoft technology and a strong commitment to providing great value in the thoughtfully tailored solutions they build for their customers. [Full list and source article here]
