Managed Solution was established in 2002, emerging as San Diego’s 40 fastest growing companies and ranked 27th as fastest growing IT company in the Southern California region. It is recognized as the top 10 National Cloud Service Providers. Optimizing their existing resources, clients can put more focus on strategic IT projects while, simultaneously, Managed Solution can provide quality support through an award winning US based, Southern California Help Desk. It is a versatile player, having a manpower that holds Microsoft Gold competencies in Server Platform, Communications, Devices and Deployment, Management and Virtualization, Midmarket Solution Provider and Silver in Messaging, Identity and Access, OEM and hosting.
Recognizing the need for consultative IT services and with little funds, Sean Ferrel, Founder and CEO of Managed Solution, and his loyal band of merry men founded the company in 2002 right after Sean had graduated from the University of San Diego. Sean’s ‘magic’ was evident from the very beginning as in 3 years the company was showered in accolades!
Full Fledged Consulting Assistance
With experience in TEKsystems, and an intention of giving consulting assistance on an hourly basis, Sean based the services on Unified Communications, Cloud Computing, and Mobile workspace. Some mentions of the company are in ‘San Diego Business Journal’s list of Fastest Growing Private Companies’ for 3 consecutive years and in the ‘2010 CRN Fast Growth List’. Some partnerships with Microsoft Solution vendors include Microsoft Managed Gold Partner, Cisco Silver Partner, Riverbed Certified Partner, Frontline Partner, and a Fortinet Certified Security Partner. Sean is a featured speaker in many live seminars and teleconferences and an active member of many outside organizations like Vistage International, American Institute of Technology Professionals, Just In Time for Foster Youth, and USD Alumni Board.
“Further than most but better than the rest”
Sean stresses that the firm is so much more than just outsourced IT. He says, “No other MSP can come close to the investments we make in our customers, meaning more resources, more productivity and an awesome ROI for customers when they choose Managed Solution” Regarding challenges in the near future, “The largest threat to our business over the next three years will be resourcing and our ability to hire, retain and drive great culture in our business.” The firm believes in nurturing goodwill by investing both financially and ethically in society. The main thing is organically growing solution service offerings and an outstanding client support. The vision of Managed Solution seems to be continuous improvement. Sean explains, “Our mission is simple yet complete, we bring together a large pool of amazing individuals who share the same core value internally with our teams as well as our customers.”
Best as a managed service provider
Since Cloud workload has been more prevalent in the waters of big fish like Microsoft, Google, and Amazon, these fish will provide a platform for Managed Services providers to thrive. Sean stresses, “The key to success will understand ongoing utility cost models that provide forward thinking strategies for businesses of the future.
We are currently building a channel partnership with many MSP’s and other vendors nationally to provide more of a group purchasing organization type look and feel for our customers.”
According to Sean, looking towards Hybrid and Total Cloud Business Solutions, today, Managed Solution sees the dawn of a very bright Sun indeed!
