Ingram Micro Partner Award 2020 logo

Rookie Partner of the Year

Ingram Micro Cloud

MRE Consulting was recognized as the Cloud Rookie Partner of the Year for North America at this year’s Ingram Micro Cloud Summit: The Digital Sessions.

The award recognizes a rookie partner as a firm that has expanded its partnership with Ingram Micro Cloud to achieve outstanding growth in customer base and revenue and emerges as a breakthrough success in 2019.

For Managed Services clients, MRE leverages Audix Insights for regular audits and provides recommendations on how clients can optimize their investments. This has been particularly helpful and appreciated during the current environment. “Many companies are unexpectedly supporting a remote workforce, which drastically changes their application and infrastructure needs,” Neikirk said. “MRE helps clients fine tune their Microsoft investment while optimizing their spend. With many clients seeking scalability and business continuity in their infrastructure, a key MRE strategy in 2020 is helping customers migrate their on-premise assets to the cloud while growing their Ingram Micro Partnership.”

“I am very proud of our team at MRE. This recognition acknowledges all of the hard work we have put into helping our customers. We prioritize right sizing and being good stewards. This means making sure we understand the customer’s need and working toward setting a competitive price and helping them manage their new investment going forward.”
