Wi-Fi NOW Recognizes KodaCloud in the “Best New Startup” Category
October 19, 2016 — CAMPBELL, Calif. — KodaCloud Inc., the first company to offer enterprise customers with Cloud Service Wi-Fi that’s powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), today announced that the company has received MSPAlliance’s coveted “Best Cloud Solution” award for its innovative AI-Powered Cloud Service Wi-Fi for Managed Service Providers (MSP) and their enterprise customers. MSPAlliance and MSPWorld events are recognized worldwide as the premier gathering place for cloud and Managed Service Providers. This award recognizes technology-enabling companies that have demonstrated consistent efforts to advance the cause of managed service providers across the globe by providing cutting edge technologies and solutions. KodaCloud has also been shortlisted by Wi-Fi NOW for the “Best New Startup” award at its upcoming International Expo and Conference taking place in London, October 25-27.
“As a relative newcomer to the space, we were happy to see KodaCloud recognized by MSPWorld attendees for their unique cloud solution,” said Charles Weaver, CEO of MSPAlliance. “Without companies such as KodaCloud, the MSP community throughout the world would not be able to deliver their solutions and services effectively. We created the MSPWorld Cup Awards so that the MSP community could more easily identify companies such as KodaCloud, for having the best enabling technology in their respective fields.”
Comprised of more than 30,000 member companies, MSPAlliance is committed to increasing the reliability and dependability of managed mission-critical IT services.
KodaCloud’s service consists of a network of Wi-Fi Access Points (AP) that are shipped directly to customer location(s), without the need for a customer to buy equipment, or a partner to manage an inventory or shipments. With the use of a web-based dashboard, or the use of a smartphone app, a customer or partner can install and activate a Wi-Fi business network in minutes with AP-to-cloud activation using existing LAN and Internet.
“KodaCloud surprised the industry with its unique approach with AI, Cloud and Wi-Fi,” said Claus Hetting, CEO of Wi-Fi NOW. “The best Startup award honors Wi-Fi startups which represent the best value proposition, innovation and scalability of business models on the market today — and KodaCloud is clearly one to watch.”
What sets KodaCloud apart is that customers or MSPs do not need to buy equipment or software licenses. KodaCloud delivers and manages Wi-Fi networks for a low monthly fee and delivers an exceptional and proactive cloud network monitoring service that’s powered by patented Artificial Intelligence and machine learning features. In addition, MSPs benefit from unprecedented profit margins with KodaCloud’s recurring revenue model and customer-direct shipments.
“We are honored by this industry recognition and thankful for the MSP community’s support,” said Bernard Herscovici, founder and CEO of KodaCloud Inc.
