We have one of the largest teams in the enterprise-class Microsoft Azure managed services industry with over 450 Microsoft certifications. Microsoft has recognized this fact, by awarding Navisite with the Azure Expert MSP classification, separating Navisite from other MSPs and elevating our expertise in the Azure community.

We want to offer differentiated level of service to our clients – so clients can choose at any point of time, depending on Azure Services, which level of service appeals to them. In this spirit, Navisite is now providing two levels of Azure services – Assist and Encompass in order to provide tailored services to best meet our clients needs for Microsoft Azure’s ever expanding set of feature and services.
