Deal sees the global software experts providing enhanced support for ISPs, Telcos and Hosting firms to optimise the sales and support for Microsoft cloud technologies
Crayon, the global leader in software asset management (SAM), cloud and volume licensing, and associated consulting services, has been appointed as a European Cloud Distribution Partner in Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Program.
Participation in the CSP program is designed to help strengthen customer relationships and expand cloud sales opportunities by enabling channel partners to provision, manage and support Microsoft’s Cloud offerings like Office 365 and Windows Intune.
As a result, Crayon will be providing enhanced support to enable accelerated sales and deployment of Microsoft Office 365, Windows Intune and Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) subscriptions through Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Telecommunications Providers (Telcos) and Web Hosting firms. Crayon’s offer will support these service providers throughout the customer sales, deployment and support lifecycle, enabling efficient provisioning, billing and help desk facilities to end user customers, thereby enhancing market reach for Microsoft Cloud Technology. Furthermore, as a Cloud Distributor, Crayon can help any IT or channel partner move their offers and services to Microsoft Cloud.
Crayon’s selection reflects the depth of experience it has around cloud migration and licensing within its business today. As a Microsoft top three global Services Provider License Agreement Reseller (SPLAR), Crayon has a proven track record in managing Cloud and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partners. In addition, Crayon’s track record in Software Asset Management means that service providers will benefit from proven in depth expertise at optimising, managing and provisioning complex IT estates on their journey to the cloud.
By leveraging Crayon SAM & managed services, partners are able to quickly convert sales on Microsoft Cloud Technology products revitalising their sales portfolio to address the growing enterprise trend to selectively outsource elements of their IT infrastructure. Specifically, Crayon can now provide unique fully managed services delivered from Microsoft Cloud.
Michael Høegh Vilain, Crayon VP Cloud & Service Providers, explains, “As we move through 2015 we look forward to working with service providers to educate and introduce more businesses to the possibilities afforded by Microsoft’s cloud technology. Our rich vein of history in software asset management, volume licensing and cloud service provider expertise means we are uniquely placed when it comes to helping businesses to optimise their IT estate on the journey to cloud.”
