Today Crayon announced it has recently been awarded Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA) reseller authorization in the United States. SPLA is an agreement for the rental of Microsoft software licenses specifically designed for service providers and independent software vendors (ISVs).
Frank Bitoun, Senior Vice President Crayon Americas said: “We are very proud of this achievement and believe this recent Microsoft SPLA reseller authorization in the US, when combined with our unique consulting experience, will allow our channel partners to accelerate their business in a win-win approach. By managing and optimizing their Microsoft SPLA licensing usage, we support our channel partners by allowing them to concentrate their efforts on going to market and focusing on their end customers. We also support them by mitigating risks in compliance, and by simplifying the onboarding, deployment, and management of their Microsoft software consumption.”
This achievement allows Crayon to assist in empowering hosters, service providers, and ISVs in differentiating their software services and hosted applications to end customers, while also simplifying their management and reporting of consumption through the use of Crayon’s unique platforms.
“At Microsoft, we are supportive to work with Crayon in their quest to consistently empower service providers and ISVs to comprehensively manage the latest eligible Microsoft software products and subscriptions. We’re pleased to add Crayon to our list of SPLA resellers in the United States, and we look forward to their continued success in simplifying processes and management for SPLA licensing customers,” said Carlos de Torres, General Manager of US Hosting and Managed Service Providers at Microsoft US.
