Microsoft’s latest push to consolidate partners under larger
direct partners is a smart one. Not only does it help direct partners generate
more revenue, speed up support times and reduce Microsoft’s overhead costs; the
move also provides indirect partners and their customers with additional benefits.
As a direct Microsoft CSP partner ourselves, Webmation evaluated the pros and cons of staying direct or switching to an indirect partner. The first big change was the new support package requirements that start at $15,000 a year and top $70,000 for advanced packages. Initially planning to stay direct, we were courted by several Enterprise level partners. During our evaluation process, the cost-to-benefit ratio of switching to an indirect partner became crystal clear.
Webmation is excited to announce our partnership with the SYNNEX Corporation
For Webmation, our decision to partner with SYNNEX was based on the following factors:
SYNNEX’s sales follow up and post client on-boarding also reassured our decision that they were the right partner for us. In addition, to being able to offer our clients continued support with their Microsoft Cloud Services, Webmation is now able to offer a array to software and hardware solutions; including Canon, HP, Symantec, Epson and more through the partnership. This will allow us to create plug and play solutions for our clients' security and IT infrastructure that integrate seamlessly with Webmation’s ERP SAAS platform and Managed Marketing Services.
