If you’re an Ingram Micro partner, you know about the value of the vendors who are in our cloud marketplace. You’ve also likely discovered one of the most popular SMB offerings, Microsoft Office 365, which is Microsoft’s flagship productivity suite—placed in the cloud.
If you are a reseller and currently have Office 365 seats purchased through the Advisor program that are up for renewal, the opportunities can now be endless for you as well. Did you know that you can now increase your margin by 100% on existing Office 365 seats that are due for renewal on Advisor licensing agreements by converting them to Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) seats? That’s right – you can still sell the same great product and make even more money than you did before!
What is the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program?
Glad you asked. The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program is a partner program that allows you to sell Microsoft solutions alongside your own offerings and services, or with other services on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. As a result, you’ll get to own the complete customer lifecycle through direct billing, provisioning, management, and support. On the revenue side, your margins will increase from 4% with Advisor to 9.1% by converting your expiring seats to CSP.
Great – What’s next?
If your Office 365 seats are due for renewal, get in touch with an Ingram Micro sales associate to begin converting Advisor seats to CSP and start doubling your margins TODAY!
