Become a CSP partnerand increase profitability

Transitioning to be a cloud service provider isn’t always totally straightforward. You’re going to need your plans in place and a clear idea of where you’re going with CSP. By becoming a CSP partner, you can increase profitability through enhanced margins as well as providing a broader range of Microsoft services to your own customers. This is one of many reasons why we recommend that CSP is the right way to go, and CSP is easy with intY.

Now, you may be wondering why you should go indirect through a CSP distributor… When going direct to Microsoft, you’ll have to meet a vast range of requirements in order to resell cloud services within the CSP programme. Microsoft do this so that their products are never under or mis-sold, and to keep customer satisfaction as good as it can be wherever Microsoft products are concerned.

So, here’s where a distributor comes in

Choose the right distributor for you

So, if you’ve decided that you want to go indirectly, that’s step one complete. The next step after working out your plan is choosing the right CSP distributor for you. We’re aware of the hurdles you’ll face on your CSP journey, so, we’ve put together this article to give you an idea of what you need from a CSP distributor and to give you an idea of the questions you should be asking.

It depends on a few of the points listed above. If you’re looking to sell CSP but want to own the customer relationship, we offer that. Through our Expert Partner programme, you can bill the customer, provide the technical support and earn fantastic margins from us along the way. Want to sell CSP but don’t have full billing and technical support capabilities? That’s fine, join our Trusted Advisor programme where we can bill your customer and provide them super technical support, while you get paid great commissions.

Will I have a personal account manager?

If a CSP distributor can offer you a dedicated and personal account manager, you’re winning. You need somebody who is a specialist in cloud to help guide you with your CSP plan, but also be 100% committed and dedicated to helping you grow your business. Any good distributor should be able to offer this, because the hurdles you’ll face along the way will mean that you’ll need your own personal account manager there at the other end.

You need a specialist who knows you, your business and your business plan and who is there ready to assist and provide go-to-market resources and support. Well, we have some great news… we offer this kind of super support as standard for all our partners.
