Launched back in 2015, Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider Program (or CSP Program for short) was created to allow resellers to take advantage of Microsoft’s cloud offering. Two models were created, resell Direct through Microsoft (tier one) and resell Indirect through a cloud distributor (tier two). In the CSP program intY serves as an Indirect Provider to resellers on the Indirect model.

As a Microsoft CSP Indirect Provider, we provide Microsoft cloud service licenses on the CSP program to our partners (resellers), along with support and management services. intY supports thousands of resellers, supplying the right Microsoft solutions to meet their customer needs.

Added value:How CSP partners can benefit

Becoming a CSP partner is advantageous for various reasons:

Access to the full Microsoft cloud portfolio

Office 365

Microsoft 365

Microsoft Business Voice

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Dynamics 365

Enterprise Mobility + Security

Microsoft Intune

Windows 10

You can bundle products in high-value configurations

Based on the specific expertise that your business can provide, you can choose a selection of Microsoft cloud products to bundle together with other vendor services including cloud security, backup and more and raise the value by offering related consultancy services. This allows you to increase your profit relative to offering individual licenses.

You can generate recurring revenue through your services

The more clients sign on, the more money can be secured on a monthly basis. Most CSP services are pay as you go, on a 30 day rolling contract. Bolt on your own support and management fees for even more revenue!

You can access high-level insight on product use

Having direct access to a provider that works closely with Microsoft allows you to glean insight into how certain services are being used, and how you can best assess their performance for your clients using our Partner Insights™ software.

You can more easily up-skill to Microsoft competencies.

Microsoft offers competencies to prove that certain resellers have particular skills. With intY as your cloud distributor, you can achieve relevant competencies far more efficiently, giving your business much more leverage when marketing to potential clients.

Our cloud solution provider program, or CSP, which puts our partners at the center of the customer relationship, is our strongest go-to-market offering yet.
