Outsourcery and Ingram Micro have signed a strategic partnership to bring cloud services and expertise to a wider audience.
Under the partnership, Ingram Micro's reseller base will be able to sell Outsourcery’s hosted version of Microsoft Lync, which boasts enterprise-grade voice and UC functions delivered via the cloud.
Piers Linney, co-chief executive of Outsourcery, said: “The issue of VARs not being prepared to meet the cloud demand of customers is currently very prevalent and Ingram Micro has made a great step to address this. As a cloud provider, we pride ourselves on our bespoke hands-on approach and being entrusted with Ingram Micro’s partner network is a great privilege for us.”
Apay Obang-Oyway, general manager for enterprise software and services at Ingram Micro added: “We have created the Advanced Solutions Division to offer our channel partners a comprehensive approach for identifying and pursuing opportunities within advanced technology categories.
“Through higher-touch enablement programmes, dedicated resources and our strengths of specialisation and scale, we will help our partners grow and diversify while facilitating development in the channel.
“The successful model Outsourcery have already established complements these objectives so taking hosted cloud solutions to market together was the natural next step," he added.
