With Ingram Micro announcing the expansion of its Ecosystem of Cloud to include new cloud delivery platforms at Cloud Summit 2016, many channel partners were eager to learn more about the capabilities of each platform, including the Ingram Micro Cloud Store.
The room was full and all eyes were focused on Ingram Micro’s Gabriel Balo during Wednesday afternoon’s Cloud Summit breakout session as he enlightened the crowd on the benefits of this platform, how it can help drive cloud sales, and which partner business model it best suits.
Cloud Store, a $199/month add-on service to the Cloud Marketplace, allows IT service providers and MSPs to purchase, sell, and provision cloud solutions directly to their customers through a self-branded, e-commerce store integrated directly into their existing website.
According to Balo, “Cloud Store enables your organization to set up a white label eCommerce storefront complete with a payment gateway merchant account set up to sell the cloud services available on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace as well as your own custom services to your end customers directly from your existing company’s website.”
Other benefits of Cloud Store include the ability for channel partners to create personalized service SKUs, including mail migration bundles for increased cross-selling opportunities. Partners can also leverage Cloud Store’s unlimited 24/7/365 Level 2 support for all cloud solutions sold and take advantage of recurring billing management.
