Rectron, a distributor of IT products, has announced the addition of Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme to its portfolio.
The introduction of the CSP offers significant value to the South African channel, not only as it increases their access to Microsoft cloud services, but also because it enables them to integrate these services with other cloud services, unlocking additional revenue streams such as configuration, migration and SLAs, all offered on a single invoice.
The programme allows for businesses to pay a monthly fee for their cloud licences instead of the traditional annual fee.
Often cloud transformation among resellers is hindered by the lack of skills to migrate and deploy. However, to assist their transition to the cloud, resellers can outsource their deployment, migration and monitoring services to Rectron’s professional services team, and simply on-bill their customers, freeing them to work on developing the skills they need.
“One of Rectron’s top priorities over the past three years has been the growth of its software and cloud portfolio,” said MD of Rectron, Spencer Chen.
“Our recent acquisition of Palladium Business Solutions, together with this important Microsoft appointment, mark an acceleration of our journey, and we look forward to helping the channel transition with us in order to remain profitable in this digital age.”
The distributor’s expanding cloud and software portfolio is available through Rectron’s own RCT Cloud platform. This includes Microsoft cloud services, Palladium ERP software, Microsoft electronic software delivery, Acronis cloud backup, Bitdefender security and Kaspersky security solutions.
