UK service provider Giacom has been selected by Microsoft to join their new Cloud Solution Provider programme as a 2-Tier Distributor and own the complete Office365 customer experience, including billing and technical support

HULL, UK – 26 February 2015 — / — UK based cloud service provider Giacom today announced it will be adding Microsoft’s Office365 to its MessageStream cloud marketplace for IT resellers.

The announcement is the result of Giacom’s successful inclusion into the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme as a 2-Tier Distributor. The programme allows Giacom to supply Office365 and Windows Intune subscriptions and own the complete client lifecycle, including billing, support and the customer experience.

“Including Office365 into our MessageStream marketplace will further expand our growing range of cloud services, providing a wider choice for IT support businesses, system integrators, telecom companies and service providers operating within Europe,” explains Giacom’s Managing Director Nick Marshall.

“We’re delighted to have been selected by Microsoft to join the Cloud Solution Provider programme, allowing Giacom to offer Office365 on a 2-tier distributor basis.”

Microsoft Corporate Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Group Phil Sorgen adds, “To meet the growing demand of our cloud-based solutions, we’re thrilled to expand the capabilities for cloud partners under the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider programme.

“By joining the programme, partners will deepen customer relationships and expand business opportunities in the cloud.”
Giacom’s MessageStream cloud marketplace is used by 2,500 partners, making it Europe’s largest channel-based cloud services platform. Giacom manages in excess of 90,000 Hosted Exchange mailboxes growing at 5,000 new seats each month. Other services in the cloud marketplace include Hosted SharePoint, Hosted File Backup and Hosted Email Security, offered at wholesale prices and fully re-brandable.

Matthew Barton from Exmouth based Ostrich IT and Giacom Partner believes Office365 within the MessageStream cloud marketplace will help his business attract new customers: “We offer a comprehensive range of support services and use Giacom’s technology to provide a selection of own-branded products in our portfolio. With Office365 in MessageStream, we’ll now be able to take on-board customers that exclusively want Microsoft’s suite of cloud services. This opens a whole new recurring revenue stream for our business.”

Giacom is expected to introduce Office365 into its MessageStream cloud marketplace in early April, and is currently taking enquiries from service providers that are looking to resell Office365 and Windows Intune to their European customers.
