As 2015 comes to end and we look toward 2016, all key indicators point to the continued growth and demand of cloud services in the enterprise and SMB market. According to a Harvard Business Review survey, 85% of respondents from a group of 1,500 business and technology professionals plan to embrace some form of cloud technology in the next three years because of the direct impact it has on business growth, collaboration, and innovation.* As cloud computing becomes more attractive and utilized in this dynamic business landscape, channel partners are now seeking innovative ways to seamlessly and cost-effectively transform their customers’ businesses to the cloud while leveraging a competitive advantage.
Ingram Micro Cloud knows that the fast-track to channel partner success includes an affordable and seamless onboarding process that not only supports successful business transformation, but allows more time for channel partners to exploit new opportunities. To help facilitate this success, channel partners can now efficiently purchase, sell, and provision leading professional services platform, MaaXcloud on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace in the United States. Developed by Mural, MaaXcloud helps you manage your cloud business more efficiently, offering setup, migration, and training for popular cloud-based services like Microsoft Office 365 and Acronis.
“Mural is leading the way in helping businesses move their IT to the cloud, providing specialized expertise in user set up, data migration, and training,” said Steve Zimba, CEO of Mural. “Our MaaXcloud professional services are designed to help customers get their cloud IT services implemented quickly, addressing what can typically be a time-consuming and tedious process. We’re excited to support customers of Ingram Micro’s expansive channel partner community, starting with those buying Office 365 and Acronis, and we look forward to delivering additional solutions that drive business transformation in the near future.”
End customers leveraging MaaXcloud for their cloud onboarding needs can accelerate their time to adoption and enjoy benefits such as:
- Standard and Premium Onboarding: Efficiently set up and onboard organization-wide users with guided walkthrough from a personal advisor, removing technical hurdles and enabling end-users to use the technology immediately.
- Migration Services: Easily move data from one environment to another in both Acronis and Office 365, minimizing downtime and data loss while maintaining legacy file structures.
- End User Training: Instruct up to 25 remote users on the functionalities of Acronis and Office 365 through a remote, web-based meeting tool, delivering a far lower cost than hiring external consultants.
“Our strategic partnership with MaaXcloud enables faster onboarding and consumption of cloud solutions,” said Jason Bystrak, executive director, North America, Ingram Micro Cloud. “By pairing MaaXcloud with our automated Cloud Marketplace, channel partners can quickly onboard their customers, enabling quicker business transformation, technological flexibility, and increased upsell opportunities.”
