DataGroupIT is known to provide complex solutions for Enterprise and SME markets across Africa.
Now in conjunction with Tech giant Microsoft , it has come up with a solution to help partners directly manage their entire cloud customer lifecycle through a program called Cloud Solution Provider (CSP). Through CSP, partners are able to provide customer support, billing and invoicing.
As Microsoft tried to expand the range of offerings and opportunities for partners, they announced back in 2014 the sale of Office 365 in the Open License Model (in addition to the traditional direct model). Partners worldwide took the opportunity, but required a solution for additional need raised, such as to manage the entire cloud customer lifecycle – sales, renewal, billing, support and more. The solution is the Cloud Solution Provider program.
Partners can now easily package their own tools, products and services, and combine them into one monthly or annual customer bill. Therefore, CSP has become a game changer and partners now have the ability to manage the customer’s license through distribution and offer additional products such as Azure, Dynamics CRM or even their own services or 3rd party products.
The CSP model was designed to offer unique bundles that could not be found in any other company. You now have the opportunity to sell products from variety of software manufacturers, adding you own services and differentiate yourself in a market where competition grows on a daily basis.
A monthly fee for the use of the program makes it more of a convenient alternative for customers. It also allows businesses to maintain direct contact with their customers. There is no middle man involved allowing consumers to be offered the best services available.
This program is aimed to simplify life while increasing a company’s profitability. Partners in this program use dedicated in-product tools to directly provision, manage, and support their customer subscriptions.
The profitability opportunity is high and is supported by Microsoft that sees the CSP model as a critical model for success. Being a partner in the CSP model you can:
- Participate in periodic promotions that significantly increase Revenue.
- Determine the prices for each product, as well as the bundles and services that are unique for you.
- Expand the range of solutions and offerings for your customers.
- Gain additional opportunities.
CSP is designed to provide Microsoft public cloud subscriptions, such as Office365, Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), Azure and Dynamics CRM Online. DataGroupIT offers a range of cloud solutions and creates an opportunity for you to increase your services and solutions for your customers. Unique bundles and offerings will make you a preferred partner by end customers.

The platform includes automation for business partners who can offer IT services and cloud services to their business customers in a subscription model. The platform offered by DataGroupIT upgrades the ability for provisioning, selling and billing Office 365, Microsoft Azure and more IaaS and SaaS solutions.
