Sigma Cloud – The ready-made cloud extension for your business14 January, 2020
Today sees an exciting development for resellers looking to grow their cloud business. Sigma Software Distribution is launching Sigma Cloud, our indirect CSP service that has reseller enablement and support at its heart.
“Sigma’s whole ethos is about working with vendors and resellers to grow their business by offering something different. We’ve taken the same approach with Sigma Cloud.” said Jane Silk, Sigma’s Managing Director. “We spoke to the market and it was clear they wanted more practical advice, better sales enablement and a wider range of vendors. So that’s exactly what we built”.
Sigma Cloud includes an online store where resellers will find a range of vendors selected specifically to help you accelerate and simplify their clients’ journey to the cloud. They’ll also be able to buy, provision, deploy and manage their clients’ Microsoft subscriptions online.
To broaden their proposition, resellers can offer white-labelled deployment and health check services delivered by Sigma’s Microsoft certified engineers. They can also access advanced reporting tools that include all their clients’ Azure usage, forecasts monthly consumption and analyses costs by resource groups and tags.
Jane Silk continued: “When talking to resellers a common theme was a lack of real support to get started and then accelerate Indirect CSP sales, which is why we’ve designed a detailed onboarding programme. Amongst other things it includes Azure sales training and scheduled, proactive check-ins with their account manager. Plus, there’s ongoing licensing advice to help resellers scope and price opportunities. We’re here to build long-term relationships that work for everyone.”
