Sigma Cloud is a different take on CSP
Naturally, it includes an online store where you can buy, provision, deploy and manage your clients’ Microsoft subscriptions. You’ll also find a range of vendors selected specifically to help you accelerate and simplify your clients’ journey to the cloud. Want your own branded store? You've got it.
But the biggest difference is the support. Azure sales enablement, expert licensing advice and a named account manager come as standard. As does an in-depth onboarding programme. No more arms-length, digital-only, work it out yourself 'service'.
To drive your growth, we've included a range of white-label migration, deployment and health check services. And don’t forget our reporting system that gives you complete oversight of your clients’ entire Azure CSP estates.
Sigma Cloud. The ready-made cloud extension for your business.
