Ingram Micro Inc. has announced its European participation in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program. The program is designed to strengthen customer relationships and expand cloud sales opportunities by enabling channel partners to provision, bundle, invoice, manage and support Microsoft Cloud offerings including Microsoft Office 365 and Windows Intune subscriptions with greater ease and efficiency.

The first Ingram Micro European countries to participate in Microsoft's CSP program include Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K., with central and eastern Europe following shortly thereafter.

"Ingram Micro was one of the first to join the Microsoft CSP program in the United States and has seen early success," noted Carl Alloin, executive director, Cloud Europe, Ingram Micro. "Our goal is to differentiate Ingram Micro's Microsoft CSP offering by providing the cloud solution plus the migration services and a 24/7 customer-facing help desk for partners that choose not to staff a support organization. We offer the complete lifecycle from sales to support to simplify success for our channel partners and speed adoption of Microsoft Office 365 and Windows Intune."

"The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program puts our channel partners at the center of the customer relationship," said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "Ingram Micro's participation in our program, cloud advocacy and enablement resources demonstrate its dedication to helping our mutual channel partners move to the cloud."
