Share our vision and become a part of our exciting partnership programme

 

Most Partners find it simple to build a managed service around Office and Email but struggle with the rest of the Office 365 workload, such as Yammer, OneDrive and Azure. With FLEX, you’ll be able to build a managed service inclusive of the whole Office 365 workload.

 

We know that one size of partnership doesn’t necessarily fit all. FLEX brings unique benefits to each of our different partnership opportunities, whether you fall into the category of a Service Provider, a Hoster, a License Partner or otherwise.

Many MSP would like to profitably exploit Office 365 workloads such as SharePoint/Yammer/OneDrive  but are put off by the cost and complexity of building sales and delivery capability. FLEX addresses this challenge by providing packaged and out-of-the-box solutions (Intranet, Collaboration and Digital Workplace) that are easy to sell and deploy without the need to build a dedicated SharePoint practice.

In the world of hyper scale cloud offerings (Azure, Office 365, AWS etc.) most hosters are focused on extending their business models to embrace the hyper scale cloud vendors and protect their current income base.  FLEX provides a solution to this challenge: FLEX uses automation technology to dramatically reduce the time and cost of deploying Office 365 (SharePoint/Yammer/OneDrive).  Providing a differentiated and profitable way selling Office 365 to their existing customer base.  FLEX runs on Azure providing an opportunity to sell new subscriptions to customers.  Finally, FLEX allows hosters to exploit SharePoint/Yammer/OneDrive without the time and cost it takes to build a practice.

As an accredited Microsoft License Provider, it’s likely that driving Consumption of Office 365 and Azure is central to your strategy, as well as maximising revenues and profits. FLEX sits on top of both Office 365 and Azure, addressing workloads such as SharePoint, Yammer & OneDrive which have traditionally been hard to mass adopt. FLEX can assist with generating either Net New E3 or E5 revenue, and the opportunity to up-sell current customers.

Independent software vendors are increasingly looking at exploiting the huge Office 365 customer base.  FLEX provides ISV’s with a simple mechanism to deploy and integrate their solutions into the Office 365 technology stack without the time and cost of engineering it themselves.

The SharePoint, Intranet and Social market has transformed over the last 2 years with the rise of the Intranet in a box and Digital Workplace software vendors.  The general availability of low cost, fully featured out the box solutions has changed the customer buying patterns with an increasing preference for off the shelf.  FLEX allows System Integrators to compete with other off the shelf solutions whilst allowing value to be added and service delivered through the FLEXWARE APi.

HOW DO YOU MAKE MONEY OUT OF OFFICE 365 AS A PARTNER?

When it comes to selling Office 365 as a partner, there are often several obstacles you need to overcome before you start generating a profit. Some of the most common obstacles are objections to cost, and understanding why and how customers will benefit from utilising the various workloads of Office 365.

So, how do you make money from SharePoint and Office 365 if:

  • I don’t want to set up a SharePoint practice

  • My sales team don’t know how to sell SharePoint

  • I don’t know why my customers should buy it

  • My customers won’t spend much on SharePoint

  • I don’t see how I can make any money from it

The answer could be a lot simpler than you might expect.
