Microsoft CSP now available across Africa
What is the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program?
The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program enables partners to directly manage the entire lifecycle for their Microsoft cloud customers including billing and support. Partners in this program use dedicated in-product tools to directly provision, manage, and support their customer subscriptions. Partners can easily package their own tools, products and services, and combine them into one monthly or annual customer bill.
What are the benefits of CSP?
CSP makes it easy to build a managed services business with Microsoft Cloud Services and provides an opportunity to build recurring revenue streams.
How does this impact the way I sell today?
How you sell Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Intune, Enterprise Mobility Suite, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, and Microsoft Azure are exactly the same. This is simply one of the business models partners can consider when selling Microsoft cloud subscriptions.
Which products can I sell in this program?
You can sell all major commercial suites and standalone products for Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Intune, Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. We will add other services as they become available.
