Cloud services make the operation and management of any business easier. Thanks to its benefits your productivity, collaboration, and communication will improve.
The first step is to buy the package and license that best suits your organization’s needs. We know that it’s not easy to choose between so many different options and ways to acquire them. In this article we are going to cover one of the most convenient ways to acquire licenses: The Cloud Solution Provider program (CSP).
What is the CSP program?
In simple words, the CSP program allows customers to purchase Microsoft Cloud services from your local Microsoft Partner, like Venti Exchange, and not through the Microsoft website. Based on a monthly subscription or perpetual licenses, you get access to a range of benefits, such as exceptional guidance and personalized support.
Some of the cloud services this program offers are:
- SaaS products such as Office 365 suite, Power BI, and Dynamics 365. These products are usually paid for the numbers of users.
- Azure infrastructure and platform services such as Azure SQL and Azure Virtual Machines. In this services you pay for usage.
Benefits of the CSP program
1. Ongoing support
When buying directly from Microsoft’s site, you might have experienced not getting the fast support that your day-to-day operations need. By acquiring your licenses with the CSP program, you will get a premium service with easy to access 24/7 support, regardless of the size of your company. Your local providers will act as your point of contact in the event of a problem.
2. Flexible billing
Within the CSP program, you can pay only for what you use, with no upfront payments or long-term commitment, and billed monthly.
3. Expert guidance
Those familiar with Microsoft licensing know that understanding it can become a full-time profession. Taking this into consideration, one of the main benefits of the CSP program is having expert guidance to maximize your investment.
4. Volume Discounts
Your licensing partner can have access to additional benefits such as volume discounts, and by being familiar with your environment, a partner might be able to further optimize your costs.
