In an effort to drive managed services growth in the region, Ingram Micro partners will now have access to Kaseya’s SaaS-based tools.
Available now to Ingram’s 6,000 active partners in ANZ, the tools will be available anytime and won’t require the typical overhead that accompanies acquiring and managing the infrastructure typically required for the delivery of managed services. Kaseya’s IT Toolkit offers pay-as-you-go pricing and rapid deployment and help service companies increase recurring revenue.
Regional Director of Kaseya ANZ Tim Dickinson said, “Ingram Micro is making a bold move in providing best of class tools that enable services providers of all sizes to be more efficient and provide better service. This will definitely help channel partners begin a transition to new revenue streams and grow into the managed services market.”
Dickinson said that the deal is the first of its kind for the two companies. General Manager of Ingram Micro’s Enterprise Technology Group David Lenz said that managed services have seen a huge uptake in the region, but many service providers haven’t taken advantage of the opportunities due to the initial investment required.
Lenz said: “With Kaseya’s IT Toolkit our partners can start down the path of providing IT services without having to make any upfront investment. We are looking forward to assisting out partners move into managed services with the leading technology vendor in the market.”
