SkyKick and ConnectWise team up for Office 365 resellers

15 Nov 16

SkyKick has teamed up with ConnectWise in a deal it says will enable Australian and New Zealand partners to more efficiently deliver value to Microsoft Office 365 customers.

The two companies have done an integration deal which will see SkyKick Cloud Backup and SkyKick Cloud Migration Suites accessible inside the ConnectWise CloudConsole.

The collaboration 'increases partner efficiency and profitability by enabling them to migrate and backup Microsoft Office 365 customers and manage their IT presence in one place," SkyKick says.

Chris Rayner, SkyKick’s vice president of product management, says: “The SkyKick integration with ConnectWise’s CloudConsole will release in all markets at the same time, including Australia and New Zealand.

“SkyKick is excited about this integration and extending its value to all partners who use ConnectWise. Through the collaboration, partners will be able to more efficiently deliver value to their Microsoft Office 365 customers.”

Rayner says the collaboration is designed to help partners become more successful.

“Many SkyKick partners already are ConnectWise partners, so having our products available within ConnectWise means they can now get all their business management needs met in one place - making customer cloud service management more efficient than ever.”

Craig Fulton, ConnectWise vice president of product, says more deeply integrating the technologies ‘creates an experience that enables partners to more efficiently deliver their cloud and managed services offerings’.

SkyKick says it is the first independent software vendor that ConnectWise is making available via CloudConsole.
