Ingram Micro and Microsoft Team Up


Ingram Micro Cloud has completed a successful integration of Microsoft’s updated new commerce experience billing options into its marketplace, an effort expected to extend more offerings and more versatility to partners and end customers.

Microsoft’s new commerce experience (NCE) in the vendor’s cloud solution provider (CSP) program is a multi-stage, multi-year transformational process by the company to deliver a simplified engagement experience designed to benefit both partners and customers.

It is designed to make transacting licences and attaching and managing services easier, ostensibly helping to accelerate partners’ business growth and their customers’ cloud adoption.

The company’s ongoing new commerce experience efforts saw the vendor announce the general availability in early January of new commerce seat-based offers in its CSP program, including for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Power Platform and Windows 365.

“This evolution is part of our continuing journey to drive cloud business growth, reduce licensing complexity and costs, and be responsive to how customers prefer to purchase and partners are enabled to sell,” said Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President, Global Channel Sales And Channel Chief at Microsoft, at the time.

Upon the successful integration of Microsoft’s NCE into the Ingram Micro Cloud platform, Clark said that the vendor was delivering a “consistent, simplified and flexible purchase experience” for customers and partners.

“Our collaboration with Ingram Micro Cloud has helped make this transition seamless and efficient for numerous partners and customers,” he said.
