European technology distributor has established a new greenfield operation in the UK.
In the past, ALSO was represented only indirectly via Platform-as-a-Service partners but has now launched ALSO Cloud UK, offering channel partners direct access to ALSO’s cloud commerce marketplace.
The ALSO Cloud Market Place (ACMP) enables IT professionals to buy, sell, and manage best-in-class technology solutions and devices through a portfolio of nearly 200 vendors. According to the company, the “benchmark technology” offers managed service providers “everything they need to accelerate growth and increase efficiency”.
Migration, provisioning, account management, license renewals, billing and analytics can all be done through the ACMP. UK channel partners can use it as a white label solution with their own branding, giving them full control and offering their customers subscription-based self-serviced access to the ALSO portfolio.
ALSO CEO Gustavo Möller-Hergt said: “An increasing number of customers have been asking us for access to the full ALSO service and vendor portfolio. This is why we have decided to enter the market with a local presence. It will enable UK resellers to provide their customers with access to workplace, business, and cybersecurity-applications as well as cloud infrastructure of global vendors. Value-add resellers and ISVs can also offer and charge for their own services and applications through the platform.”
