Request Information

Office 365 now available for businesses of all sizes; cloud-based solution offers unmatched security features, privacy and overall value.

Greenville, SC— SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE:  SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services, today announced that it is reselling the next-generation Office 365 service, Microsoft Corporation’s most complete Office cloud service to date, for small and midsize businesses. Previously offering an advisor-only based model, SYNNEX now provides Microsoft Office 365 benefits of the traditional channel through an Open and Full Package Product (FPP) licensing model.

“We are seeing tremendous interest in technologies such as Office 365,” said Rob Moyer, Vice President, Microsoft Global Business Unit and Cloud Services. “Small and midsize companies have realized that cloud services can help them grow and be more competitive while simultaneously reducing IT complexity. We provide resellers the tools needed to give them leverage over competitors, while making their transition to the cloud nearly effortless.”

In addition, starting today resellers own the billing process, which allows them to easily sell Office 365 subscriptions to customers through their own sales models.

“Microsoft has a proven track record of helping partners build their businesses and strengthen relationships with customers,” said Kirk Gregersen, general manager, Microsoft Office Division. “Through the new Office 365 Open licensing model, partners will be able to offer the always-up-to-date Office applications customers know and love through trusted, industry-leading Office 365 cloud services.”

To support the adoption of Office 365, partners can take advantage of SYNNEX’ Capture the Cloud program, which offers both seasoned and novice cloud resellers a tiered program to deliver partners with resources, including dedicated Office 365 experts, a wide range of training offerings and end user marketing support.

“As one of the fastest-growing providers of IT solutions and services, we see a great opportunity to capitalize on Office 365 Open with SYNNEX’ Capture the Cloud program. Transitioning customers to the cloud is one of our top priorities and 365 Open allows us to offer them a clear roadmap to success,” said David Friedline, Corporate Director, Business Development for NWN Corporation.

 “As an Office 365 Specialist and Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner, we rely on continual support from Microsoft,” said Reed Wilson, CEO and Founder of Palmetto Technology Group (PTG). “By having access to the industry’s brain trust for all things Microsoft through SYNNEX’ Capture the Cloud program, we are able to easily extend our marketing messaging and Office 365 expertise to customers. Our relationship with SYNNEX has enabled us to offer customers flexible best-in-class solutions, while igniting triple digit growth for PTG year-over-year.”

Office 365 Is for Businesses of All Sizes

Small and midsize businesses will be able to work from anywhere and boost productivity by accessing the full-featured, rich Office applications they are familiar with, on up to five devices, and delivered as an always up-to-date cloud service. In addition, the new Office unlocks new scenarios from meetings to digital note taking and reading. More information can be found at http://www.office365.com.
