Enables ScanSource channel partners to provide trusted migration, backup, and recovery solutions for end-customers
GREENVILLE, S.C., — ScanSource, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCSC), a leading provider of technology products and solutions, today announced its partnership with SkyKick, a global provider of cloud management software for IT solutions partners, and award winning Microsoft Office 365 cloud migration and online backup technology leader. ScanSource and SkyKick will help accelerate customer cloud transformation by enabling partners to deliver seamless migrations to Office 365 and provide complete cloud backup protection to their customers.
With the end of support for Windows 7 and Microsoft Exchange 2010, many end-user customers are moving to the cloud. The ScanSource and SkyKick relationship provides a much-needed solution to VARs and agents, enabling them to provide migrations to their end customers with the backing of a trusted partner along with additional services such as backup, storage and disaster recovery.
“SkyKick is one of the largest providers of cloud backup and migration services in the SaaS industry. Through ScanSource’s recent launch of Microsoft to the channel, as well as the addition of SkyKick’s solutions, ScanSource partners can expect easier access to one-click bundles for Office 365 licenses, migration, backup, security and support,” said Mark Morgan, President of Intelisys, a ScanSource company. “Our sales partners will be able to capitalize on the end of support for Windows 7 and Microsoft Exchange 2010 by providing their customers with a seamless transition from on premise to cloud. This is another step ScanSource is taking to create solutions built around the needs of our partners, so they can more effectively provide the services their customers need.”
ScanSource’s Office 365 bundles streamline operational complexity and mitigate risk for end customers to move to the cloud, by packaging SkyKick’s award-winning Migration Suites and Cloud Backup with their world-class value-add services. Businesses have struggled with migration issues for over a decade, but now they can benefit from automated processes and a seamless client experience with SkyKick’s #1 MSP-rated Office 365 migration tool. SkyKick Cloud Backup provides customers with essential peace of mind that their valuable Office 365 email and files are protected and can be easily restored in the event of unexpected data loss.
“We’re excited to partner with ScanSource as they look to bring greater cloud revenues and profitability to their partners in the telecom and cloud services market with SkyKick’s Office 365 bundled Migration and Backup offering,” said SkyKick Vice President of Business Development Peter Labes. “We look forward to delivering a high-quality end-customer migration and backup experience, and to expanding the Office 365 CSP economics for ScanSource partners with sticky, high-margin, recurring revenue.”
