“In our research, we have identified that a Microsoft partner typically faces three major challenges while embarking on the journey to sell Microsoft cloud solutions:
- Lack of an effective marketplace to showcase cloud solutions and non-cloud offerings;
- Inability to bill subscriptions on a periodic basis (automated renewals, upgrades, downgrades) along with billing of bundled products;
- No centralized customer support management tool along with lack of skilled pre-sales and post-sales support personnel (with Cloud knowledge),” said Guruprit Ahuja, CEO and Co-founder, RackNap. “RackNap helps Microsoft partners overcome these challenges and with managed services/business consulting, we help them meet their business, productivity and customer satisfaction goals with excellence.”
The finalists have been recognized with logos to acknowledge their accomplishment. Regional and global winners will be announced in a special ceremony at Microsoft Inspire 2018 in Las Vegas. Due to the high number of entries, there will be gold, silver and bronze winners this year.
