Posted by on Sep 14, 2015 in Cloud, Microsoft, Partners, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Earlier this year AspiraCloud (or SharePointEdutech as we were known then) was awarded their Gold Cloud Platform Provider competency from Microsoft.  That might not mean a great deal to you now, but its big news for us.  In this blog post, I hope to unpack some of the key features of this program and why it will be of benefit to you to work with AspiraCloud as you Cloud Solution Provider partner.


The whole purpose of the Microsoft cloud competencies is to improve the customer route to the cloud with the help of a trusted partner like AspiraCloud.  Like any good consultancy company we wanted to engage with the customer at every level of the process, from the initial consultation, right through to the sale.  By helping and supporting our customers the purchase of licenses and setting up a cloud tenancy is just the start.  The cloud platform program allows us to directly engage with the customer and support the development of their project throughout the early stages and in to the maturity phase.  By the time annual renewal comes around, the customer and AspiraCloud are fully engaged in assuring successful implementation and management of the project and the business solutions provisioned in the cloud.

By working in partnership with AspiraCloud the customer will get a much netter picture of the billing process and what their cloud services are really costing them.  They can start to see the savings build up over time which maintaining the same strict financial controls they are used to operating with capital expenditure.

Each month the customer and the partner receive a clearly laid out bill detailing their cloud usage and the associated costs.  There are no hidden extras.

Working with a cloud specialist like AspiraCloud also allows the customer to tailor their spend exactly how they want to see it.  They can make an annual commitment or more to benefit from the best prices or simply commit to a monthly contracted fee.  This model also benefits AspiraCloud as we can create special offers and incentives in our own right to attract new customers and promote the fantastic opportunities available to the customer in the cloud.

From time to time things will go wrong.  As part of the provisioning process for customers working with a Cloud Partner like AspiraCloud we are able to set up a direct route to technical support services and mange the calls on behalf of the customer.  Its like having your own team of support services but with the extra back up services from Microsoft, the world’s leading cloud provider.


So by now perhaps you are wondering what Cloud Services we can offer you as part of this program.  Well the answer is simple.  We can offer you Office 365, Windows Intune, Microsoft Azure, Dynamics Online, Microsoft Project Online and so much more.
