ConnectWise has announced that its CloudConsole offering is now available as a standalone solution for any solution provider specializing in Microsoft Office 365 and Azure cloud services.
“When we initially launched CloudConsole last year, it was available only to our ConnectWise Manage partners,” said chief product officer Craig Fulton. “However, as the number of [solution providers] that have added cloud services to their set of offerings has expanded and as the number of requests we have received for access to ConnectWise CloudConsole outside of ConnectWise Manage has grown, we knew it was time to give any [solution provider] that manages cloud services – MSPs, VARs, CSPs and others – the ability to take advantage of the huge shift in business spending to cloud computing solutions.”
Key functions of the offering include management, monitoring, and billing, delivered at a multi-tenant level, as opposed to operating at an individual account level.
As the world of managed services and cloud continues to gain momentum, the success of the solution provider becomes heavily dependent on efficiency. Platforms that enable the channel to address important functions across the breadth of their customer base will become increasingly prevalent.
