D&H Distributing has signed with SaaSMAX, a San Diego-based cloud aggregator, to deliver hosted SMB and cybersecurity applications developed by allied software vendors through the D&H’s Cloud Marketplace. Using this self-serve transactional portal, partners can choose from a series of hosted solutions to deliver on a monthly basis.
“The synergistic relationship between SaaSMAX and D&H will provide both of our partner communities expansive access to a unique set of hosted vertical solutions that create value for the end-customer,” said SaaSMAX CEO Dina Moskowitz. “The SaaS catalog gives VARs ample opportunity to offer cloud-based operational efficiencies and revenue-generating tools, which complement D&H’s portfolio of empowering solutions and services.”
SaaSMAX will also provide expertise and strategies to ease adoption and help partners to sell the services. The overall portfolio targets key areas such as HIPAA compliance, collaboration, mobile device management, hosted Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint management, security authentication, back-up, business intelligence, and mobility. New SaaSMAX-based applications are expected to be added on a regular basis.
The agreement is intended to introduce partners to a variety of hosted applications focused on key verticals such as education, healthcare, government, and financial services. The net result is an opportunity for partners to grow their managed service revenues.
