ThinkGrid, a cloud enablement platform vendor for the channel, has launched ThinkGrid Ceano, which is designed to provide channel partners with a comprehensive range of on-demand IT Services for their SMB customers which they can order, sell, configure and manage through an online portal. ThinkGrid Ceano also gives SMB customers access to the latest applications and infrastructure offerings from vendors such as Microsoft and VMware.According to Gregg Berretta, ThinkGrid’s VP of Sales, ThinkGrid Ceano means that businesses only pay for the services and capacity they need, safe in the knowledge that these can be scaled up and down as required. “With new services added on an on-going basis, SMBs will continue to benefit from access to an expanding and innovative portfolio,” he said. “By reducing the cost and complexity associated with managing multiple IT suppliers, SMBs will be free to focus on what concerns them the most – their core business.”
ThinkGrid Ceano enables channel partners to position themselves as a one-stop shop for cloud-based computing, messaging, collaboration and infrastructure services. This creates a competitive advantage for resellers. They benefit from continuing revenue streams and deeper customer relationships through on-going service provision.
