Seattle ISV Pickit Launched Inside Ingram Cloud Market Place

Geek Speak

If we’re anything at SMB Nation, we’re chippy! So it was a high honor and privilege to discover Pickit, a Microsoft 365/Office 365 gap filler ISV with attitude. It’s delivering a purpose built add-in that we

can use at SMB Nation right here right now as a publisher. It’s about legally managing art and visual assets when creating stuff with the Office family.

Here are more dets – forgive the corporate speak:

Pickit, the 2-in-1 image service that lives inside Office 365, today

announced its global go-to-market alliance with Ingram Micro, a Fortune 500 global technology

distributor, cloud services aggregator and platform provider. As part of the new relationship,

Ingram Micro is now bundling Pickit with new Office 365 sales, enabling channel partners to sell

the market’s No. 1 most popular downloaded add-in by Office 365 users for businesses.

Channel partners selling Microsoft Office 365 today are well positioned to offer Pickit to their

customers as a valuable add-in for creating impactful presentations. Currently, employees of

businesses that use Microsoft to produce presentations and documents have a very limited

selection of powerful assets to choose from. Adding Pickit to Microsoft software ensures that all

employees will have access to a user-friendly tool they will actually want to adopt — enabling

them to make impactful presentations and stunning slides that will increase business value.

General consumers have been active cloud users for years, but organizations are still lagging

behind: however, 2019 is expected to be the year companies take the leap into utilizing the

cloud in their operations. Given its synergies with the Microsoft Office 365 ecosystem, Pickit is a

great use case of a cloud-based solution that will encourage companies to upgrade to fuller

cloud-based services and take advantage of this software.

“The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace will help us to expand our reach to tens of thousands of

channel partners worldwide and show them how easy and profitable Pickit is to sell with Office

365,” said Pickit Founder and Co-CEO, Mathias Björkholm.

Pickit and Ingram Micro are kicking off the relationship with a U.S.-based campaign encouraging

channel partners to sell Office 365 bundled with Pickit, Dropbox, and Skykick in order to

sweeten the upgrade. Channel partners can easily add Pickit to their Office 365 sales via the

Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, adding greater business value to their customers and building

more profitability into the sale.

“Our mission at Ingram Micro is to enable our channel partners with access to the industry’s

widest and most robust cloud services portfolio,” said Tim FitzGerald, vice president, Cloud

Channel Sales, North America, Ingram Micro. “Office 365 is a great ‘in’ for our channel partners

who are selling cloud services. We’re excited to see our alliance with Pickit grow and bring

greater sales opportunities and margin potential to our channel partners selling Office 365.”
