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.”
