SME customers may now purchase Microsoft Office 365 services directly from the Blacknight site.

For the first time ever, Microsoft is allowing companies to provide Microsoft services directly to their customers and Blacknight is the only Irish company that has been licensed to bundle Office 365 services through their own store. This means that Blacknight customers have one less hurdle to jump in growing their online businesses.

“If you’re a small business and you can get Microsoft cloud services directly from us, it will make your life easier,” explains Blacknight CEO Michele Neylon. “Depending on which of the plans you opt for you will be able to choose a variety of options for your small business success. If you’re one of our new or existing customers you can sign up for Office 365 products as well as all the Blacknight services that you love.”

Not only was Blacknight selected as the only Irish provider of Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider products, they have also been awarded the highest tier of participation to offer the greatest level of service.

Martin Cullen, sales director from Microsoft Ireland states: “We are delighted to welcome Blacknight who are the first to join the Cloud Solution Provider program as a one tier partner. It is crucial that as a CSP they obtain extensive capability standards to manage the cloud lifecycle and provide an excellent customer experience. We are very excited to continue growing our relationship with Blacknight as they continue to help organisations experience the benefits of Microsoft Cloud Platforms.”

The addition of Microsoft cloud-based products in the Blacknight store is part of an overall strategy to provide an end-to-end solution for small businesses. Blacknight consider this to be a key part of their mission to assist in creating Irish jobs and to help small businesses grow.

Neylon continues: “We are committed to bringing the best and latest technology to our customers and are constantly looking for ways to make it easier for SME customers to be the best businesses they can be. The ability to offer Microsoft cloud–based products to our clients is a huge win for us and we are very grateful to our partners, Odin for making this happen.”

Long time Blacknight partner, Odin, has developed the integration and bridge between Microsoft and Blacknight to allow a seamless customer experience when they purchase Office 365 products through the Blacknight site.
