“We are extremely excited about the opportunity that we can bring to the channel by becoming a Microsoft Multi-Tier Distributor”, said David Latulippe, VP Sales & Business Development at IT Cloud. “The combination of business productivity solutions such as Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS), Microsoft Intune and Microsoft Dynamics 365, plus our award-winning business continuity cloud solutions, make a compelling proposition for channel partners to take to market. Our partners can now combine business continuity and productivity in one single place, IT Cloud Solutions.”

As a Microsoft cloud distribution partner, IT Cloud integrates functionalities of Microsoft APIs for service provisioning and configuration. The principal mission for IT Cloud is to help IT companies expand their customer base, to catalyze sales to a faster rhythm than the actual market for Microsoft cloud solutions and to allow business recognition by Microsoft via certifications and competencies. IT Cloud Solutions educates and enables its partners, provides supports and billing on behalf of partners and, ultimately, helps them grow their Microsoft cloud solutions.

Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, Worldwide Channels & Programs at Microsoft Corp. said, “Customers are adopting cloud-based solutions to drive digital transformation like never before, and we’re thrilled to expand the capabilities for cloud partners under the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Indirect program. By joining the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Indirect program, IT Cloud Solutions will deepen partner relationships and expand business opportunities in the cloud.”

Mirco Cristoni, President at IT Cloud said, “This is an exciting time for IT Cloud as we have been helping our partners transform their businesses and leverage the cloud opportunity for many years now. Being an Official Microsoft Cloud Distributor allows us to build even stronger relationships with our partners and provide them with integrated cloud solutions for their customers.”

Some of IT Cloud’s partners had these comments to share.

Dean Mueller, President at Infinity Business Solutions, Surrey, BC, commented, “IT Cloud is the new value-added distributor in the cloud services market. Starting with a full training orientation of their services. They demonstrate a caring attitude through their sales and tech support staff backed up by their detailed and easy to use web portal. Adding new clients and /or products is a breeze with the portal and ensures I can make sales or get support on my schedule, any time of the day. Their team is always available when you need help.”

“With IT Cloud as a distributor, everything is simplified, down from the registration up to the management of clients, users and licenses. IT Cloud allows me to combine business continuity, with the supervised backup solutions, along with business productivity with Microsoft Office 365. I also get access to a high level of support with the competent and professional staff at IT Cloud,” said Eric Defoy, President at Prima-Net, Laval, QC.

“Before IT Cloud, we never offered Microsoft Office 365 integrations to our customers. I love the relationship I have with IT Cloud, they are approachable and offer excellent support for my migrations. They provide training when I need it. IT Cloud alleviates the burden on my administration department. Indeed, I don’t have to bill my clients, as they do it for us, in my name. Their portal is very user-friendly and intuitive, and allows me to manage all my customers.”, said Sylvain Perusse, President at Infoteck, Shawinigan, QC.

Born in the cloud, IT Cloud was established in 2005 to provide cloud backup services in the form of supervised cloud solutions to MSPs.
