Giacom reaches 200,000 Microsoft CSP licenses
Monday, July 31, 2017
Giacom World Networks announced today that they have provisioned more than 200,000 Microsoft CSP licenses via the Giacom Cloud Market.
Since becoming a Microsoft 2-Tier Cloud Solution Provider (now known as an Indirect CSP) in early 2015, Giacom have established themselves as one of the world’s largest CSP providers. By reaching the milestone in less than 3 years, their leading position within the Cloud Solution Provider market has been solidified.
It’s the second major milestone in just three months for Giacom, after provisioning more than 150,000 Office 365 licences through the Giacom Cloud Market earlier this year.
Mike Wardell, Managing Director at Giacom, said: “We are delighted to reach such a significant figure so soon after becoming a Microsoft 2-Tier Cloud Solution Providers. With more and more businesses adopting cloud services, it’s an excellent time for IT support companies to benefit from the growth of the cloud. By accessing our wholesale rates for reseller specific cloud services, partners can build long-term revenue for years to come.”
The 2-Tier CSP status has also positioned Giacom in a strong financial position with revenue in 2016 reaching £6.6m. That figure is expected to more than double this financial year to more than £13m, having been strengthened from the backing of leading midmarket private equity investor LDC, part of the Lloyds Banking Group, in May last year.
As one of the largest and fastest-growing Microsoft Indirect CSP distributors, Giacom delivers its services to more than 4,000 partners across the UK. Between 70 and 100 IT resellers join the Cloud Marketplace each month, who in-turn resell a range of cloud services – such as Signature Hosted Exchange, Office 365 and Bitdefender – to their own clients.
