Cloud is growing faster than anyone predicted. By 2020, the public cloud market will be 24% larger than industry analysts predicted back in 2014—and will likely account for almost half of all IT spending.

Cloud Referral is the fastest and easiest entry to the cloud market, designed to provide a profitable and convenient solution. Partners direct end-customers to Ingram Micro's referral marketplace website to make purchases, earning commissions while running their businesses.

  • Gain quick access to growing opportunities in the cloud services market with this lucrative replacement to the Microsoft Advisor Program

  • Maintain or even increase earned commissions on some of the marketplace’s top products such as Microsoft Office 365 (more services to be added soon)

  • Begin selling cloud solutions with no initial investment, and collect commissions while focusing on customer relationships and core business activities

“By working with Ingram and joining the Ingram Micro Cloud Referral program, we can just refer our Office 365 customer. Ingram Micro handles the client billing, and we still earn commissions. We’re actually earning even more from Ingram than we were with Microsoft!”
