Every year, Microsoft Canada holds the IMPACT Awards during Microsoft Inspire to celebrate innovation in technology. They recognize partners who have accomplished outstanding work in delivering seamless solutions to customers—and demonstrated excellence in the Canadian partner community.
This year, Ingram Micro Cloud is the winner of both the 2020 Microsoft Canada Indirect Cloud Solution Provider of the Year IMPACT Award and the Modern Marketing IMPACT award
These wins come on the heels of two other significant honours: Ingram Micro Cloud recently won the Global Indirect Provider Partner of the Year Award and was named as a runner-up for the Canada Partner of the Year Award.
These recognitions were well-earned. As part of our steadfast commitment to serving our partners with best-in-class technology solutions that accelerate their cloud journey and grow their business, the following are some of the initiatives we’ve invested in, which distinguished us from our competitors:
Ingram Micro Cloud has made significant investments in Accelerate Programs across the three Microsoft Clouds—all accessible through Cloud Marketplace, the premier source for innovative cloud services and solutions. The Accelerate Programs provide partners with exclusive benefits, such as additional margins, enablement activities and marketing support. By participating in the Accelerate Programs, partners can further develop themselves as cloud experts for their customers through comprehensive training and certifications.
The Comet Competition is the industry’s leading B2B start-up competition dedicated to helping talented independent software vendors (ISVs) scale through the channel. We launched the annual Comet Competition last yearfrom three cities—and now in its second year, Toronto was one of 16 cities around the world selected to host the competition. Comet Competition offers ISVs the opportunity to compete for $5 million in cash + go-to-market funds and join Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace as an emerging vendor to scale their solutions across the partner community.
Ingram Micro Cloud is also proud to have become a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP—a certification that enables us to further assist partners in growing their business. This certification enables Ingram Micro to extend services and expand their offerings portfolio—to drive growth, education and support to the reseller community.
The unprecedented circumstances around the recent COVID-19 virus have thrown everyone for a loop—especially small to medium-size businesses. To help support partners through this crisis, Ingram Micro introduced KickStart Financing opportunities for partners, which extends $110 million in additional credit, waives financial services fees and offers exclusive payment terms.
