Microsoft CSP | Indirect

Indirect CSP enables you to easily purchase Microsoft subscriptions for your customers from Grey Matter and help grow your software business by helping you to combine your licensing, provisioning, deployment, support and billing, all within one simple model.

As well as expert licensing advice and technical support, a Grey Matter Indirect CSP partner will also benefit from:

Cloud subscription management portal

Take your customers’ orders around the clock. Buy, remove and manage your Microsoft subscriptions easily, anytime. Keep track of your customers’ Azure consumption, provision new VMs and Azure resources for them. Find out more here. We don’t just have Microsoft products and services available on the platform, we’re adding other vendors too. For instance, we have ReSharper and Barracuda Essentials for Office 365.

Technical support

Our Microsoft certified technical engineers provide support for all Microsoft cloud services. You’ll gain access to our 9-to-5 Cloud Assure support service at no additional cost when you join our CSP subscription program, and you’ll have the option to uplift to 24/7 if required.

Some of our technical services available include: Office 365 and Azure migrations, DevOps services, backup and disaster recovery, Azure health check, helpdesk and more.

Licensing advice and account management

We want to make sure you get the most out of your IT spend. Our dedicated account management and expert licensing advice will support you throughout your journey, and we are here to help you with any queries you have. Our expert licensing advice is based on over 35 years of experience in the software industry.

We are a Microsoft Gold Partner, and we also work with over 400 other partners covering a range of technologies: security, design and media, productivity, backup and disaster recovery, network monitoring, components, performance, deployment and much more! See our Partners page to see just a handful of the great companies we work with. Through working closely with these partners, we can also often offer competitive pricing.

Microsoft recognition and rebates

You receive full revenue recognition for your purchases with Microsoft. These will count towards competencies. Furthermore, if you have an eligible competency you will also be entitled to rebates directly from Microsoft. We’ll keep you up to date on all the incentives available.

Microsoft call out days and Marketing-as-a-service

We understand the different challenges that you face when taking your solution to market. We’ve given you the platform to sell your solution. Now we can also give you the specific tools that you need to effectively communicate your value proposition to your customers. This could be in the form of focused training and call out days to help your sales team pinpoint key opportunities or providing your team with white-label collateral such as email templates and datasheets, or even a bespoke marketing consultancy session.

Once you feel confident, we can also help you to get your solution onto Microsoft AppSource and the Azure Marketplace to reach a wider customer base.

Workshops and Events

We host a wide range of free events on a regular basis across the UK. We offer them to our partners (and your customers) as a chance for knowledge expansion and networking. Some of our regular events include workshops and live labs. If you’re part of our CSP program and are interested in hosting your own events for your customers, then we can provide you with any support you need to get event planning started. To find out more about the events available, sign up to our newsletter or visit our events page.
