Microsoft CSP | Indirect | Direct

What Is It and How Does It Work?

We know how

Grey Matter is an Indirect Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and can help you to grow your software business.

CSP Indirect vs CSP Direct

Via CSP Indirect, you can purchase Microsoft cloud services, licenses and subscriptions for your customers from Grey Matter - this includes Office 365, Azure and Dynamics 365 subscriptions. We can help with your licensing, provisioning, deployment, support and billing.

With CSP Direct you can purchase these subscriptions for your company’s use. Either way we are here to help.

What are the benefits of working with Grey Matter as an indirect CSP partner?

Go-to-market quickly and easily with minimal capital investment

Via Grey Matter's CSP portal and online marketplace, GMCirrus™, you can offer your customers support and billing without having to invest in costly infrastructure. Delivered to your customers by us, it leaves you to focus on building out your customer offerings.

Easily managed commerce portal

Through our CSP portal GMCirrus™ you can easily buy and remove Office 365 licenses for your customers. You can keep track of your customers' Azure consumption, and via the Azure portal you can provision new VM's and Azure resources for them, allowing you to take customer orders round the clock.

Flexible billing and bigger discounts

We offer the flexible monthly and annual billing models of CSP and are also able to offer price savings against buying directly from Microsoft.

Microsoft recognition and rebates

You get full revenue recognition for your purchases with Microsoft to count towards competencies and if you have an eligible competency you will also be entitled to rebates directly from Microsoft.

Best in class support

Our technical engineers provide you with support for all the cloud services Grey Matter provide. At a minimum, our Service Level Agreements state we will respond to any customer request within two UK business hours and all customers are given 24/7 access to our Self-Service Portal.

Licensing advice and Account management

Along with these extra benefits you will receive dedicated account management and expert licensing advice.

As a Microsoft Cloud Partner, we are here with the tools, expertise and experience to support you on the road to success.
