Intergen secures exclusive Tier 1 Microsoft CSP status

MEDIA RELEASE

Intergen secures exclusive Tier 1 Microsoft CSP status


2nd October 2015

Microsoft New Zealand has named technology company Intergen as a Tier 1 Cloud Solution Provider.

“This is a major coup for Intergen, and a public endorsement of the breadth and quality of our services,” says John Bessey, Intergen’s Director of Marketing and Client Development.

Cloud Solutions are central to Microsoft’s growth strategy. Their CEO, Satya Nadella, has said Microsoft is absolutely focused on “Empowering people and organizations to achieve more". Intergen is proud to be partnering with Microsoft in that goal and has evolved to leverage and use Microsoft’s cloud solutions across all clients where appropriate.

To achieve Tier 1 status, Intergen had to demonstrate strong capabilities across four areas: its services business model, scale, support services and infrastructure, and clear, customer-focused invoicing.

"Intergen’s proven history of helping customers transform their business is now enhanced through their appointment to CSP status. They can now offer Microsoft Cloud services and add additional business value through packaging their own services alongside and manage the customer experience from billing to provisioning and support.” Says Brent Kendrick, Microsoft New Zealand’s Director Small and Midmarket Solutions & Partners.

Tier 1 partners directly manage their entire Microsoft cloud customer lifecycle and are entrusted by Microsoft to provide expert guidance on their existing and emerging services. Given the rapidly changing technology landscape, this ability is important for New Zealand businesses. Customers benefit from having a single point of contact for all Microsoft Cloud Services and having someone close to their business advising them on the best options.


The winners, ultimately, are Intergen customers, says John Bessey. “It allows clients to easily source all their IT services from one provider, regardless of their size or where they are in their lifecycle.

It also gives customers the kind of service they really want. Studies show that two out of three customers expect to purchase most of their cloud services from a single vendor and 84% want to be able to trust one vendor as their Cloud Service Provider.
“The CSP status allows us to simplify how our clients consume cloud services – from one partner on one invoice. It also allows us to build IP into cloud solutions which can be sold across multiple clients, helping our clients get faster time to value on their business solutions investments.”
