Ingram Micro Cloud Introduces New Marketplace-as-a-Service Model
Reseller partners can launch their own customizable marketplaces with significantly lower total cost
Irvine, Calif.—June 17, 2021 – Ingram Micro Cloud, operator of one of the world’s largest mar-ketplaces of cloud solutions and services for the channel business, today announced its new Marketplace-as-a-Service model to help reseller partners fully automate and scale the next step of their cloud businesses.
The best-in-class offering enables Ingram Micro Cloud channel reseller partners to launch their very own cloud marketplace and grow with streamlined cloud subscription management and bill-ing, helping provide an accelerated path to commercialize and sell their products and services.
The benefits are wide-ranging for reseller partners, including the flexibility to scale and serve more customers, a faster time to market with automation of service delivery, billing, and invoic-ing, and 360-degree visibility on product margins, pricing structure and bundling. Moreover, re-seller partners will have the ability to inherit Ingram Micro Cloud’s product catalog on their cus-tomizable storefront, increasing its cross-selling opportunities with their own intellectual property and services.
Additionally, the Marketplace-as-a-Service model enables reseller partners to establish their cus-tomer-facing storefront, at a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than what is cur-rently possible.
“By combining our powerful marketplace technology, industry expertise and comprehensive product catalog, we’ve achieved a world-class Marketplace-as-a-Service that we expect will fundamentally transform our reseller partners’ cloud businesses,” said Victor Baez, vice presi-dent of Ingram Micro Cloud. “Rather than taking a one-size-fits all approach, Ingram Micro Cloud continues to add features and functionalities for its reseller partners, to keep pace with the dy-namic needs and opportunities of the channel.” The Marketplace-as-a-Service model will enable resellers to grow at scale without worrying about the underlying technology.
The Marketplace-as-a-Service model will also continue to offer reseller partners with a high level of flexibility and automation through integrating with their existing tools and systems, using Mar-ketplace API and other platform integration capabilities.
