Parallels, a Managed Microsoft Global ISV Partner and Gold Certified Partner, supports ordering, provisioning, and billing of hundreds of cloud services, providing service providers, administrators, and end users with thousands of time-saving features. Building on our long-term relationship with Microsoft, we have created an integrated solution to help service providers quickly bring the new Office 365 services to market.
Our solution includes Parallels Automation software and built-in support for Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite. By using Parallels Automation software, you can create and deploy Office 365 packages quickly and reliably — and reduce time to market from many months to a few weeks.
Microsoft Office 365 syndication is limited to service providers contracted with Microsoft to syndicate the service. This integrated automation is available to Microsoft Partners that are approved by, and participating in, the Microsoft Office 365 Syndication program. If you would like to deliver these services but are not participating in this Microsoft program, please contact us to discuss alternative means of rapidly and profitably delivering Microsoft cloud services to your customers.
The integrated solution from Parallels and Microsoft enables you to increase profits by cross-selling and up-selling services that are in high demand from small business. With Parallels Automation’s maturity and scalability, you can rapidly complete large-scale Office 365 roll-outs — and with the software’s flexibility, you’ll be able to tailor the customer experience to meet your business needs.
Parallels worked closely with Microsoft to develop a deployment integration using the Parallels Automation SaaS Service Module — which delivers Office 365 as it does other SaaS services. You can bundle the Office 365 services with other cloud services you offer. The end customer purchases the service from you and is billed by you. Although the Office 365 services are hosted in Microsoft’s data centers, other services you choose to include in the bundle may be hosted by you or syndicated from other sources. With Parallels Automation managing the delivery and billing of the services you market, your customers receive unified bills from you. As far as your customers are concerned, they are purchasing the services from you — their trusted Microsoft Partner service provider.
