SherWeb has launched a new Office 365 offer that adds security, backup, and eLearning training services to selected Office 365 plans at no extra cost.
The goal of the new offer is to help SherWeb partners address learning challenges and security risks in Office 365 in order to gain a profitable foothold in their prospective markets. SherWeb aims to provide more flexibility and value for end customers than standard plans, and to give MSPs a competitive edge to create more opportunities and boost margins.
“This is the new core Office 365 bundle from us,” said Jason Brown, SherWeb’s vice president of products, in prepared remarks. “We see this as an evolution of Office 365 for partners in adding more value and providing them with the opportunity to create new products and services, and complement their managed services business. So that they can grow and evolve with their customers’ demands.”
The new Office 365 offer includes: Office Protect, 1-click threat protection using best practice security settings, Online Backup, 1GB per user pooled across an organization of backup services to safeguard critical business data including Office 365 mailboxes, and lastly QuickHelp, an eLearning platform geared to increase Office 365 user adoption and productivity across an organization.
Resellers can also upgrade to the Smart Bundle for full and ongoing access to Office Protect, Online Backup and QuickHelp. The Smart Bundle aims to enable MSPs to continue to build even more recurring monthly revenue.
Customized SKUs like the offer announced this week are part of SherWeb's drive to help differentiate itself from other cloud distributors by helping partners sell more and grow faster.
