CSP: It’s more than just a licensing program

For those of you who are unfamiliar with CSP, the Cloud Solution Provider program was designed by Microsoft to enable their partners, such as risual, to directly manage a client’s cloud lifecycle. This means that it enables risual to provide our clients with Microsoft cloud subscriptions such as Office 365, Azure, Dynamics 365 and more. This isn’t all the CSP program is good for, however.

A great benefit of CSP is that clients can get the same flexibility as you would get from Microsoft directly, only you will get a monthly invoice for your subscriptions and services to help spread the cost and make your investments more manageable. Along with this, risual clients also receive 24/7 support, meaning that this is more than just licensing!

In addition to the flexibility you can get from spreading your costs, purchasing your cloud solutions via the CSP program also ensures that you avoid overspending. With the CSP program, you only pay for what you use meaning that it is entirely scalable to your needs. If, for example, you have 700 Office 365 licenses and wanted to add an extra 50 for a particular project, this is possible with the CSP program. Then you could drop back down to 700 if you no longer required the extra licenses. This is an example of how risual can tailor cloud solutions for each individual client using the CSP program.

From the moment you purchase a subscription, risual become your first point of call. We will be on hand to answer any of your questions and help you with any of your queries.
