Microsoft cloud services are cornerstones that your end customers have come to rely on. It’s hard to win new clients without basic productivity services like Office 365 or infrastructure services like Azure. But, as you’re likely well aware, there’s typically not much margin to be made selling these solutions—especially Office 365.
While these solutions might serve as a recognized foundation on which to build a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, they’re not going to keep the lights on. To find profitable growth selling these solutions, the quote-to-cash cycle needs to be as efficient as possible, and you’ll need to bundle other higher-margin services with these foundational services.
