As a result, Ingram Micro channel partners get a slew of new features. They include real-time visibility into Azure billing and new Microsoft NCE billing configurations that simplify and speed subscription management.
Specifically, the Azure usage billing reports aim to save partners time on reconciling billing. This happens via accurate cost visibility, self-run periodic reports and real-time billion projection. Furthermore, new and soon-to-come NCE billing configurations make it easier for partners to schedule, co-term and automate subscriptions. Finally, advanced NCE automation features bring real-time, on-demand visibility to NCE promotions. That way, partners can activate new business faster and streamline purchasing. Ultimately, the goal is to deliver a better experience to their teams and customers.
Victor Baez is senior vice president for Ingram Micro Cloud.

“With these new and expanding Microsoft-centric capabilities and integrations, we are giving our channel partners what they asked for — solving for complexity by enabling them to work within the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to land, manage and expand their Microsoft business faster and easier,” said Baez. “They asked, and we listened and took action to make it work.”
Microsoft’s New Commerce Experience is the company’s new subscription, per-seat model. The model, which launched in 2019 with Azure, recently expanded for customers that use Office 365, Microsoft 365, Windows 365, the Power Platform and Dynamics 365.
