As Microsoft unveils a version of its iconic Office 365 software suite for iPads, Daisy Distribution has made the service available to its O2 partners and has been holding a series of engaging partner training days to promote its benefits.
Within the sessions, which have already seen more than 45 partners taking part, partners have been able to learn in detail about the software’s advantages, how it works, how it integrates with their O2 customers and how it can help these organisations work smarter.
The meetings sit within a wider campaign from the Ipswich-based firm to enhance its partners’ knowledge of the Office 365 package, and have therefore been accessible to the whole channel.
Alongside the launch of Office 365 through O2 devices, Daisy Distribution has also offered partners that take an O2 Nokia Lumia variant device a free year’s subscription voucher for Microsoft Lync, to offer to an end customer.
The offer, which began on 1st April, has been created to enable businesses to realise the various collaborative and communication tools Lync possesses, including HD video conferencing and instant messaging features, and pass these on to their end customers.
Julien Parven, Marketing Director of Daisy Distribution, said: “As the Office 365 suite becomes more readily available on even more devices, we believe that the cloud facilities it brings are only going to increase in popularity. Now that we are also able to offer the package through O2, we have been running a series of training days designed to enable partners to effectively sell the benefits of Office 365 into their end customers.
“The bundled Lync offer will allow partners to see for themselves, first hand, how beneficial the service can actually be. We envisage that having exposure to the software will encourage them to come back at some point in the near future and take out the full Microsoft Office 365 package.”
