Socius Introduces Socius One Cloud, Offering Cloud Services to Clients through Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program

DUBLIN, Ohio, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Socius, an award-winning business technology and consulting company, announces participation in the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program as a Tier 1 CSP Partner with a newly branded practice area, the Socius One Cloud. Through the Socius One Cloud, Socius will continue to offer private hosting environments along with expanded offerings for public and hybrid cloud hosting environments built on the Microsoft Azure platform. In addition, Socius will leverage the CSP program to offer Office 365 licensing and implementation services in conjunction with other Microsoft solutions, including the full portfolio of Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM systems and Business Intelligence solutions. As a Tier 1 CSP Partner, Socius helps customers and affiliated resellers with consolidated license billing, onboarding assistance, Level 1 support, and customer lifecycle management, among other benefits.

With the company’s newly branded Socius One Cloud offering, Socius can transition its clients’ current Office 365 licenses from other reseller programs, like Microsoft’s Open, EA and Advisor programs, to the Socius license agreement.

“By participating in the CSP program we are able to focus more of our attention on our clients’ business needs and less of our time on managing multiple vendors,” said Lance Knepper, Socius One Cloud’s Practice Area Director. “The same benefit applies to our clients. They are able to save time and streamline their vendor management by having all of their Microsoft licenses managed under the Socius One Cloud.”

“Over the last year, we have seen growth across all practice lines, and in particular, the Socius One Cloud,” added Jeff Geisler, Socius’ Chief Executive Officer. “Through Socius One Cloud, we offer comprehensive, future-forward solutions that make it easy for our clients take advantage of the Microsoft productivity and business management tools that aid in their digital transformation.”

“The proliferation of the cloud is probably the biggest technology advancement we’ve seen in some time, and it will have the broadest impact on both business and individual users,” Geisler explained. “From a business perspective, it may seem that the cloud is just a new way to purchase software or access data, but to really make the cloud reach its total potential you need to think in broader terms — not just licensing, but about security and how to utilize your staffing more effectively. Then you can focus your resources on more strategic initiatives for your businesses.”

Socius has been providing Office 365 to clients through its Socius One Cloud practice since 2011. Through the CSP program, Socius can align clients’ Office 365 licenses with those of other Socius solutions, serving as a single cloud license vendor for business needs, including finance, operations, sales and marketing, analytics, collaboration, and productivity.
