ANS Celebrates certification as a Microsoft Tier 1 Cloud Solution Provider
ANS are delighted to announce that they have been certified as one of the few Microsoft Tier 1 Cloud Solution Providers (CSP’s) within the UK. The Tier 1 CSP program is invitation-only and enables ANS to directly manage the entire Microsoft Cloud customer lifecycle. ANS will now be able to utilise dedicated in-product tools to directly provision, manage and support customer subscriptions.
The strict program requires ANS to have proven capabilities in providing technical support for the Azure Platform on a 24x7x365 basis. To join the program, ANS also had to demonstrate the financial stability required to transact cloud services directly with customers who operate without an Enterprise Agreement – effectively managing the customer’s relationship in its entirety from both a technical and commercial perspective.
Speaking of the program, ANS’ CTO at ANS, Andy Barrow said,
“Here at ANS we pride ourselves on employing exceptional expertise and delivering unbeatable products, solutions and services. The recent Microsoft CSP program acceptance cements our status as a leading and trusted Cloud solutions provider, giving our customers the confidence, support and skills they need to keep innovating.”
The program will enable customers to benefit from the ability to easily purchase cloud products, services and operational support with their subscription in one predictable bill. As well as having proven 24x7x365 support capabilities, ANS offer more robust SLA’s, independent expertise and advanced billing intelligence. Beyond the inherent benefits of the cloud, customers will now have more frequent interactions with ANS which will ultimately serve to deepen relationships.
