Kurmi Software, the award-winning UC provisioning software provider, today announced a global go-to-market co-selling agreement with Microsoft. The expansion of its partnership with Microsoft to Co-sell ready status means the companies will work together to accelerate the adoption of Kurmi Software’s market-leading Unified Communications Administration Management solution.
Currently available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Kurmi Software provides an end-to-end provisioning platform that simplifies and automates management for Microsoft Teams and Teams Phone. The new co-selling agreement represents a major evolution of the strategic relationship between the two companies as organizations look for more efficient ways to migrate from legacy UC systems or deploy Microsoft Teams. In addition to being listed on the Microsoft catalog, Co-sell ready status will drive deeper collaboration and go-to-market momentum with Kurmi Software working alongside Microsoft’s 7,000 account executives to roll-out automated provisioning through shared customer roadmaps
Chloe Rouillac, Partner Development Manager, Microsoft, said, “Companies building innovative cloud solutions such as Kurmi Software have never been more important to the world today. With the continued acceleration of digital transformation, every organization, small or large, in every industry across the globe, will require cloud infrastructure and services to power their business.”
Florent Pelissier, ISV and Partnership Director, Microsoft, said, “As customer needs for cloud solutions exponentially increase, so do the opportunities for ISVs to connect with partners and customers across the Microsoft Cloud and commercial marketplace. We are delighted to enter into this co-sell agreement with Kurmi Software.”
Alongside its existing private cloud and on premises offerings, Kurmi Software launched Kurmi as a Service (KaaS) in early 2022 to meet significant demand from customers wanting more flexibility and less hassle of managing multiple platforms. Kurmi Software’s hosted solution delivers even faster access to automated administration of enterprise communications, and with its most recent release has enhanced its capabilities with the launch of a new Graph API connector to complement the existing PowerShell connector.
“This latest milestone in Kurmi Software’s long-standing strategic partnership with Microsoft is based on our successful co-sell volume to date and is testament to both the market need that Kurmi answers, and the collaboration efforts between our team and Microsoft,” explained Sylvain Mogade, Microsoft Global Alliance Manager, Kurmi Software. “With Kurmi, organizations have all the tools they need to streamline and optimize users’ day-to-day administrative tasks across their enterprise communications and collaboration systems. Through our expanded partnership with Microsoft, we are further enabling the streamlined and frictionless adoption and integration of Microsoft Teams Phone capabilities with our market-leading UC management and automation provisioning solution. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Microsoft.”
