Distributors

Flexiant has learned to think deeply about how the market might use the solutions that we create but even we are surprised at times by the extent to which our software supports complex, multi-level channel models that we had not envisaged.

We are working with a number of distributors who sell digital solutions through n-tier reseller channels and then on to end customers. The compute, storage and networking topology for these businesses is ideal for cloud adoption.

Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator is unique in its ability to help distributors define, meter and bill cloud services across an unlimited number of multi-level, go to market organisations. As a result, we are witnessing increasing demand, from distributors and resellers of third party solutions, for the use of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator as the primary tool for realising the benefits of cloud deployment across their complex range of multi-level market relationships.

At a time of economic challenge it is vital that distributors gain competitive differentiation. Using the power of the cloud and the agility of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator helps achieve this differentiation.
