SurePact, Queensland’s award-winning SaaS solution that provides a 360 degree suite of risk identification modules for the delivery of grants, projects and contracts, has become the first Asia Pacific Microsoft ISV partner to launch on Microsoft’s Commercial Marketplace.
Scaling for growth is a significant challenge, but with the tremendous backing and support of the Microsoft for Startups Program, the creation of SurePact’s global footprint has become a reality.
”We are absolutely thrilled with the outstanding Microsoft support that SurePact has received in becoming both IP Co-sell Ready and Commercial Marketplace Transact,” SurePact Founder and CEO Megan Avard said.
“This further confirms the respect and response SurePact is receiving in such a short space of time. We are appreciative of the opportunity to make our SaaS platform more readily available to those innovative organizations focused on driving successful digital transformation.
“The Microsoft team were excited to inform us that SurePact is the first Microsoft ISV customer to go live for Microsoft’s commercial marketplace in Australia and New Zealand. It’s a massive achievement for both SurePact and Microsoft’s support team in Sydney.”
The Microsoft Azure Marketplace is an online store for buying and selling cloud solutions certified to run on Azure, connecting companies seeking innovative, cloud-based solutions with partners who have developed ready-to-use solutions. The availability of SurePact on the Marketplace makes it easier for established Azure customers to purchase and use this industry-leading platform.
Tom Davis, Senior Director of Microsoft for Startups, said SurePact has wasted no time making an impact.
“In less than five months of being Co-sell Ready, SurePact has already collaborated with multiple Microsoft account teams,” he said.
“Recently they took part in a Microsoft Industry Partner Discover Day where they presented their solution to our national sales teams.
“From a distribution perspective, SurePact has published their solution to the Microsoft Commercial Marketplace enabling customers to quickly transact and engage with their solution. We look forward to partnering with them in the months ahead.”
SurePact CEO Megan Avard added that as customers embrace the scalability of the cloud, the availability of SurePact in the Azure Marketplace is directly aligned with the company’s goal to make its software accessible and easy to consume.
“Availability in the Azure Marketplace now provides our customers an easy entry point to quickly scale automation initiatives,” she said.
“And by quickly, we mean a few minutes, rather than hours, for a small implementation – or days for a large enterprise installation. This is a gamechanger for customers who are invested in Azure.”
