ConnectWise Announces Enhancements to CloudConsole
Tuesday, May 10, 2016
ConnectWise has announced additional capabilities for ConnectWise CloudConsole, a tool that eases the management, monitoring and billing of cloud services. The new enhancements provide ConnectWise partners with expanded options to purchase Microsoft Office 365; improved reporting, billing and invoicing; and easier access via multiple ConnectWise screens.
"This set of upgrades is focused on giving our partners improved flexibility, more efficiency and increased opportunities as they manage their growing cloud services," said Craig Fulton, general manager, ConnectWise business suite.
Highlights of the latest CloudConsole release include:
The latest enhancements, which dramatically reduce the time required to provision and procure Office 365 licenses as well as bill for cloud services, are designed to increase profitability and efficiency in the cloud for CloudConsole users.
- New purchasing and provisioning options — Partners now have the ability to purchase and provision Office 365 licenses from any authorized vendor.
- Improved reporting — Partners now have more ways to customize reporting with greater data granularity.
- Customized billing and invoicing — Partners now have extensive flexibility in how they bill and invoice clients.
- Better access — Partners are now able to access CloudConsole from both "company" and "contact" ConnectWise screens.
Fulton said the response to the multi-tenancy cloud management solution has been phenomenal since the solution launched in February.
"In just under three months, more than 514 partners managing close to one million seats of Office 365 have chosen CloudConsole to give them a competitive edge and to streamline operations as their clients transition from on-premise systems to the cloud," Fulton said. "The cloud movement is real and businesses that want to keep their customers must be able to provide cloud services as part of their portfolio of offerings. ConnectWise is committed to being there with them every step of the way."
