ThinPrint Launches Its Cloud Partner Program for Microsoft CSPs to Easily Integrate Printing-as-a-Service
New Partner Model Enables Cloud Service Providers to Easily Add and Monetize Professional Cloud Printing Services for Customers
BERLIN/DENVER/LAS VEGAS – ThinPrint, the leading print management expert and selected Microsoft launch partner, today announced the launch of the ThinPrint Partner Program for Microsoft CSPs at Microsoft Inspire in Las Vegas (booth #1405). With ThinPrint’s ezeep cloud printing solution selected as Microsoft’s preferred printing approach for Windows Virtual Desktop, the new partner model is designed for cloud service providers to easily integrate ThinPrint’s ezeep for Windows Virtual Desktop into their services portfolio.
Printing is evolving, with customers increasingly turning to cloud services to keep pace with today’s business environments. However, when programs are moved to the cloud, printing is often replaced by a simple PDF download and the rest is left to the user to figure out on their own. What seems acceptable for proof of concepts results in significant effort for line-of-business applications. ThinPrint’s ezeep is an innovative cloud printing service that ensures printing remains simple, fast and secure, even in complex environments with multiple devices.
The ThinPrint Cloud Partner Program, which is being presented at Microsoft Inspire 2019 in Las Vegas, addresses this issue by ensuring CSPs can easily integrate ThinPrint’s ezeep solution into their technology and business workflows. In addition to the seamless integration of the ezeep software, a simple contract regulates the framework conditions for the purchase of services and allows dynamic, consumption-oriented billing.
“Our goal is to enable Microsoft cloud service providers to easily add professional printing support to their services while ensuring that their customers continue to receive one, easy to understand, consolidated invoice for all the services they use,” said Frank Hoffmann, ThinPrint CFO.
Partners who are not cloud service providers or for whom the sale of cloud services is not part of their core business can use the ThinPrint Affiliate Program as an alternative to benefit from the sale of ThinPrint Cloud Services.
