ePlus Joins the Amazon Web Services Marketplace Consulting Partner Offers Program
HERNDON, VA – November 29, 2018 – ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUS) today announced its participation in the Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) Marketplace Consulting Partner Offers program. ePlus can now sell software solutions on behalf of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) directly to customers on AWS Marketplace. Many customers prefer to purchase software solutions through AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partners and this capability allows ePlus to automate the procurement of software and services solutions to its AWS customers.
Now customers can subscribe to Consulting Partner Offers from ePlus through their AWS Marketplace management console and benefit from dramatically shorter procurement cycles, flexible consumption and contract models, and consolidated billing.
“Our customers have told us they want to purchase software solutions from their trusted APN Consulting Partners, but via AWS Marketplace, which brings integrated discovery, provisioning, billing, and tagging,” said Dave McCann, vice president, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “By early participation in our new AWS Marketplace Consulting Private Offers Program, ePlus has demonstrated its commitment to providing our joint customers with a simpler and flexible purchasing and billing experience designed for the cloud, and is helping customers transform the acquisition and provisioning of software and services through one simple streamlined process that saves time, cost, and increases innovation.”
“We are extremely excited to be an early adopter in the new AWS Marketplace Consulting Partner Offers Program,” said Justin Mescher, vice president of engineering at ePlus. “Our customers are adopting AWS services, and the ability to easily provision strategic software solutions from AWS Marketplace is a key enabler to their business. This new program from AWS allows ePlus to integrate best-of-breed solutions with our expert professional and consulting services to better support the cloud environments that so many of our customers are considering and building—and empowering them to speed time to market and drive business outcomes.”
