ScanSource has opened another route to market for partners to deliver cloud services including Microsoft, Symantec and Acronis with the acquisition of Bristol-based intY and its CASCADE cloud services distribution platform.
intY CEO Craig Joseph and its 65 employees will join ScanSource.
"The combination of ScanSource’s scale, the depth of supplier relationships through ScanSource’s 2016 acquisition of Intelisys, and intY’s CASCADE technology and data insights provides partners in the US, UK, Europe, and Brazil with capabilities to build their recurring revenue business," said Mike Baur, Chairman and CEO of ScanSource.
“CASCADE serves as the next piece in our continuing digital strategy and provides partners with critical capabilities, including software provisioning, data analytics, seat management, billing and support, so partners can sell more strategic cloud solutions and build strong recurring revenue practices."
ScanSource intends to introduce language options for CASCADE, beginning with Portuguese.
