IT Consumption Model Fuses Tools, Processes, Resources and Technology
for Partner Enablement and Growth
Oldsmar Fla. – (Marketwired – March 3, 2015) – Global Convergence, Inc., a U.S.-based value-added distributor with a full, channel-driven IT services portfolio, announced today the launch of its new Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS) offering. IT nFusion optimizes and reduces IT expenditures by leveraging pooled resources for professional and managed services integrated with hardware, software, or licensing components into a single, easy-to-manage solution with an operational expense payment structure.
IT nFusion offers a value-priced, variable cost resource model with on-demand logistics and technical support to satisfy essential customer product and service requirements regardless of the IT solution and specialty or niche technology skill needed. Solution Providers can easily enter or expand their existing portfolio offerings with managed or professional services without capital investment to meet the growing demand for businesses to access next generation technology and managed services on a monthly subscription basis.
“IT nFusion equips our Solution Provider Community for ongoing success and growth by enabling them to deliver a complete, OPEX-based IT solution with broader market reach for their end customers,” said Jim Bradshaw, Chairman and CEO at Global Convergence. “IT nFusion can effectively shorten the sales cycle while accelerating the adoption of emerging technologies for their customer’s that require a technology refresh or that have complex, distributed networks.”
The new model essentially rolls up multiple elements of hardware, software, licensing, professional services, managed services and even manufacturer maintenance and support plans together with skilled resource localization and dynamic sourcing underpinned with an operational vs capital expense structure. Another key differentiator is that GCI offers IT nFusion to its Solution Provider community using its own global cadre of certified, industry-trained and experienced technicians that are available onsite or remotely to help solution providers ensure a positive customer experience.
