Technology services distributor and master agent Intelisys Communications has partnered with SADA Systems, a cloud solutions and service provider, in a new deal to give its channel partners access to Microsoft’s cloud solutions portfolio.

The partnership allows Intelisys’s partner community to access the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program through SADA Systems, providing partners with the ability to sell both Microsoft solutions and managed services. SADA Systems was chosen specifically by Microsoft to work with Intelisys on the partnership based on its history as a Microsoft National Solutions Provider, according to the announcement.

“The vast majority of businesses utilize Microsoft software, in some capacity, every day,” said Andrew Pryfogle, senior vice president of Cloud Transformation at Intelisys, in a statement. “The difference that SADA brings is not the licensing, but the support experience that allows customers to leverage Microsoft technology to solve problems for their businesses.”

Intelisys Sales Partners can now sell all of Microsoft’s cloud solutions to customers, with the option of selling a value-added package that includes SADA’s managed services and support with the product licenses. In return, SADA has agreed to become a sponsor of Intelisys Cloud Services University to increase their cloud expertise.

Microsoft recently named SADA Systems as its 2015 Microsoft Partner of the Year for Packaged Cloud Solutions and was also named as No. 209 on the MSPmentor 501 list. It ranked as No. 167 among the Top 200 North American Managed Services Providers.

“SADA is very excited to be partnering with Intelisys, expanding our sales channel to offer best in class cloud solutions along with SADA’s consultative and deployment services on a national level,” stated Tony Safoian, CEO and president of SADA Systems. “We see the partnership between Intelisys and SADA Systems as a key component to our business strategy to help even more organizations make their transition to the cloud a hassle-free experience, ultimately providing them with even more opportunities to innovate and collaborate.”
