SkyKick and ConnectWise Integrate Products to Make Microsoft Managed Service Providers More Successful

New collaboration increases partner efficiency and profitability by enabling them to migrate and backup Microsoft Office 365 customers, and manage their IT presence in one place

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2016) - SkyKick (skykick.com) and ConnectWise (connectwise.com) announced today at the ConnectWise IT Nation conference product integration to enable partners to more efficiently deliver value to their Microsoft Office 365 customers. SkyKick is a global provider of cloud management software for information technology (IT) solution partners, and ConnectWise is a company that transforms how technology solution providers successfully build, manage and grow their businesses. By leveraging application program interfaces (APIs) through the SkyKick Developer program and the ConnectWise Invent program, SkyKick Cloud Backup and SkyKick Cloud Migration Suites will now be accessible inside the ConnectWise CloudConsole.

"This collaboration is a prime example of how SkyKick and ConnectWise are always innovating to help make our partners more successful," said Chris Rayner, vice president of product management, Skykick. "Many SkyKick partners already are ConnectWise partners, so having our products available within ConnectWise means they can now get all their business management needs met in one place -- making customer cloud service management more efficient than ever."

SkyKick Cloud Backup provides cloud-to-cloud backup, unlimited storage and one-click restore of lost Office 365 data, and the SkyKick Cloud Migration Suites allow IT consultants, system integrators, managed service providers, value-added resellers and other IT partners to automate an entire Office 365 migration project from initial sales to project completion. ConnectWise CloudConsole is a management, monitoring, and billing tool for Office 365 and Azure. SkyKick is the first independent software vendor that ConnectWise is making available via its CloudConsole.

Craig Fulton, vice president of product, ConnectWise, agrees that both companies share a similar vision when it comes to finding ways for their partners to build more successful cloud businesses. "More deeply integrating our technologies makes perfect sense and creates an experience that enables partners to more efficiently deliver their cloud and managed services offerings."
