Synnex has launched its technology-as-a-service (TaaS) offering to the channel in partnership with Microsoft, Lenovo and HP across Australia.
Terms of the roll-out will allow partners to offer packaged solutions spanning hardware, software, licensing, managed services and cloud subscriptions, through "one single monthly bill, one log in, one payment and one check out".
Furthermore, the channel will also have the support of Managed Services Finance, which enables partners to finance services from a minimum value of $1,000 for periods from 12 up to 60 months, while receiving a two per cent rebate on the value of the approved finance.
"We are thrilled to extend our holistic end-to-end solutions model with TaaS; allowing partners to differentiate themselves amongst all other MSPs who are trying to achieve a common goal," said Darren Tan, product marketing director of Synnex Australia.
Specifically, the finance option is designed to make the complete device management lifecycle "flexible and easier to achieve" for partners across the country.
"We have achieved a global first to integrate finance approval and settlement automation in a distribution partner platform," added Michael Tea, ecommerce and cloud services general manager at Synnex Australia.
"This gives our resellers extreme flexibility to put hardware, software, licensing, services and cloud under a single monthly services bill."
In partnership with service provider Renew IT, Synnex will also provide lifecycle IT solutions which include a buyback program, customisable pre-deployment, deployment and end of life and lease services.
According to Tea, this buyback program can be activated at any point in a contract, accompanied by data destruction services that ensure data privacy and protection as well as the proper disposal of equipment.
The launch comes weeks after Synnex announced a partnership with TeamViewer in Australia.
As reported by ARN, the agreement aims to increase cloud-based offerings for managed service providers (MSPs) locally, tapping into expertise across secure remote desktop access and support.
