Vuzion will make it easier for resellers, service providers and ISVs across the UK & Europe to take advantage of the massive opportunity and long term value presented by switching to cloud services

London, UK – March 23rd, 2016 — Cobweb Solutions, the number one independent cloud hosting provider in Europe, today announced the launch of Vuzion – a new value-add Cloud Aggregator focused on resellers, services providers and ISVs.

Vuzion is the brand that ties together Cobweb’s portfolio of cloud offerings and services, and is the beginning of a new era of partner orientation for Cobweb. Vuzion offers the first UK programme to cover a full spectrum of offerings across the cloud platform, partner ecosystem and helping partners build long term business success.

The time for Vuzion is now. Cloud services and Microsoft’s CSP program are driving a significant disruption across the IT channel. Cobweb was born in the cloud and has 20 years’ heritage as a cloud services provider that it is evolving with the transition to a value-add cloud aggregator business.  These 20 years of experience and expertise will be packaged up for both traditional IT resellers, SIs and ISVs to help them make the successful transition to building a long term profitable business reselling cloud services.  Vuzion partners will be supported with knowledge on how to build a sustainable cloud business, successfully manage the customer lifecycle and speed up go-to-market time and growth rates. Partners can focus on building their own value add on top of cloud services whilst being confident their business model is future proof.

Michael Frisby, newly appointed Managing Director of Vuzion and Cobweb Solutions said, “Vuzion helps partners drive business success. Unlike other cloud aggregators and service providers we are focused on building long-term sustainable relationships, proactively helping our partners build capabilities to drive sustainable profitable growth, rather than being just a marketplace to transact through. We provide integrated solutions instead of individual services and help traditional IT partners gain real value from the new and growing cloud landscape. Vuzion brings together more than any other cloud aggregator or CSP in the UK.”

Clare Barclay, Microsoft UK’s General Manager for Small and Midmarket Solutions & Partners added “Cobweb has been a longstanding member of the partner community. Having used its CSP status to bring a unique offering to small and medium businesses, it’s exciting to see Cobweb turning its attention to bringing even more value to both Microsoft and the wider VAR and service provider community.”

As part of the Vuzion smart ecosystem, partners will be able to easily future proof their business and serve their customers with mature cloud services and solutions, combined with streamlined operations and experienced customer care, making greater margins with less risk than by constructing their own services portfolios from scratch.
