In a success story which has Florida-based managed service provider Nerds Support, going from demoing to on-boarding new cloud-based customers in under one month, cloud-service provider OS33 showcased its capability to accelerate an MSP's ability to integrate and start selling cloud via its Quick Start Partner program.  In what would normally be a several months-long process in selling and deploying cloud services to its customers, Nerds Support was able to win new business after only two weeks of demonstrating OS33 to new prospects, and then quickly transitioning them to live clients weeks after.  All together, the OS33 Quick Start program and platform allowed Nerds Support to shorten its sales cycle, and almost instantly provide an in-demand comprehensive cloud-based service catalog to its clients.

Nerds Support was looking for a way to offer cloud-computing solutions that allow its customers to share, edit and publish documents in a unified system to improve communication, increase marketability, and enhance everyday business processes.  After initially looking to create and deploy an in-house solution through a Citrix application, Nerds Support researched other solutions that would allow it to offer a quick and accessible path to the cloud without the need for an intensive development phase.  Finding several offerings that lacked the capabilities it was looking for, Nerds Support turned to OS33 and its full-featured cloud computing IT delivery automation platform.

"Any MSP not in the cloud service market will quickly be obsolete," said Scott Richman, founder of Nerds Support.  "With OS33, there is no more waiting to get to the cloud.  Customers don't have to worry about licensing, they always have the best technology available and they can access their applications anywhere, anytime with an Internet connection.  No one else could deliver what OS33 offered so why re-invent the wheel when you can just make it faster?"

In addition to speed of deployment, Richman was interested in how OS33 could be integrated with Nerds Support's own grid – an option many other solutions could not provide.  He also appreciated the service's brandability, allowing Nerds Support to incorporate OS33's customizable, user-friendly Webtop GUI as its own, delivering a company branded end user IT environment from a single interface.

"We were able to get Nerds Support up and running on the OS33 platform in no time and allowed them to provide a quick and accessible path to the cloud for their customers without the cost and complexity of other offerings," said Jacob Kazakevich, OS33 President. "Within 24 hours, we can provide new Quick Start partners with a branded OS33 demo environment offering immediate go-to-market capability to sell cloud services. Once Quick Start partners have acquired new clients and are ready to go live, we transition access to a full production environment.  Nerds Support's success in diving into the cloud marketplace is a strong testament to our ability to provide MSPs with an innovative, quick-to-market solution."

OS33's easy-to-use, yet powerful managed services software platform, allows providers to provision and deliver hosted IT solutions to thousands of end users, transforming raw computing resources from the OS33 cloud or the MSP's own private infrastructure into business-ready Web and Windows applications and desktop hosting for their customers. MSPs can add new clients in five minutes or less and provision them with hosted business applications from a catalog of software and third-party SaaS offerings, along with integrated Citrix hosting and collaboration tools.  Utilization of OS33 tracking, billing and chargeback, ticketing and reporting ensures that the OS33 MSP partnership is profitable and makes good business sense.
