Tech Data forms partnership with Axon to deliver Dynamics Go CRM 'in a box'

Tech Data is teaming up with Microsoft cloud solutions provider Axon IT to make it easier for resellers to take advantage of the growing opportunities to provide Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM to their customers.

Under the agreement, Tech Data reseller partners have access to Axon's Dynamics Go "CRM in a box" offering that provides a pre-defined framework for selling and setting up Dynamics 365, backed by consultants and support, according to officials of the two companies.

Dynamics Go is intended to make it easier for resellers to offer the CRM solution without having to first develop their own capabilities in the solution.

"Most Microsoft partners offering Office 365 and Azure-based solutions will also uncover potential for Dynamics 365 CRM, but don't have the skills and confidence to follow them through," said Tim Mears, managing director of Axon, in a statement. "Our 'in a box' offering makes it completely straightforward. It's affordable, quick to deploy and will give the reseller's sales team the tools and the confidence they need to seize the day and take those opportunities."
