London, 19th September 2016: BCSG today announced that it will provide its Cloud Management platform to Optus, Australia’s second largest telecommunications company, to enhance its SME proposition.
Optus Smart Shop will enable Optus to offer a range of market leading SaaS solutions to its customers, including productivity, backup, expense management and CRM applications from ISVs including Microsoft, Sage, and Mozy. The applications will be delivered as white labelled services through BCSG’s cloud services marketplace.
Under this agreement, as well as the provision of its cloud services platform, BCSG will work with Optus to help tightly define its SME proposition by offering SaaS services.
BCSG will help to source and manage SaaS ISV agreements on Optus’s behalf, and also ‘embed’ sales trainers and channel managers in Optus’s business, to help drive its success in the SME market.
“Optus has made a real commitment to the SME market and we’re thrilled to be able to support its ambition to help businesses grow using cloud-based software solutions,” said Tom Platt, Commercial Director at BCSG. “Our platform will allow Optus to enhance its existing telecoms offerings with world-class software and services delivered easily through the cloud, while our additional consultancy will help Optus hone its market proposition and offering to attract new customers. We’re very much looking forward to being part of Optus’s journey in the SME market and part of its ongoing success.”
