Microsoft Licensing Solutions Provider (LSP) Softcat has recorded the sale of its millionth Office365 Enterprise Suite license (E3, E4 & E5 Suite), bringing the total number of Office365 licences sold by the reseller to almost five million. Softcat has been providing its customers with licensing and support for Office365 since the cloud-based solution was launched in 2011 and is the first UK LSP to reach this milestone. As a longstanding Microsoft partner, Softcat has helped thousands of customers migrate to Office365 and maintains a number of relevant accreditations including Gold volume licensing, Gold cloud platform and Gold small and mid-market cloud solutions.
Softcat's Alliances Director, James Baker, commented: "This is a significant milestone for Softcat and underlines both the importance our sales team put on providing Microsoft cloud solutions but also the appetite we see from our customers to adopt them. I'd like to thank Microsoft for their continued support and look forward to reaching our next milestone together."
Richard Ellis, Office Division Lead UK at Microsoft, added: "Microsoft UK are delighted to see the success and huge milestone of one million Office365 Suite licenses sold by Softcat. This adds to the 3.8 million Office365 Professional Plus licences also sold through Softcat. Microsoft remains committed to our channel partners, and milestones like this demonstrate both the popularity and widespread adoption of O365 in the market, particularly within the business community. Thanks and congratulations to all at Softcat for supporting this significant achievement"
The success Softcat has seen with Office365 coupled with a number of other achievements, including the transaction of over £1m of Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) licensing to the UK market since July 2016, has resulted in Softcat being named Microsoft's largest LSP in the UK this financial year. Softcat has experienced particular growth with their public sector customers, a motion supported by the recent opening of the Microsoft UK Datacentres, giving customers increased confidence about data sovereignty.
